Error description

  • APAR Error Description:
    Rational Developer for System z 8.5.1.1 - RDz - When JOBCARD
    skeletal JCL member used for CARMA Endevor batch
    actions/requests, last line of JOBCARD suppressed from generated
    JCL.
    
    When customer has specified a default jobcard in their CRABCFG
    member (i.e. DEFAULT-JOBCARD  = CRABJOBC), the last line of JCL
    specified
    in the DEFAULT-JOBCARD member is suppressed when JCL is
    generated.  CARMA user will experience a JCL error if the last
    line
    in DEFAULT-JOBCARD is a 'continuation' of the JOBCARD for the
    Endevor batch action ('Submit as batch job' selected on Endevor
    request).
    
    Local Fix:
    
    (1) Add a comment JCL statement (//*) as last line/statement in
    DEFAULT-JOBCARD member OR (2) user can manually modify JOBCARD
    when presented the 'Batch
    Submit Preview' screen.  Once JOBCARD is modified here, that
    modified JOBCARD will be used for subsequent Endevor batch
    requests for that CARMA user.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: 01.RDz users who access the Endevor          *
    *                    repository using the IBM supplied RDz     *
    *                    Endevor RAM and set up separate jobcards  *
    *                    templates that are to be used with the    *
    *                    JCL templates when performing Element     *

    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 01.When a default jobcard is specified  *
    *                         in the CRABCFG DD dataset member,    *
    *                         the last line of the jobcard is      *
    *                         suppressed when the JCL is           *
    *                         generated.                           *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    01.The RDz client is not picking up the last line of the
       jobcard that is sent by the Endevor RAM. Inserting a JCL
       comment line at the end of the Jobcard is a workaround. Or,
       the user can modify the Jobcard in the preview dialog.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 01.The RDz Endevor RAM is being changed to insert a JCL comment
       line at the end of the jobcard so that if the RDz client
       drops the last line, the original default Jobcard that is
       presented in the preview dialog is what is expected.
