APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When deleting a user, RACF tries to update for example the
    SYS1.BRODCAST data set. When this fails, other side effects
    might occur. When executing commands against an Offline RACF
    database, other system data sets should not be affected.
    

Local fix

  • Allocate private copy of brodcast dataset to SYSLBC.
