Issue/Introduction

DEV1 and PROD2 lpars have multiple $ONWER, as an example, $OWNER(DEV1) with job TESTSRV as READ(*) PREVENT and another $OWNER(PROD2) for jobs TESTPRD  as READ(*) PREVENT.  How would this be specify to ensure that we maintain both $OWNERS resources.  

Environment

Release : 16.0

Resolution

ACF2 does not use the dataset access and resource rule $OWNER field for processing. The $OWNER statement does not grant the specified user special privileges regarding the rule set. ACF2 stores the $OWNER data with the rule set and displays it when you decompile the rule set (similar to the $USERDATA information). ACF2 also stores the $OWNER data in SMF records that can be used to produce reports. Sites can specify up to 24 characters in the $OWNER control statement. 

Based on the above sites can specify both SUPP and PROD in the same rule $OWNER control card. For example:
