What would cause TSS7150A SPECIFY PASSWORD FOR STC= message?
There are 2 common instances of the TSS7150A prompt with a started task.
First, if the TSS7150A message is issued at startup, if the started
task acid has a password, make sure OPTIONS(4) is set in the TSS parmfile.
We recommend that all started task (STC) acids be given a password and
OPTIONS(4) be set in the TSS parameter file. OPTIONS(4) will eliminate the
prompt for a password when the STC starts, but if someone tries to signon
with the STC acid, he will need to know the password.
The other instance is the TSS7150A is issued when a user trying to
signon to the application enters the wrong password. In this case
the started task acid needs a MASTFAC added to it pointing to the
facility you want used for the application:
TSS ADD(stcacid) MASTFAC(facname)
The 'facname' should be the name of the facility they want associated
with the started task. This facility will then need to be added to
the users that signon, an attached profile, or the ALL record if everyone
should be allowed access (TSS ADD(acid) FAC(facname).) You can either
setup your own facility (rename a USERnn facility currently not being used)
or use an existing facility. You will need to recycle the started
task to pick up the MASTFAC.
