How to define the IBM Debug Tool (IBM Debugger) as application in TPX?

Description:

When I try to start a session to the IBM Debug Tool my session hangs up.

Solution:

The IBM Debug Tool internally does a CLSDST and TPX cannot associate the second incoming BIND to an ACT entry.

The TPXlog will show message: TPXL0053 BINDLOST - NO ACT ENTRY FOUND - ACB= vtrm-ID, PLU=applid

Resolution:

Use an UNIQUE virtual terminal instead of a GROUP one for this application. This can be done by defining the IBM Debug Tool with TYPE=UNQ in the ACT.

Note:

TPX must be recycled when you change this parameter.
