APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
The Dump Communications Trace (DMPCMNTRC) command is being
changed to allow the creation of stream files in Packet Capture
(PCAP) format.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE35740' :
-------------------------------
To create a stream file in PCAP format, a data area in library
QGPL with the name QCMNTRCPCP must be created before using the
Dump Communications Trace (DMPCMNTRC) command. Only the
existence of the data area is considered to decide the format,
so neither the TYPE nor the contents of the data area are of
importance. To create a data area you can use the Create Data
Area (CRTDTAARA) command. The following is an example on how to
create it:

CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QGPL/QCMNTRCPCP) TYPE(*LGL)

To create a stream file with the previous format of the
Communications Trace, which can be used with the Print
Communications Trace (PRTCMNTRC) command, there must be no data
area named QCMNTRCPCP in library QGPL before using the Dump
Communications Trace (DMPCMNTRC) command. To delete a data area
you can use the Delete Data Area (DLTDTAARA) command. The
following is an example on how to delete a data area:

DLTDTAARA DTAARA(QGPL/QCMNTRCPCP)

Only the following data link layer protocols can be dumped in
PCAP format:
-Ethernet
-Frame Relay
-HDLC
-PPP
-Token Ring
-Wireless (802.11)
If another protocol is used, an error will be displayed. In
that case, you may use the previous format and the Print
Communications Trace (PRTCMNTRC) command to analyze the data.

Please note that files in PCAP format cannot be printed with
the Print Communications Trace (PRTCMNTRC) command.
