Issue/Introduction

When issuing Console commands for an IPL or Recycle of Top Secret the replies from the operator are not sent to the syslog.  Is there a way to send the operator replies to the syslog?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

There is no way to have the reply posted in the sylog but there is a way to know what the reply was by the messages that are posted.

If seen in the log:
TSS9101W ***WARNING*** IPL WILL BE REQUIRED TO REINSTATE PROCESSING
TSS9102A REPLY <Y> TO CONFIRM SYSTEM SHUTDOWN
then Z was the reply.
If doing a temporary shutdown (T), the above 2 messages are not received.

If an invalid reply is issued (like X), the following is seen:
TSS9078I MODIFY OPTION IGNORED after the TSS9072I and A messages.

The reply messages do not show the actual reply but they are in the log in the form of:
IEE600I REPLY TO nnnn IS;SUPPRESSED .

The replies are not actual messages so they are not captured.
