How to enable the Endevor ESI Security trace in foreground and route it to a sequential dataset.

 



Environment

Release: All

Resolution

There are many times when support will ask you to enable a trace in foreground and send us the output. The easiest way to gather that trace is to route the output to a sequential dataset. Below is an example of how to enable the ESI trace in foreground and route it to a sequential dataset. There are few ways you can do this:

Option 1

  1. Login into Endevor
     
  2. On the command line of the Environments Option list type:
    TSO %ESITRACE DATASET DSN(IPRFX.ESITRC) NEW CAT
  3. Walk thru the actions that you need to recreate for the ESI Security problem
     
  4. Stop the trace by type commands 
    TSO %ESITRACE STOP
 

Option 2

  1. Pre-allocate the sequential file using the following using either 3.2, IEFBR140 or the TSO ALLOCATE commands. An example of the IEFBR14 and TSO ALLOCATE commands are below:

    //BR14 EXEC PGM=IEFBR14,COND=EVEN
    //TRACE DD DSN=USERID.ESITRACE,
    // DISP=(NEW,CATLG),
    // UNIT=SYSDA,
    // SPACE=(CYL,(1,1)),
    // DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=133,BLKSIZE=0)

    or

    TSO ALLOC DD(EN$TRESI) DA(USERID.ESITRACE) NEW CAT SPACE(11) CYLINDERS LRECL(133) BLKSIZE(0) RECFM(FB) UNIT(SYSDA)

     
  2. Login to Endevor
     
  3. On the command line of the Environment Option List type: 
    TSO ALLOC DD(EN$TRESI) DA(USERID.ESITRACE)MOD
  4. Perform the action(s) that you need to recreate for the ESI Security Problem
     
  5. Stop the trace by typing the following commands:
    TSO %ESITRACE STOP
    TSO FREE DD(EN$TRESI)
 

Option 3:

Have the Endevor Administrator add the following DD Statements to your Endevor CLIST:

ALLOC DD (BSTERR) SYSOUT REUSE
ALLOC DD (EN$TRESI) DA(*) SHR
