Error description

  • IBM Developer for z Systems - IDz - v14.1 generates an EQAUOPTS
    dataset with string DBMDT.userid instead of DBMDT%userid for
    IMS remote debug application.
    
    DBMDT.userid is not supported by the zDebugger server runtime
    for IMS, see
    https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&
    CR_ID=109652
    
    1- select menu Run > Debug configurations...
    2- create a new configuration for "Remote IMS application"
    3- on Debug options tab, select "Debug tool compatibility mode"
    4- click "Apply"
    5- EQAUOPTS DD on the host contains a string like:
    <TST>TEST(ALL,,PROMPT,DBMDT.myuser:*)

    all generated TEST options (include systems with IMS, DB2, CICS)
    will be DBMDT%userid or DBM%userid when debug manager is
    selected.
