Error description

  • Using the Host Configuration Utility with IBM Rational Developer
    for System z, the REXX script generating the target rsed.envvars
    truncates the file.
    
    When the Host Configuration Utility reads the envvars skeleton
    file, the ISPEXEC FTINCL service does not load the entire
    skeleton resulting in the truncated rsed.envvars file.
    
    The skeleton contains File Tailoring control characters in the
    data. &#194;&#160;The < and > values are treated as expressions and cause
    errors. &#194;&#160;
    Instead << and >> should be used in the skeleton.
    
    These changes have been made to the skeleton.
    

Local fix

  • Manually edit FEK.SFEKSKEL(FEKRSEDE) and replace < with << and >
    with >>
