This message is due to the device being allocated to the wrong subsystem. To correct, this vary the device off and back on to be allocated to the correct subsystem. You should also check the iSeries QCMN subsystem to determine if the device was allocated to it.


Check the communication entries for the XCOM subsystem XCOM2SBS by doing a:


from the command line. Next select the option for communication entries. You should have something like the following:

Device            Mode              Job Description      Library          User          Max active
XCOMDEV    XCOMMODE     XCOM                 XCOM2        XCOM       *NOMAX

where XCOMDEV is the device used for XCOM transfers, and XCOM2 is the library where XCOM is installed. Make sure the user is XCOM as that is where the security violation comes from.

This problem is a result of the device being allocated to QCMN which has a default user of *SYS instead of XCOM. XCOM does not recognize this, therefore the security violation results.

If the communication entry is correct already, then you simply need to vary the device off and back on again to make sure the device is allocated to XCOM2SBS. The device can be varied on/off with the


Once device is varied off, start XCOM2SBS using


from the command line. Once XCOM2SBS is active, use


to vary the device on. Now device should be allocated to XCOM2SBS.
