I was recently talking to some people who didn't know (since they had
that authority) that others often can't use the RDP debugger because
it uses STRSRVJOB under the covers and they do not have *SERVICE
authority. I am wondering if my knowledge is an ancient tidbit.
Because I am seeing ptf cover letters for V5R3 that says that was

who wanted to debug. And that ptf is now on a cume.
So, do they have matching ptf's for supported OS's or is it now in
I see there may still be a limitation on trying to debug a job
