ACF2ACF2 - z/OSACF2 - MISC
CEA ABENDS with S1D0 after z/OS 2.3 with ACF2. Previously CEA had a error message that UNIX services failed.
Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS
CEA requires the use of OMVS. Running the ACFRPTOM report showed this entry:
SERVICE USERID GROUP UID GID SAF RC RSN DATE TIME JOBNAME SOURCE SYSID CPU SECLABEL ..... initUSP CEA * 0 99999999 0 0 0 mm/dd/yy yy.ddd hh.mm.ss CEA PRD1 PROD
The group showing the * means that ACF2 was not available to gather the information. ACF2 needs to start before CEA. The recommended procedure is to use CAISEC00 for starting ACF2. In that way, security will start before other processes in the IPL.
