Issue/Introduction

Attempts to start XNET as a started task fails.  However, it successfully starts as a batch job. As a STC it encounters RACF errors on datasets.   

Cause

RACF definitions needed to be supplied for the datasets being accessed by XNET.

Environment

Release : 20.0

Component : CA Insight Database Performance Monitor for DB for z/OS

Resolution

Correcting the RACF setup for the UID associated with the XNET STC and the ability to access its datasets proved successful.
