We want to know in a USS environment if we change the file permission, e.g from 777 to 755, will this be captured by ACF2? Is there any reports we can generate?
If the ACF2 GSO UNIXOPTS FSSEC is set a SMF record will be cut for the 'chmod' issued from OMVS.
The GSO UNIXOPTS FSSEC|NOFSSEC field controls the following.
Specifies whether SMF records are to be cut for UNIX system services that control the auditing of changes to the security data (FSP) for file system objects. Some of the functions that modify the FSP are chaudit, chmod, chown, chattr, write, fchaudit, fchmod, and setfacl. The Security Server callable services that control cutting of this SMF Record are R_chaudit, R_chown, R_chmod, clear_setid, and R_setfacl.
'cmod' command issued command from OMVS:
CHMOD 666 scart0.zip

Also note the ACFRPTOM report should be run the the 'DETAIL' parameter otherwise only the R_chmod will be reported on, not the file, path, old permission, new permission etc will be omitted.
