Cause

Missing entry in SAMT table.

Environment

Release : 5.4

Component : CA-TPX for Z/OS

Resolution

Since there is no entry for this message in the SAMT for ACF2 table, the 'action' will default to <#DFLTMSG> 
Based on the following entry in the SAMT, user is Allowed to proceed.

Return Code/                 Cursor      Suppress  
 Message ID      Action     Position     Message   
  #DFLTMSG         A <ALLOW>                N      
To address this, add the following statement in the ACF2 SAMT table.
#0001072         R <REJECT>               N

This will reject the invalid logon and prevent the present behavior.
PF3 till SAMT SAVED prompt is observed. 

  RELOAD SAMT=ACF2 to dynamically change behavior.
