Issue/Introduction

After upgrading CA Datacom/DB 15.1 from version 15.0, the 15.1 MUF startup terminated:

DB00205E - MULTI-USER ERROR - 1078                                       
DB00239I - MUF TERMINATION, START PROGRAM ABEND                          

CCSR010E DBMUFPR U0004 at 0DF50310 LMOD DBSSPPR CSECT DBSSPPR +006310 

Cause

The CA Datacom/DB 15.1 MUF startup options was missing the SECURITY options that were used with 15.0.

Note the informational message in the MUF startup indicating the external security was active: 

DB00231I - EXTERNAL SECURITY LEVEL 05 ACTIVE 

Environment

CA Datacom

Resolution

Determined that 15.0 MUF startup options included the following SECURITY statements that were missing from the 15.1 startup: 

DB01900I - SECURITY DBDTSSR,DBDTRAT,DBDTSCI,DBDTRSR,DBDTSQL,DBDTRCI
DB01900I - SECURITY DBDTSCQ,DBDTRCQ,DBDTRAQ,DBDTSQQ DQ PATHS FOR LEVEL 05

Once these were added, the 15.1 MUF started successfully.
