    ****************************************************************
    01.When working with packages located in a CA Endevor R17 or
       above repository, accessing packages may cause errors.
    02.A recent change in how the code page was specified resulted
       in a change being required in CARMA to also adjust to how
       the code page is specified.
    03.When the element is locked by IDz, the lock owner is the
       Endevor RAM job. It is not possible to know from the client
       which user id the Endevor RAM job is running under. Locking
       is enabled by default by the IDz Endevor RAM. An option
       needs to be provided so that the systems administrator can
       request that locking not be done if this is what the site
       has decided.
    04.When working with packages located in a CA Endevor R17 or
       above repository, accessing packages may cause errors.
    05.In IBM Developer for z Systems (IDz) v14.1.2, while
       refreshing CARMA packages, users may intermittently see
       'Refreshing' has encountered a problem. Clicking on the
       Details button will display the following errors:
    
       CRRZC2122E Could not execute Get Repository Instances:
       CRRZC2200E An error was received from the CARMA host  <CARMA
       host name> :  500  500: Return CODE: 0012 REASON CODE: 0003
       ERROR MESSAGE: API0000E ERROR(S) DETECTED, PROCESSING
       TERMINATED
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The IBM IDz Endevor integration has been changed to properly
       handle working with packages located in a CA Endevor R17 or
       above repository.
    02.The IBM CARMA framework has been changed to properly handle
       the new code page format.
    03.The IDz Endevor RAM has been updated to provide an option so
       that the systems administrator can request that locking not
       be done if this is what the site has decided.
    04.The IBM IDz Endevor integration has been changed to properly
       handle working with packages located in a CA Endevor R17 or
       above repository.
    05.The IBM IDz Endevor integration has been changed to properly
       handle working with packages located in a CA Endevor R17 or
       above repository.
