Problem(Abstract)

IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) Enterprise Extensions Dependency build fails with 0C4 with U4038 abend reporting an IRX0040I error from the REXX EXEC using the ISPF Gateway and CEE0802C error from the Language Environment.

Cause

The /tmp directories used with the z/OS IBM RTC Enterprise Extensions Dependency build was filled to capacity.

There are two parts of RTC Enterprise Extension builds on z/OS that may point to a /tmp directory:

  • Build Forge Agent
  • ISPF Gateway

Both default to /tmp and have the potential to fill the directory if builds are large or numerous.

Resolving the problem

Procedure:

  1. Use the command df -kP /tmp in OMVS or ISH to list out the storage space used and available for /tmp.

    Filesystem    1024-blocks Used     Available   Capacity   Mounted on  
    OMVS.TMP.HFS  2079360     1328100  751124      64%        /SYSTEM/tmp


  2. Change the /tmp location for one or both as follows:

    Note: If you have production and test environments, be sure that they point to different /tmp locations for both the ISPF Gateway and the Build Forge Agent.

    • Build Forge Agent: Change the Build Forge Agent configuration file (bfagent.conf).
      • The parameter tmpdir specifies the location of any temporary files the agent creates. If the keyword is not included, the agent uses /tmp as the location for the temporary files.

        See details in the IBM Rational Team Concert InfoCenter.

    • ISPF Gateway: Edit the ISPF Gateway shell script, startispf.sh.
      • Add the following line to the shell script:

        export TMPDIR=/
        yourTemporaryDir

        See details in the IBM Rational Team Concert InfoCenter.
