Using GETENTRY w/out VM:Secure as ESM; need GRANT NOPASS authorization

VM:Secure for z/VM


We recently migrated from VMSECURE to RACF - we still use VMSECURE as the directory manager.

We have given groups of users GETENTRY authorization but they get prompted for passwords which we do not want.

How do I allow anyone that has EG GETENTRY authorization to execute it without having to provide a password?



Release : 3.2

Component : VM:Secure for z/VM


You need to add GRANT NOPASS authorization for users you want to enter commands without entering a password. 

See the VM:Secure Without External Security Manager Administration guide under command authorizations;


Make sure you use this documentation set now that you are running with the directory manager only part of VM:Secure.
