Error cloning a repo in USS to my local workstation

  • 1.  Error cloning a repo in USS to my local workstation

    I have a git repository in my uss folder and i am trying to clone that to my windows workstation.

    I gave the following command in my local git bash

    git clone usrid@host-url:/u/usrid/mainfolder/repo.git/

    This initially prompts for my host password. Once that is provided, it proceeds with the clone but ends with the following error. Can you please help with this ?

    git-upload-pack: FSUM7351 not found
    fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
    
    Please make sure you have the correct access rights
    and the repository exists.

    I found an answer to this Question. Looks like this is not yet supported in the latest version of Git for Z/OS.

    From the Documentation –
    Only client mode is supported; in other words, Git for z/OS can clone from, and push to, remote repositories via ssh or https, but cannot be the target of clone and push from other clients.
