    A RDz client running RDz v7.6 connects to a RDz host that is

    never end on the host when using the RDz display clients
    command.
    
    F RSED,APPL=D c
    MODIFY RSED,APPL=DISPLAY CLIENT

    F RSED,APPL=C U=userid
    MODIFY RSED,APPL=CANCEL USER=userid

    ****************************************************************
    01.Daemon utilizes ZosSystemMiner finish() method to know the
       client's disconnect. But RDz 7.6.x client does not issue
       activate-miner command for ZosSystemMiner.
    02.RSE always creates a null-sized fekfivpd.log file in the
       daemon.log directory on startup, even if the daemon IVP is
       not executed.
    03.audit.log.mode=RW.R.R caused a wrong message, ERROR
       LogHandler: audit.log.mode has an invalid mode specified:
       input=RW.R.R.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.Now, the connect information will be cleared even when the
       user connects via RDz 7.6.x.
    02.Now, fekfivpd.log file is created only when a IVP is
       invoked.
    03.Now, audit.log.mode=RW.R.R is accepted.
