symbolic links in OMVS for unix directories.
lib -> $VERSION/lib
etc -> $SYSNAME/etc
bin -> $VERSION/bin
Rules existed for both $KEY(/etc) and $KEY(/SYS1)
Someone accessing /etc would actually be accessing /SYS1/etc (on LPAR SYS1).
This would be hitting $KEY(/SYS1) and should not be using the $KEY(/etc) rule.
When $KEY(/etc) TYPE(HFS) was deleted violations occurred for these resources.
RHFS-/etc.Vendor.ibm.Apache.V9R0.bin.httpd *VIO RHFS-/etc
RHFS-/etc.Vendor.lrs.vmcf.ihsa.#.plugin *VIO RHFS-/etc
When displaying the symbolic link it appeared as though the link information was no longer available
lrwxrwxrwx 1 BPXOINIT OSS 12 Jun 16 2015 etc -> $SYSNAME/etc
However after deleting the $KEY(/etc) the link looks like this.
lrwxrwxrwx 1 BPXOINIT OSS 12 Jun 16 2015 etc
