Error description

  • In RDz v9.5.1.3 when a new debug configuration is created for
    z/OS, the generated EQUAOPTS dataset contains incorrect value
    for TEST option.
    
    What is done:
    Create a new debug configuration, for example for a Remote DB2
    application.
    In the DB2 tab, fill in values for Load module name, connectiont
    Select IBM Debug Tool as the engine.
    Select "Enable this configuration as the debug profile on the
    remote system"
    Enter a valid value for Profile Location, for example:
    &USERID.DBGTOOL.EQAUOPTS
    In the Debug Options Tab, do not specify a preference file.
    
    Click on Apply, and inspect the dataset on the host system for
    the profile location.
    
    What is expected:
    The TEST option should end with :*  for the TCPIP specification.
    
    What is observed:
    The * is missing
    

Local fix

  • Add the * manually
    

Problem summary

  • The Remote DB2 Application and Remote IMS Application debug
    configurations do not generate the appropriate TEST runtime
    option with respect to the debug preferences file.  For example,
     when not specifying a preference file, the following may be
    generated:
    TEST(,,,TCPIP&ip%port)
    instead of
    TEST(,,,TCPIP&ip%port:*)
    And when a preference file is specified in the debug
    configuration, the following may be generated
    TEST(,,,TCPIP&ip%port)
    instead of
    TEST(,,,TCPIP&ip%port:pref_file)
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Remote DB2 Application and Remote IMS Application debug
    configurations were not correctly detecting the setting that
    indicated that IBM Debug Tool was being used.  This issue should
     now be address and the TEST runtime option correctly generated
    with  a * when no debug preference file was specified, or
    include the preference in the TEST runtime option.
    
    The problem listed in this APAR has been resolved with
    IBM Rational Developer for z Systems V9.5.1.4 Fix Pack which
    is available from the Recommended Fixes support download page:
