Error description

  • IBM Rational Developer for z Systems - RDz
    
    The host codepage is not set correctly for JMON after a
    disconnect due to inactivity timeout for JMON connection.
    Jobs that are generated by RDz may fail because the wrong
    codepage is being used to translate dataset names found in
    the associated property group > syslib.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Start RDz with Codepage IBM-1146
    
    2. Add entry to associated Property group > syslib that
       contains symbol such as $, which is translated
       differently in codepage IBM-1047 and IBM-1146
    
       Successful job contains this DD statement:
         //        DD DISP=SHR,DSN=XYZ.P$.TEST
    
    3. Start Remote Syntax Check -> Runs successfully
    
    4. Wait until logout entry is viewed in JMON SYSOUT:
    
       FEJ224I Logout S9:USER1 due to idle timeout
    
    5. Start Remote Syntax Check again -> JCL error received
       because syslib entry was translated using codepage IBM-1047
       instead of IBM-1146
    
       Failing job contains this DD statement:
        //        DD DISP=SHR,DSN=XYA.P£.TEST
    

Local fix

  • Edit job to correct generated DD statement and resubmit

    *                         because of wrong codepage after      *

    01.The host codepage is not set correctly for JMON after a
       disconnect due to inactivity timeout for JMON connection.
       Jobs that are generated by RDz may fail because the wrong
       codepage is being used to translate dataset names found in
       the associated property group > syslib.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.After JMON connection is timed out and another connection is
       created, JES miner in RDz server does not send the corrent
       code page information to JMON server. JES miner module is
       updated to send the code page information in new established
       connections.
