To answer my own question, what I was missing is that the System Debugger does not use the same method to connect to the IBM i that ACS and Run SQL Scripts use.

ACS and Run SQL Scripts use the systems defined in the ACS -> System Configurations.

Run SQL Scripts apparently passes the system name and job to the System Debugger, which displays it in the window title bar, but when it actually tries to connect, it uses the system name and does its own thing to connect, i.e. it does not use the IP address associated with that system name in the ACS System Configuration.

Once in the System Debugger, I had to use File -> Change System and use an appropriate name or IP address that's ping-able from Windows, which in this case, none of the system names in the System Configuration were.

I'm running ACS 1.1.8.5 on a Win10 system.  I connect to a v5r4 system, click on Run SQL Scripts, which starts fine.  I'm able to run a simple SQL to verify that I am indeed connected, then I go to the Run menu, click on System Debugger, and it opens the debugger window.

At the top of the debugger window, it shows the job and system I'm connected to, as well as my user id.  After a few seconds, with me doing nothing, a Error window pops up saying "Unknown system 'Myibmi' was specified."  That's the same system name that's at the top of the System Debugger window, where it was apparently able to connect to a QZDASOINIT job with no problem. And that job is running. Its joblog shows

The job start message shows 10/04/2021, but all the other messages are from today, 10/06/2021.

On the IBM i, I used STRDBGSVR, then tried again.  Didn't help.

I tried connecting to a v7r3 system, but got the same error.

What am I missing?
