APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If a character such as a colon (':') is used as part of the name
    for an RSE connection the connection will create without
    problems but not work correctly.  Source members may be opened
    but saving changes will not be successful.
    

Local fix

  • Rename the connection to remove characters like ':' that are not
    valid for the naming of files or directories on the client
    platform.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * RDi users who define an RSE connection with ':' in the name. *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If an RSE connection is created with a ':' in its name,      *
    * source member saves do not work.                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The colon in the name messes up RSE's ability to properly
    recognize the host location and hence prevents uploads.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix has been provided in the RDi 9.1.1 update, so that names
    with ':' don't cause problems.
