Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure Audit for Top Secret        *
    *                 exploiting SMF reports.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: zSecure Audit for Top Secret displays   *
    *                      incorrect value in the TSS_EVENTDESC    *
    *                      field (newlist type SMF) for SMF events *
    *                      related to USS logging events.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    The TSS_EVENTDESC value reported by the zSecure Audit for Top
    Secret contains an incorrect description of the event reason
    like 'Insufficient CSA or LSQA storage' and alike in cases where
    the SMF record associated with an event is related to the UNIX
    System Services (USS) logging.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Audit for Top Secret has been modified so that the value
    of the TSS_EVENTDESC field (newlist type SMF) reports the RACF
    Callable Service name (with reason code) that is a source of the
    corresponding 'USS logging' SMF record.
