Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure Admin exploiting the        *
    *                 software to process multi-system data with   *
    *                 zSecure services for remote data access.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: zSecure Admin might display MSGCKR0617, *
    *                      MSGCKR0380, and MSGCKR0381 in cases     *
    *                      where the remote data sources are       *
    *                      defined/allocated with the special      *
    *                      value of asterisk (*) for 'zSecure Node *
    *                      name' (ZSECNODE allocation parameter)   *
    *                      or 'zSecure System' (ZSECSYS allocation *
    *                      parameter).                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When the remote data sources are defined/allocated with the
    special value of asterisk (*) for 'zSecure Node name' (ZSECNODE
    allocation parameter) or 'zSecure System' (ZSECSYS allocation
    parameter), the zSecure Admin might generate a MSGCKR0617 which
    begins with the text "Warning: missing RACF security
    database ...". In cases where an action like 'Copy' or
    'Recreate' is requested against a profile, a MSGCKR0380 which
    begins with the text 'Action for user <user> requested, but
    userid not defines' or a MSGCKR0381 which begins with the text
    'Action for group <group> requested, but group not defined'
    might also be displayed and the generated RACF commands are
    inconsistently generated.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Admin has been modified so that it handles the remote
    data sources defined/allocated with the special value of
    asterisk (*) for 'zSecure Node name' (ZSECNODE allocation
    parameter) or 'zSecure System' (ZSECSYS allocation parameter)
    are handled properly.
