Issue/Introduction

A new MVS system is being planned.  Is there a set of default databases that can be used with ACF2?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

ACF2 does not come with default databases as the logonid database is almost always customized for a shop, which then would make the other databases unusable based on the UID string that is built.  In the ACF2 documentation, there is a section on "Create CA ACF2 VSAM Databases"  that explains what is needed for placement on the system, catalog information, size, etc., and also points out a job to create the VSAM files called DEFINE, and a job that creates a default logonid that has SECURITY and ACCOUNT privileges called INITIAL.
