ZFile's getVsamRBA method not returning xrba

Post by Scottz » Wed May 08, 2019 7:54 pm

Does ZFile not support returning extended rbas with its getVsamRBA method?
When the rba number on an ESDS file gets at or above 4GB, the method always returns 4,294,967,295.
The record is written to the ESDS file, but can't be referenced by its rba.
This makes extended rbas inaccessible.
Is there a way to get ZFile to return the XRBA instead of just the RBA?

Please submit an RFE to IBM on this.
