Cause

This is an External Security authorization problem. The Netmaster region STC userid does not have the correct authorization to kill the SYSLOGD process.

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Resolution

Add READ access for SUPERUSER.PROCESS.GETPSENT and SUPERUSER.PROCESS.KILL to the USS privileges of the external security system for the Netmaster userid so that it can restart SYSLOGD during region initialization.
