Issue/Introduction

We are finding that users DistIDs have been reverting to a default of their TSO userid.

We switch to the desired DistID but later it is changed back to their default TSO userid.

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA View

Resolution

According to the documentation on the View SARBCH /DEFUSER update function, if you omit the DISTID=... field in an update, DISTID=UserID will be used. 

As the client has been using a batch SARBCH function, using the /DEFUSER function, it is likely that the DISTID=... field was omitted, assigning UserID to the DISTID field.
