Closed as program error.
In RDz v188.8.131.52 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
Add the * manually
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)
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 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
