APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Customization temporary directory cannot be shared among user
    IDs - customization failure results.
    
    This APAR involves the customization jobs for z/OS created
    by the zPMT or the zpmt.sh command.
    
    The BBO855* customization jobs introduced in the WebSphere
    Application Server V8.5.5 service stream, and all z/OS
    customization jobs in WebSphere Application Server V9.0,
    create subdirectories in
    
    $TMPDIR/com.ibm.ws390.pmt
    
    to hold customization artifacts.  The com.ibm.ws390.pmt
    directory will be owned by the first user ID that creates it;
    this can cause later customization jobs run under different
    user IDs to fail if they do no have superuser authority.

    ****************************************************************
    Certain customiztion jobs generated by the zPMT application and
    zpmt.sh use a temporary directory for processing. This
    directory
    can not be shared among multiple userids and if attempted,
    customiztions errors can result.
