NetMaster userid was provided  with READ access to IRRDENF program, all works fine.
 
Is this the correct behaviour, i.e. should a security violation (NetMaster not authorized to access IRRDENF program) cause the NetMaster region to abend?

Environment

Release : 12.1

Component : CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Resolution

NetMaster is basically shutting down with that N-268-01 abend because the security system has abended, at that point NetMaster is unable to function effectively as the security system has failed.
