    01.Re-associating an MVS sub-project with CARMA repository
       causes the PDS member in the MVS sub-project to lose its
       reference to the CA Endevor element on the host.
    02.When invoking the search request, if the storage area used
       for the response is not initialized, this may cause errors
       when processing the request. The subsequent requests may
       fail as a result.
    03.When the repository association is changed at the subproject
       level, the child processes also lose the association. In
       some cases,this may happen when the member got moved in the
       repository.
    04.When invoking the search request, if the storage area used
       for the response is not initialized, this may cause errors
       when processing the request. The subsequent requests may
       fail as a result.
    05.When processing the search request, if the package name has
       embedded blanks, the name is truncated to first part of the
       name up to the first space. This causes the package not to
       be located.
    06.When selecting multiple elements, only the first element is
       processed for custom actions.
    07.In Rational Developer for System z (RDz) 9.1.1.5 host,
       attempting to establish a secure connection to a remote host
       will result in RSEG1056 error due to training blanks in
       ssl.properties file.
    
       Work around: Edit ssl.properties file in USS on the host,
       remove all trailing blanks, save the file and recycle RSE
       daemon.
    08.When using RDz 9.1.1.6 server to access a dataset residing
       on a volume that was relabeled after the dataset was
       created, the action can trigger a mount request for a volume
       with the old label, and hang the client waiting for the
       mount to complete.
    09.A filter without a wild card for a specific data set name
       can not show the data set if it is either alias, VSAM, GDS
       or GDG
    10.This update matches the fix for IBM Debug Tool APAR PI81873.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The IBM IDz Endevor integration has been changed to
       re-associate the PDS member when an association change is
       detected between the CA Endevor element and the PDS member
       in the MVS sub-project.
    02.The IBM IDz Endevor integration has been changed to
       initialize the response area prior to each request.
    03.The IBM IDz Endevor integration has been changed to allow
       the elements to re-associate with the repository.
    04.The IBM IDz Endevor integration has been changed to
       initialize the response area prior to each request.
    05.The IBM IDz Endevor integration has been changed to properly
       handle package names with embedded blanks.
    06.The IBM IDz Endevor integration has been changed to properly
       handle multiple element selections for custom actions.
    07.RDz server is updated to fix the issue.
    08.RDz server is updated to fix the issue.
    09.RDz host is updated to handle alias, VSAM, GDS or GDG data
       sets on processing filters.
    10.This update matches the fix for IBM Debug Tool APAR PI81873.
