Issue/Introduction

When I run a SELFTEST in NetMaster, message N5U024E is issued in SYSLOG.

110:23:26.88 STC13819 00000080  BPXM023I (NMNET) N5U024E setgid(1000015550) for P667541 failed: 139

                 492 00000084  setgid(1000015550) for P667541 failed: 139 errno2: 0b6d0000  


Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Resolution

The message N5U024E is documented in the Online Help.
It is a generic error indicating that a UNIX function failed.

The Log shows:

STC13819 00000080 BPXM023I (NMNET) N5U024E setgid(1000015550) for P667541 failed: 139  errno2: 0b6d0000 


The 139 is a return code documented in OMVS Messages and Codes. 139 is EPERM - Permission denied.
I would say that NM is not authorised as a BPX.DAEMON to create user authorised environments.
When this happens the USS command runs under the NM region userid. Message N2U202 appears in the Activity Log.





To activate user level authorization,
