Issue/Introduction

A new logonid was created  for TMON with a UID and GID so that it can use USS services.
An error shows in ACFRPTOM that the logonid does not have a complete omvs profile

Failed - User incompletely defined as OpenMVS user 

A SHOW OMVS command was issued and it showed the UID and GID are both defined.

Environment

Release:
Component: ACF2MS

Resolution

8/8:24 for initusp request means that the user is not correctly setup for OMVS processing.
If the user and group profiles are setup correctly and show in SHOW OMVS output as a valid UID and GID that was defined ,
check to see if the user has NO-OMVS.
If NO-OMVS is set on the logonid it means that the user is not allowed to use omvs.
The resolution is to remove NO-OMVS
