Hi Craig,

What I'd suggest is contacting your IT group and ask them to add a hook in the HA software that does this for you.

Generally most HA software allow a before and after command. They can add a notification that the debug server is going down to ping you, stop the debug server, then do the save while active, then restart the debug server, and ping you to let your team know the service is available.

Hope this helps!

Hi all,

Our system performs several save-while-active saves during the day.
This is beyond my control.

I understand from previous posts that processes which exclusively allocate objects can cause issues with SEPs on the IBM i

And I believe this is the reason that periodically my RDi debug sessions stops working - breakpoints don't break etc.

Once this has happened, I can end the debug server on the IBM i (ENDDBGSVR) and when I remove and then re-add the Service Entry Point from within RDi it will not prompt me to Start the Debug Server even though I know it is not running.

At that point, the only thing I know which will work is to close down RDi and restart it.
Adding my SEP in RDi after the restart will give me the Start Debug Server dialogue box, and my RDi debug session will work again.

I can live with this, but I was wondering if there is anything else I can do in RDi, short of restarting it that might get things back in sync.

Thanks kindly,
