Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: Users of zSecure Admin/Audit exploiting the  *
    *                 "System settings and software levels" report *
    *                 (newlist type SYSTEM) and users of zSecure   *
    *                 Audit compliance testing framework           *
    *                 exploiting STIG compliance rule AAMV0030.    *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: zSecure Admin/Audit generates an        *
    *                      incorrect value for the LNKAUTH CARLa   *
    *                      field (newlist type SYSTEM) causing the *
    *                      STIG rule AAMV0030 to be non-compliant. *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION: Apply the PTF provided.                      *
    ****************************************************************
    When the LNKAUTH system initialization parameter is set to
    APFTAB, zSecure Admin/Audit reports the LNKAUTH field value
    (newlist type SYSTEM) incorrectly as 'Yes' when a dynamic link
    list is defined after an IPL. This also causes the STIG
    compliance rule AAMV0030 (LNKAUTH=APFTAB) to be non-compliant.
    

Problem conclusion

  • zSecure Admin/Audit has been modified so that it correctly
    reports the LNKAUTH system initialization parameter.
