Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.1 RDz APAR PI18944 addressed the problem of the reading the pushtoclient.properties files when there is trailing whitespace characters in the file. However, not all fields were checked and changed in this APAR. There are more fields that need to be changed in order for the push to client to work when the pushtoclient.properties file contains whitespace characters to fill lines.
Update the pushtoclient.properties file using an editor for the USS file and remove the whitespace characters.
The RDz client may incorrectly interpret host configuration settings when there are extraneous whitespace characters embedded in the settings file. One example is the pushtoclient.properties setting config.enabled=saf being interpreted as an invalid access control method when a trailing whitespace character causes the client to incorrectly conclude that the setting is not equal to "saf". As a result, when an RDz user starts the client with a new workspace and connects to the appropriate host, some saved configuration/preferences are not downloaded to the client.
The code which interprets the pushtoclient.properties file has been modified to trim any whitespace characters before testing the setting's value. The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with IBM Rational Developer for System z V184.108.40.206 Fix Pack which is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2294&uid=swg27006335
