Top Secret Top Secret - LDAP WEB ADMINISTRATOR FOR TOP SECRET

Issue/Introduction

Operators need to logon to multiple consoles at the same time. Would we use SIGNM on their ID's or something else? There is a profile MVS.MULTIPLE.LOGON.CHECK in the OPERCMDS class. Is there a Top Secret equivalent of this?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

According to the IBM documentation: When the security profile MVS.MULTIPLE.LOGON.CHECK is defined in the OPERCMDS class, an operator may log on to multiple consoles. Defining this profile allows all operators to log on multiple times. There is no limit to the number of consoles to which an operator may log on. Operators are still required to provide a password while logging on to each console.

The equivalent of this in Top Secret is permitting this to the ALL record:
TSS PER(ALL) OPERCMDS(MVS.MULTIPLE.LOGON.CHECK) ACCESS(READ)
