ACF2 ACF2 - z/OS ACF2 - MISC

Issue/Introduction

Trying to use AUTOIDOM record sharing the ACF2 databases.  How can it be setup to use unique UID and GID numbers across the shared systems?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

In a shared CA ACF2 database environment, the AUTOIDOM record must be shared (Masked SYSID for GSO AUTOIDOM) in order to ensure unique UID auto assignment.

SET CONTROL(GSO) SYSID(****)
INSERT AUTOIDOM ASSIGNU ASSIGNG UIDSTART(1000) UIDEND(90000) GIDSTART(1000) GIDEND(90000)

Then the AUTOIDOM record needs to be refreshed or an IPL done on each system.  To make the change dynamic without an IPL, issue the console command from each system sharing the database:

F ACF2,REFRESH(AUTOIDOM)

Additional Information

For more information on AUTOIDOM or the fields included, refer to the ACF2 manual.
