XCOM Data Transport - z/OS

Issue/Introduction

This is the first time we are trying to execute mainframe USS file transfer and received below error.

XCOMM0854E XCOMMVSX  SAF SECURITY FAILED, RV=FFFFFFFF, RC=0000008B, REAS=130100D8

I could see below explanation for reason code 00D8.

00D8 JRNotServerAuthorized


The calling address space is not permitted to the BPX.SERVER Facility class or the BPX.SERVER Facility class is undefined and caller not a superuser (UID=0).

Action: Permit the caller's process to the BPX.SERVER Facility class or make the caller a superuser (UID=0).

Is there a way to give superuser/UID=0 values in XCOM transfer JCL or do we need to engage MF security team to deal with BPX.SERVER facility for  giving access to XCOM started task user id?

 

Cause

The cause of the message is indicated by the meaning of the REAS=130100D8 that is part of message XCOMM0854E

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : XCOM Data Transport for z/OS

Resolution

As per the IBM z/OS Unix reason codes indicate, the Security Admin needs to be engaged to address the permission problem to the BPX.SERVER facility on the system.

There is no way to provide superuser/UID=0 for a transfer and needs to be addressed at the system level.
