Is there anything that needs to be done when using Top Secret for DB2 (TSSDB2)?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : Top Secret for DB2

Resolution

The IBM fix is related to native DB2 fixing a problem passing information to the security exit.  TSS for DB2, (and ENF) gather it's own needed information to work properly. Top Secret already does a check for Bindagent. Nothing is needed for Top Secret for DB2 (or ENF).
