Issue/Introduction

During the set up zDMF, the following errors shows up on the Security Panel:

==========================================
Abend 047000 hex occurred processing command 'GZDCKRA '.
==========================================

What is needed to be done in ACF2?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

The IBM documentation on ZDSF for Security (here); says:

The zDMF Monitor uses the “RACROUTE REQUEST=AUTH,STATUS=ACCESS” macro. ACF2 users may experience S047 abends in module ACF9C000 if GZDCKRA is not authorized to issue this macro. The following SAFDEF example can be used as a guideline in providing the Monitor with access to security definitions:

SAFDEFGZD ID(GZDCKRA)
FUNCRET(4)
FUNCRSN(0)
MODE(GLOBAL)
NOAPFCHK
PROGRAM(GZDCKRA)
RACROUTE(REQUEST=AUTH)
RB(GZDCKRA)
RETCODE(4)

Insert a SAFDEF record:

TSO ACF
SET CONTROL(GSO)
INSERT SAFDEF.GZDCKRA ID(GZDCKRA) MODE(GLOBAL) NOAPFCHK PROGRAM(GZDCKRA) RACROUTE(REQUEST=AUTH) RB(GZDCKRA) 

and then to add the SAFDEF to the active system:
