APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When comparing a directory to its predecessor in an ACL-enabled
    VOB, the compare will return no output (as opposed to staring
    that the directories are identical or different) when the user
    performing the comparison is blocked from seeing an entry in
    that directory due to its ACL.
    
    No information regarding the reason behind the compare failure
    is given.
    

Local fix

  • Run the compare as a user who has access to all elements in that
    directory.
