Issue/Introduction

When exiting the "Maintain User Profiles" (211) in the IBM interactive interface after adding a user, the following occurs:

0S02I A CANCEL OR CANCEL ALL MACRO WAS ISSUED 

0S00I SUB DTSUTIL CANCELED          

0S07I PROBLEM PROGRAM PSW = 070D0000 803F5C6A

To reproduce:

1)  From initial Interactive Interface (II) screen enter '211'

2)  Enter '1' (Add) on line with SYSA (install administrator)

3)  Enter a userid (4-characters) and take the defaults (user is already defined to Top Secret)

4)  PF3=END to process the add

5)  The II returns that the add was processed (sorry don't have the exact text because the abend screen is displayed immediately)

6)  The abend messages are displayed

7)  The initial II screen is displayed with:
RETURN CODE X'¢¢¢¢¢¢¢¢' FROM ICCF IS UNEXPECTED AND CANNOT BE PROCESSED. 

SP10 was recently applied to CA-Top Secret.

 

 

Environment

Release : 3.0

Component : Top Secret for z/VSE

Resolution

When using multiple 3rd party products there could be a lack of GETVIS in the interactive partition. In this case the default was 48K and this was insufficient for the products to coexist. The system default is 48K if there is no OPTION GETVIS value is specified in ADM$USR9.

In this case we were in an active ICCF partition with Top Secret and other 3rd party products.

"VSE/ICCF sublibrary 54 member ID "ADM$USR9"...
A "&/OPTION GETVIS=n" statement must be added following the "&/LOAD DTSUTIL" statement...
"n" must be increased above the default of "48"...  In our case, we used "96"..."

Example:

/INP                                       

* USER PROFILE MAINTENANCE DTSUTIL OUTPUT FI

/SAVE &&&&VARBL1                           

&&&&IF &&&&RETCOD NE *LIBRARY &&&&GOTO CREAT

&&&&TYPE *LIBRARY DIRECTORY FULL           

&&&&EXIT                                   

&&&&LABEL CREATE1                          

/INP                                       

&/LOAD DTSUTIL                             

&/OPTION GETVIS=96                         -à>> Change from 48 to 96
