Message ARS0446E
« on: July 17, 2017, 03:32:16 PM »
ODF 9.5 is placing message ARS0446E on ARSSOCKD, but it is not very clear what the problem is. I could not find 0446E anywhere. Does anybody have an explanation for 0446E? Thanks.

Hello Heloisa!

Unfortunately that message hasn't made it to the online doc yet.  I've sent a reminder to ensure it'll be in the next refresh.

Here's the notes I have on that message:

 The ARSODF.XML file is required if you send any emails as part of your
 ODF processing.

 ARSODF.XML file is used as input to the program.
 That program needs to know where java is installed on the z/OS server.

 You tell it that  by adding ARS_JAVA_CMD parm to ars.cfg

 OnDemand 9.5 pre-reqs java  7.0.1

 Added ARS_JAVA_CMD=/usr/lpp/java/J8.0/bin/java    to the ARS.cfg
 file. but the results were the same .
 The arsodf.xml in the sample directory seems to be in ASCII.  Does it
 need to edited and maintained in ascii ?

 Try adding "/bin/java" on the end.  I realize that
 ARS_JAVA_CMD does not point to the directory
 but the actual java command itself.


 Yes, arsodf.xml needs to be edited and maintained in ascii.

 You could use iconv in USS to convert it back and forth.

 1) cd /etc/ars/
 2) iconv -f UTF-8 -t IBM-1047 arsodf.xml > arsodf_iconv.xml
 3) mv arsodf.xml arsodf.original.xml
 4) edit arsodf_iconv.xml
 5) iconv  -f IBM-1047 -f UTF-8  arsodf_iconv.xm > arsodf.xml
 I don't know if that is easiest way but that should work.

Make sure your Java is 64-bit.
