    01.There is no way for RDz client to know the actual server
       version. This can be a problem under some conditions.
    02.When the CRAALLOC/CRANDVRA exec substitutes system
       variables, like TSO prefix, it accepts that null strings are
       returned. This results in an invalid DSN due to a missing
       qualifier, and thus an allocation error.
    03.When CRASUBxx starts with a comment line instead of the CLIST
       PROC statement, CARMA cannot determine the correct number of
       arguments that ust be passed.
    04.host config utility workitem allocates sample RAM VSAM
       instead of Endevor RAM VSAM. Host config utility workitem
       defines ISPPROF as a sequential file in
       crastart.endevor.conf.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.There is a mechanism that DataStore client and server
       exchange their versions during the connection establishment
       phase. The DataStore server version is controlled by the
       property of DSTORE_VERSION. Now, RDz daemon picks up the
       server version from SMP information and sets the server
       version forcibly to the DSTORE_VERSION property.
    02.CRAALLOC/CRANDVRA now strips null-length qualifiers
    03.carma.startup.rex now searches for the PROC line
    04.Problems resolved
    

Temporary fix
