Netmaster no longer requires UID(0) access.
Our Installing Guide outlines what is needed as a replacement.
First is Setting up the OMVS segment
If you are implementing daemon processing for user level authorization, then the region STC must be a superuser.
For ACF2: To define a non-zero superuser, specify the RESTRICT keyword on the INSERT for the user ID.
For RACF: To define a non-zero superuser, specify TRUSTED(YES) on the RDEFINE for the user ID
For more information about OMVS UID numbers, see the IBMUNIX System Services Planning guide.
All other information is in the Prepare the IBM TCP/IP Server section.
It would be good to review the entire section, but below I have outlined those that talk about Superuser authority.
You may already have them defined correctly, but it's good to verify.
This is the link to the main section
subsection Set Up the zERT Detail Information Service
Configure the user ID assigned to the NetMaster SSI (NMSSI) as follows:
If a profile for the resource is defined, the user ID must have READ access to the SERVAUTH class resource named EZB.NETMGMT.sysname.tcpname.SYSTCPER.
If a profile for the resource is not defined, the user ID must be a superuser.
subsection IPSec Network Management Interface Setup
If you do not use a SERVAUTH class resource to control access, the SOLVE SSI user ID must have one of the following authorities:
An OMVS superuser
Permitted to access to the FACILITY class SAF resource BPX.SUPERUSER
subsection OSAENTA Setup
The user ID assigned to the NETMASTER SSI (NMSSI)
must have READ access to the SERVAUTH class resource named ‘EZB.NETMGMT.sysname.tcpname.SYSTCPOT’ if a profile for the resource is defined; or
must be a superuser if a profile for the resource is not defined.
subsection NMFTP Monitor Access to NMI API SMF Records
This is relevant only if you are running the Netmaster File Transfer Management product.
You can use one of the following methods to grant the NMFTP Monitor region access to Network Management Interface (NMI) API SMF records:
If you want to ensure the highest level of security, define the SERVAUTH profile name EZB.NETMGMT.
SERVAUTH is the recommended method.
