Debugging the Server

The server can be debugged by using either the -d or -D options. The -d option launches server to one-shot mode. In this mode, the server accepts only one connection and exits after the session is disconnected. The -D option launches server to continuous debug mode. In this mode, the server accepts several connection and needs to be stopped manually.

Debug level 4 is usually sufficient. For more detailed information, debug level 7 can be used.

Degugging Using USS shell

When debugging server, second server daemon can be started to a different TCP port or alternatively the existing server can be stopped and the same port can be used for debugging.

Debugging can be started with command:

/usr/lpp/ssh2/sbin/sshd2 -d 4 -p 1234

In the command, -d defines the debug level and -p the TCP port. With this command the debug output is displayed to the screen.

Debug can also be forwarded to a file:

/usr/lpp/ssh2/sbin/sshd2 -d 4 -p 1234 2>/tmp/debug_file.dat

Debugging using a Started Task

The -D option can be used on the SSHD2 started task. Output is stored to the defined STDERR file.

//RUNSSHD2D PROC
//SSHD2   EXEC PGM=BPXBATCH,REGION=0M,TIME=NOLIMIT,
//             PARM='PGM /usr/lpp/ssh2/sbin/sshd2 -D 7'
//STDOUT   DD  PATH='/home/SSHD2/sshd2.out',
//             PATHOPTS=(OWRONLY,OCREAT,OTRUNC),
//             PATHMODE=SIRWXU
//STDERR   DD  PATH='/home/SSHD2/sshd2.err',
//             PATHOPTS=(OWRONLY,OCREAT,OTRUNC),
//             PATHMODE=SIRWXU
//STDENV   DD  DSN=SSHD2.SSZ.SAMPLIB(SSHENV),
//             DISP=SHR
//STDIN    DD  DUMMY
//        PEND
