How to implement Passticket with TPX Generic Resource setup.
A generic applid TPXG was setup that runs with two TPX images.
The following was setup for passticket for TPXG in RACF
RDEF PTKTDATA TPXG SSIGNON(KEYMASKED(thegeneratedkey))
If a one-time passticket is generated and an attempt made to use it to sign onto TPX, why is it rejected ?
Component: TPX for Z/OS
In this case the security system is setup to authenticate TPXG, however the applid being presented to RACF is not the same.
Consider instructing TPX to identify itself to the security system with a different name then its APPLID.
This name can be defined in SMRT(9) - Security Parameters.
The corresponding parameter is 'Alias Name:'.
This name is then passed to the security system instead of the actual TPX APPLID.
For a generic resource named 'TPXG' with instances of 'A01TPXA' and 'A01TPXB'
Insert 'Alias Name: TPXG'. This will allow the Passticket to be generated with the alias name 'TPXG'.
