Issue/Introduction

Customer explained the problem:

This is a new setup we did recently, and we are trying to receive a mainframe file on our AS/400 using TCP/IP XCOM.

We
have given the valid user ID and password to the mainframe team to send me us the file
but it
did not work. This is

from the XCOM log:

XCM7050 ... Message . . . . :    Error while checking password for user user_ID.


Note: user_ID
is masked out from the original.

Cause

-

Environment

OS : IBM i

Release : 11.0

Component : CA XCOM Data Transport for AS/400 i5/OS

Resolution

We found this information on a past case in our DB--sent to customer to review:

-

Definition:

XCAS4R to XCMVS successful. XCMVS to XCAS4R via TCP/IP fails with XCM7050 error while checking password

and CPF2204 User Profile &1 Not Found.  While USERID and PASSWORD are supplied, transfer runs

under the USERID that started XCOM. This USERID has TOTAL authority and access.

 

Resolution:

The AS/400 typically has all USERIDs in UPPERCASE. Placing the USERID in UPPERCASE resolved

the security error.

-

 

Customer replied that they acted on our remarks and the transfer worked out.
