Error description

  • In Rational Developer for System z (RDz) v9.1.1 host and ACF2,
    error feedback fails when unexpected messages are issued during
    the allocation of a workfile. This problem may be  observed
    during a remote syntax check or zunit testing. Here is an
    example of what may be recorded in FEKLOGs:
    
    ACF0C038 ACF2 LOGONID ATTRIBUTES HAVE REPLACED DEFAULT USER
    ATTRIBUTES
    
    The same issue exists in RDz host versions 9.5.0, 9.5.1 and IDz
    14.0.
    

Local fix

  • To prevent unexpected messages from being created you can add
    the line below to the fekferrf.rex command file on the host,
    which by default can be found in USS directory
    /usr/lpp/rdz/bin/fekferrf.rex  (for v9.1) or in
    /usr/lpp/zexpl//bin/fekferrf.rex (for RDz 9.5.1):
    
    Address TSO "PROF NOWTPMSG"

    01.In Rational Developer for System z (RDz) v9.1.1 host and
       ACF2, error feedback fails when unexpected messages are
       issued during the allocation of a workfile. This problem may
       be observed during a remote syntax check or zunit testing.
       Here is an example of what may be recorded in FEKLOGs:
    
       ACF0C038 ACF2 LOGONID ATTRIBUTES HAVE REPLACED DEFAULT USER
       ATTRIBUTES
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.Because ACF2 generates an additional informational message
       during a data set allocation request as RACF generates no
       messages,RDz server appends this message after the allocated
       data set name. RDz client assumes server only send data set
       name string as a normal response. If more messages exist in
       the response, RDz client treats it as an error. RDz server
       is updated not to append additional messages to the
       response, if the response comes from fekferrf.rex, the
       module to process the data set allocation request, and no
       other error condition is detected.
