Issue/Introduction



On page  28 of the CA CSM Administration Guide says,
"Assign the following required UNIXPRIV class permissions to the CA CSM user ID:

UNIXPRIV SUPERUSER.FILESYS.CHANGEPERMS ACCESS(READ)
UNIXPRIV SUPERUSER.FILESYS.MOUNT
ACCESS(UPDATE) UNIXPRIV SUPERUSER.FILESYS.PFSCTL
ACCESS(READ) 


The system doesn't seem to have UNIXPRIV SUPERUSER, but rather SUPERUSE w/out the "R":and is it also correct that the RDT defines UNIXPRIV as only 8 characters?:

 

Environment

Release:
Component: MSM

Resolution

That is correct, the UNIXPRIV only allows up to 8 characters in the TSS ADD command. That is why the ownership is SUPERUSE. The TSS PERMIT commands can use up to 39 characters for UNIXPRIV resource classes. These numbers can not be changed by the site. UNIXPRIV is a predefined resource class in CA Top Secret.
