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.
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?
The cause of the message is indicated by the meaning of the REAS=130100D8 that is part of message XCOMM0854E
Release : 12.0
Component : XCOM Data Transport for z/OS
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.
