Issue/Introduction

In SYSVIEW 15.0, selecting SCMSYS, System Condition Monitor gives the following message:
SCM$003E Requested information is missing or not available

and gives these messages in the GSS joblog:
SYSVIEW_SERVER has been created for SCMDRIVE                                   
SYSVIEW_REQUEST RC=16 Session: SCMDRIVE Command: LIBS

...

Cause

The userid of the GSS STC is not authorized to execute SYSVIEW commands. 

Environment

SYSVIEW 15.0 & 16.0 - z/OS supported releases - 


 

Resolution

There are a couple of things that must be checked about GSS and SYSVIEW:

1. Is the SYSVIEW r15.0 Loadlib added (as a STEPLIB) to the GSS STC? 

2. Ensure that GSS starts after SYSVIEW.

3. Check the GSS userid:

The MSECU005E error messages tells that the TSTCGSS userid is not authorized to issue the LIBS, PARMLIB, CLIST and LIBVIEW commands. 

The solution is to place the GSS userid in the ADMIN security group, or to create a security group specifically for the GSS userid where
the required authorization can be set for these commands.

The SYSVIEW Security Guide details the setup regarding security groups.
