Error description

  • In plugin-cfg.xml, turn on tracing:
    <Log LogLevel="Trace">
    
    The
    plugin system information section of the trace is missing the
    Fix Pack (FP) level of the version field:
    PLUGIN:
    --------------------System
    Information-----------------------
    PLUGIN: Bld version:
    8.5.5
    PLUGIN: Bld date: Jul 25 2018, 12:28:59
    
    The version
    should be displayed as 8.5.5.xx where XX is the FixPack
    level.
    
    There is no way to determine exactly what Fix Pack the
    plugin is at because versionInfo is not available on z/OS.
    

Local fix

  • You can guess at roughly what Fix Pack is being run by looking
    at the build date.
