Host - Fix Pack 1 (8.5.1.1)
Link Date Released Status
Host APARs Description
PM78800 Rational Developer for System z: Internal v8.5.1.1 defects/enhancements (NON-RSE): - FA integration is missing data for some of the events in the event summary - compatibility with z/OS UNIX APAR OA41101 - invalid SCLM Types returned in populate project request - when using the RDz CARMA Endevor RAM PRINT-MEMBER function, the dataset name is not copied into the JCL - when a Jobcard member is not found, an error is displayed when it should not since the jobcard is optional
PM78805 Rational Developer for System z: Internal v8.5.1.1 defects/enhancements (OPENRSE): - NPE if rsecomm.log cannot be created - data set lock not released when client ends - backup file causes problem when parent folder is read-only - multiple RDz RSE servers get *timeout* status, which is never reset
PM79619 Rational Developer for System z: When using the new CARMA Endevor "Quick Edit" feature on element, API0005E error is returned
PM80976 Rational Developer for System z: Internal v8.5.1.1 defects/enhancements (RSE): - missing quotes in sample CGI_ISPPREF definition - RDz client cannot connect to SSL server using client certificate. - expanding a filter containing 40,000 datasets on RDz client takes more than 3 minutes - there is not enough trace to show why a new threadpool server is started - multiple RDz RSE servers get *timeout* status, which is never reset - search fails with error owing to dynamic allocation failure - when doing a Remote Search on MVS filters, customer sometimes gets good results but sometimes the search hangs with message "Searching MVS Files : Waiting for server response". However, the Remote Search always works well when done directly on the PDS inside the MVS Filter - the "...xx more" command at the top list of an RSE-filter with at least 2 filter strings does not display all the members - when doing a Remote Search on PDS, customer has good response time and correct results for about the 2/3 first searches. Then, for the next searches (always on PDSs), the CPU is getting higher (till 70-80%) and results get wrong (hits number decreases significantly for initial hits about 5000-6000, but for initial hits about 20, results remain OK). - enhancement to remove usage of volume RESERVE

Host - Mod Pack 1 (8.5.1)
Link Date Released Status
Host APARs Description
PM66822 Rational Developer for System z: Internal v8.5.1.0 defects/enhancements (non-RSE):
  • Possible incorrect change code in properties table for selected member
  • Invalid error on missing environment variable displayed in SCLM operations log
  • When the client RSE connection, or the MVS subsystem is configured with a different code page than what is being used on the server, MVS member names may be misrepresented in the Remote Index search results, resulting in the inability to open the matching file from the Remote Index Search view. In addition, searches where users have defined mixed code pages for files that are indexed may fail to find matches, since the files will have been indexed using the code page that the Rational Developer for System z server is running with.
  • Error parsing closing tags in report.
  • Support for mapping XML elements and attributes of type xsd:boolean has been added to COBOL Compiled XML Conversion in the IMS COBOL top-down synchronous callout scenario
  • Rational Developer for System z users are not able to browse the CA Endevor elements to which they only have read-only access.
  • Rational Developer for System z users need reduced number of steps to locate and access the CA Endevor elements and to work with them.
  • Rational Developer for System z users need to customize jobs before they are submitted.
  • The label for the message that results from an action says "Error Message" even when the operation completed successfully. This can create confusion.
  • A logical record length of 80 is not sufficient to provide the information that are needed for some of the items.
  • When attempting to edit an element and saving it at a lower level that would cause jumping over another version of that element in the build map, the CA Endevor API provides a caution return code. The Endevor RAM interpreted the caution as an error, when it should not. When editing an element at a higher level environment and choosing as target a lower level environment, the changes made to the element are being saved at the entry stage of the higher level environment instead of at the entry stage of the lower level environment.
  • When attempting to edit an element and CARMA tries to get the memberid of the element at the new location, the stage name is missing from the memberid. This causes the RAM not to be able to correctly locate the element.
  • When editing an element and saving it in batch mode, if the temporary edit dataset name is too long, the SCL will contain a statement that goes past column 72 and thus result in the statement being truncated. This causes the Add Element to fail.
  • When searching for elements by CCID, the CCID fields of the search dialog are being ignored. This results in search results with other elements and not just the desired ones.
  • When retrieving elements by CCID in batch mode, in the generated SCL, the line containing the WHERE CCID clause has binary zeroes at the end of it. This causes errors in the execution of the JCL because the SCL is then considered invalid as a result of the binary zeroes being contained within it.
  • When creating a new Endevor element using the New -> Endevor Element function, the ability to specify the processor group is not provided in the "New Endevor Element" dialog. This is needed when a site does not allow default processor group when creating a new element. When creating a new Endevor element using the New -> Endevor Element function, the return dialog sometimes give an error stating that the number of expected return values is not what is expected.
  • When creating a new package using the New -> Endevor Package function, the target Stage Id dropdown in the "New Endevor Package View" dialog contains an error message instead of the list of stages. Continued in APAR PM77375
PM66834 Rational Developer for System z: Internal v8.5.1.0 defects/enhancements (RSE):
  • Remote search lines that are too long hover in the search results
  • Search result of load module doesn't show lines as the same strings
  • Cannot delete unexpired data sets
  • Abend when threadpool exceeds system max threads
  • Option to disable Remote Index Search menu item
PM67318 Rational Developer for System z: CARMA Endevor Element open causes Abend E37 on CRA$NDVR.DEPEND file
PM67928 Rational Developer for System z: Internal v8.5.1.0 defects/enhancements (OPENRSE):
  • Cancel search does not stop search on host
  • Server Finish processing takes a very long time
  • ServerUpdateHandler.removeSenderWith takes 30 minutes
PM69304 Rational Developer for System z: Environment variable _CMDSERV_BASE_HOME not set
PM70070 Rational Developer for System z: Internal v8.5.1.0 defects/enhancements (JMON): Hang when opening large JES output -m operator command/startup option
PM71360 Rational Developer for System z: An error occurred retrieving the SYSLIB information from SCLM for "member"
PM71977 Support for Extended Address Volume (EAV)
PM75387 Rational Developer for System z: IEC142I 113-38 error received when accessing IAM files
PM77375 Rational Developer for System z: Internal v8.5.1.0 defects/enhancements (non-RSE) continuation:
  • Enhancement to allow less stringent path specifications in CRASRV.properties
  • Enhancement to disable a RAM
  • Enhancement to add reformatted RSE logs to FEKLOGS
  • Lock daemon IVP does not do atomic writes like RSE when contacting the lock daemon
  • Serviceability enhancements
    • touch all Endevor RAM output DD's
    • report missing CRASTART loadmodule
    • FEKLOGS support for relative paths in CRASRV.properties and version specific checks
  • Enhancements to FEKLOGS: version specific checks, extra validation of USS paths
  • ABEND878 in FEKLOGS job
  • Enhancement that shows build dates of key components
  • Removing PsssTicket IVP from IVP=IVP startup
  • The AZUTSTRN stub error message only mentions sticky bit. This enhancement produces a correct error message when the related load module cannot be found
  • DD STDENV with rsed.envvars in started task JCL fails startup
