That looks right to me...I'm doing the same type of thing right now. The
STRSRVJOB and STRDBG don't show any errors, right? Your library list is set
up like the batch job, right? IOW you're not debugging a program in a
different library than what the job is using.

I have a job that is running in batch, its actually in a DEQA status while

it'll fire and run.

The problem is I need to run it in debug to check some values that are
calculated during run time, but even using STRSRVJOB doesn't seem to be

Here is what I've tried to do:

The job is already running in batch and sitting in a DEQA status.
1. Start a second session
2. Enter STRSRVJOB with the job name, user and number
3. STRDBG with the name of the program running in batch and enter a break

I send the data to the data queue, expecting that the program should enter
debug but it never happens. I know I'm missing a simple step, so a quick
pointer or two would be greatly appreciated.
