Ok, the problem is the following: you allocate the library SERVER from PC
with RLS. Then you come on another way (via RSUBMIT) and want to open that
library (or a member in that library) in update mode. That seem to be not
I do not know the logic of you programs. Is it really necessary to use RLS
to allocate that library? Taht is only necessary if you are working on PC
and want to use that library as if it is a local PC library. If you do not
work on PC (rsubmit means: execution on the remote system, NOT in local
environment), why don't you allocate the library with the libname function
on the remote system?
If you have to work in both modes for some reasons, don't mix them! E.g.
you could allocate it on the remote system, make your updates and
deallocate it afterwords (libname clear) . Then you allocate it on PC with
RLS and continue working on PC.
Maybe you can do all what you want on the PC: Your Library is allocated on
PC. So start the SCL to do whatever ... ON PC (!!!) NOT BY RSUB, but only
with SUBMIT!!!!! Why is it necessary to RSUB it? For what reason? And if
you must RSUB something, why you allocate it by RLS? Just allocate it
remote by RSUBMIT and do all the rest also on your remote system!
