Issue/Introduction

The following errors are occurring with Common Event Adapter (CEA):

BPXI004I OMVS INITIALIZATION COMPLETE 
CEA0105I COMMON EVENT ADAPTER IS RUNNING IN MINIMUM MODE. 508 
UNIX SYSTEM SERVICE DUBDFLT ENDED WITH RETURN CODE 0000009C 
REASON CODE 0B0C00FC 
CEA0111I COMMON EVENT ADAPTER IS RUNNING IN MINIMUM MODE. UNIX SYSTEM 
SERVICES ARE NOT AVAILABLE. 
CEA0019I COMPONENT TABLE LOAD FAILED. RC=FFFFFFFF  RSN=04400032 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

To define the ACID to be associated with the CEA started task, use the following TSS CREATE command. If the CEA acid is already defined, skip the TSS CREATE command. 

TSS CREATE(CEA) TYPE(USER) NAME('COMMON EVENT ADAPTER') DEPT(dept) – 
FAC(STC) PASSWORD(xxxxxxxx,0) 

All started task (STC) acids should be given a password and OPTIONS(4) be set in the TSS parameter file. OPTIONS(4) will eliminate the prompt for a password when the STC starts, but if someone tries to signon with the STC acid, he will need to know the password.

Once defined, the CEA acid needs an OMVS segment, READ access to SYS1.PARMLIB, and the procname for CEA should be added to the STC table with acid CEA:

TSS ADD(CEA) UID(nnn) GROUP(group) DFLTGRP(group) 
TSS ADD(CEA) OEFILEP(1024) 
TSS PER(CEA) DSN(SYS1.PARMLIB) ACC(READ) 
TSS ADD(STC) PROCNAME(CEA procname) ACID(CEA) 

The CEA acid will also need access to any resources accessed at the startup of the region.
