          1. The problem “No connection” Edit/View of TSO/ISPF  library        

One of ISPF’s “best kept secrets” in z/OS is the Work Station Agent (WSA for short). When you have not enough z/OS experience or you have by chance not properly operated with TSO/ISPF C/S WSA complicated functionality you may get into situation not  able to do your everyday system work as result of some remained  settings.

The following “No connection”  problem may arise during or after finishing your client/server connection as follows.

If you are working in ISPF C/S WSA for file transfers between PC and Mainframe and when finally you  exit from this connection with WSDISCON command in ISPF or stop wsa.exe application on PC,   a nagging message in TSO ‘No Connection’  appears when you want to edit/view  any member in edit /view  mode  of  ISPF library.

If enter p.3.4 – browse(B) library dsn: BC2A.ZOS140.OPER.LIB  and choose to edit/view member ALT07022, the following happens:

BROWSE             BC2A.ZOS140.OPER.LIB

Name     Prompt       Size   Created          Changed          ID

After  command v/e  is ented for  ALT07022 member you receive:

BROWSE/EDIT            BC2A.ZOS140.OPER.LIB                           No connection

V/E         ALT07022                 34  2005/09/12  2011/05/03 17:54:33  BCA1MGP

Pressing F1 displays the following message:
This action requires a connection with the workstation to be established. A
workstation connection can be established from ISPF Settings panel or enter
WSCON from any command line.

Following the advice of the above message you reestablish C/S wsa connection between Mainframe and PC (work station)  and when you are trying again to edit/view  any member of ISPF library,  you will receive the following message:

EDIT              BC2A.ZOS140.OPER.LIB                       WS command failed

Workstation command failed. Return code = 1.

Your collegua is still able to edit/vew  any member in any library  with his own login, bot not you!  (After you Login with IBMUSER or login to  another LPAR without WSA started/installed  it is also OK for you to  edit/vew  a member of  library). If you  compare your  WSCON settings and  and these  of  your collegua  they are exactly the same.

What to do?
