Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z (RDz) V8.5.1.4, PushToClient
    export action fails to properly upload z/OS mapping file,
    zossys.xml, to the host. Upon exporting the zossys.xml file from
    client to the host and
    inspecting the date of the file, the user notices that the file
    still has the original (as-shipped) default
    date 1970/01/01.
    
    How to Reproduce:
    
    
    1 On the RDz client, edit the z/OS Mapping for one of your host
    systems
    2 Before exporting the file, delete the existing zossys.xml file
    on the host
    3 Perform steps to export configuration files (File ? Export ?
    Rational Developer for System z ? Configuration Files)
    
    4 After exporting (uploading) the configuration files and
    listing the file, zossys.xml still has the old default date
    
    Local fix:
    Manually update the file on the host
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • If there is no mapping file in the client (i.e. local change)
    sub-folder for generic mappings, then changes are never saved to
    the client sub-folder and are therefore never exported since the
    local change (client) sub-folder has no changes.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been modified to always save mapping changes to the
    client sub-folder rather than first checking to see if a file
    exists in the client sub-folder.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for System z V8.5.1.5 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
