It has been a long road today and I am going nowhere.
I am reinstalling z/Open Source files after a install of z/OS 2.3.
I strongly suspect that the tar file is being corrupted as it bounces around on its way to z/OS.
Here are the steps I used.
A download from the Rocket web site to my downloads file directory.
A PC move from downloads to a desktop folder (for convenience)
A Win/SCP BINARY (yes BINARY) transfer from my PC to a personal directory on z/os (/u/tech905.RocketOpen)
The tar command is run (using the minimal instructions from the website AND from an example here in the forum) Both Get message
tar: checksum error on tape (got 4355, expected 0)
Of course, without gzip I cannot extract and test any of the other downloaded files.
Is there a way to do a direct download from Rocket to z/OS?
Where did this bouncing file get broken??
