ENF and CCI Subsystems Established And Used By Top Secret?

Top Secret


There are ENF and CCI subsystems running on the system. Are these subsystems established/started and required by Top Secret?


Release : 16.0


ENF is a part of Common Services and it is used with Top Secret for CICS. (Other Broadcom products might use ENF too, hence why it is part of Common Services.)

CCI (Common Communications Interface) is also part of Common Services. Top Secret uses CCI with CPF (Command Propagation Facility), which is used to keep Top Secret security files in sync by propagating commands and/or password changes from one system to the other(s). 

By default, Top Secret does not start ENF or CCI, however, the Top Secret started task allows an optional AUTOCMDS DD statement that points to a dataset that can have start commands in it. This can be used for started tasks you want started after Top Secret fully initializes. (If Top Secret is restarted, the AUTOCMDS file is ignored.) Sites have the option to start ENF and CCI from the Top Secret AUTOCMDS file, but if these are not specified from the AUTOCMDS file, Top Secret does not start them.
