Error description

  • z/OS Debugger service for IDz 14.0.0.5.
    
    --- Features ---
    
    -Support for CICS Transaction Server for z/OS V5.4.
    
       FIXCAT KEYWORD: CIC0504T/K
    
    -Support is added for IMS Version 15 Release 1.
    
    -CICS DTCN transaction supports new Session Types:
     DTC and DIR.
    
    -Allow store of STARTSTOP msgs in STARTSTOPMSGDSN in CICS
     environment.
    
    -z/OS Debugger Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility: Add LIST
     capability to IMS Transaction Isolation Facility batch
     interface.
    
    -z/OS Debugger IMS Transaction Isolation Facility: Implement
     DFSMSCE0 exit sharing.
    
    -RFE 95867:  A new EQAOPTS command, DISABLERLIM, is added to
     control whether z/OS Debugger disables Omegamon RLIM resource
     limiting during a debug session.  The default will be to
     disable RLIM.
    
    --- End Features ---
    
    --- Service ---
    
    -Short-on-storage (SOS) in CICS when debugging application with
     large EQALANGX file.
     (PI75071 at 13.1)
    
    -ABEND in EQA0SXUT+'5208'x with SET LIST BY SUBSCRIPT ON in
     remote debug session.
     (PI75101 at 13.1)
    
    -Memory view contains ???? when it should contain values.
     (PI75428 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility uses delay debug
     option which conflicts with the EQAOPTS delay debug option.
     (PI80811 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool fails with ABENDS0C4 in EQA0SBPP+'1C3E' in remote
     debug session start up.
     (PI78394 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool program check at EQA00AEI+'9A6'x when run EQAWIVPB
     sample in remote debug mode.
     (PI78765 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool: SVC Screening ON - abend when multitasking is done
     via ATTACH.
     There are different scenarios which will be fixed with this
     APAR:
      Debug Tool: ABEND in IMS application when started with
                  EQANMDBG.
      Debug Tool: ABENDS0C4 when returning from subtask.

    -CSV014I LOAD TO GLOBAL OF MODULE progA  FAILED, USER
     UNAUTHORIZED
     followed by abend 206-08 in Debug Tool session.
     (PI77222 at 13.1)
    
    -When debugging a program using Debug Tool, the
     following message is received:
      EQA1997I - VTAM3270 waiting for LU XXXXXXXX
     (PI78363 at 13.1)
    
    -ABENDS0C6 in DLIPEM during debug session with Debug Tool.
     Traceback will show ABENDS0C4 in EQA00EVH+'AAFE'x.
     (PI78653 at 13.1)
    
    -ABENDS0C4 in EQA00OHI+'4F0'x in HOGAN BATCH debugging.
     (PI78687 at 13.1)
    
    -Using the Debug Tool IMS Transaction Isolation Facility, in
     some circumstances, the messages stay in the IMS input queue
     or input buffer after the debug session has been terminated.
     (PI80815 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool, with the IMS Transaction Isolation Facility, can
     still remain active after a stop of the IMS sub-region.
    
     The panel "IMS Transaction Isolation Facility" shows that the
     sub-region has been stopped. In the panel "SDSF active user"
     it can be observed that the sub-region is still
     present/running.
    
     This can happen, for example, when the user makes the "stop"
     of the IMS sub-region in the TSO interface while the process /
     program is stopped on a breakpoint in the Debug Perspective
     within the RDz interface.
     (PI80876 at 13.1)
    
    -Incorrect value displayed for assembler variable because of
     USING/DROP  and PUSH/POP.
