    ****************************************************************
    01.The reported server DataStore version should be 9.1.1.
    02.Deleting a symbolic link for a folder from RSE deletes the
       folder contents.
    03.If a z/OS machine hasn't properly configured their DNS
       settings, an NPE can occur with the server. While there is
       already a workaround for this scenario, there is no message
       indicating to the administrator what might have gone wrong.
       The second issue is that .dstoreHashmap files can get
       frequently created in some scenarios and these files aren't
       very useful to users.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The reported DataStore version is now 9.1.1.
    02.When a user deletes a symbolic link for a folder, the
       contents are not deleted.
    03.The RSE server will attempt to fall back to reading the
       hostname via a shell command. If that fails then, a error
       message will indicate a problem and suggest the workaround.
       For .dstoreHashmap log entries will not get created by
       default and older ones will be deleted after a two days.
