Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v8.5.1.4
    If you attempt to delete a member of a PDS that has settings of
    read only, then the delete fails as it should.  However, if you
    attempt to delete the same member multiple times the GRS
    contention is not always released.
    
    You can display the contention (D GRS) on the member and see
    that the RDz threadpool deamon has a lock on it.
    
    For example,
    MVS D GRS,RES=(*,SYSA.TCPIP.TCPPROF*) will show:
    ISG343I 08.55.18 GRS STATUS 511
    S=SYSTEMS SPFEDIT SYSA.TCPIP.TCPPROF
    
    SYSNAME JOBNAME ASID TCBADDR EXC/SHR  STAT
    SYSA       RSED5     07B    08C95D0     EXC    OWN
