Issue/Introduction

Problem:

Using VM:Scheduler with the USEREXIT PASSWORD that calls DMSPASS to validate the requesting userid.

The *RJECMD command in the VM:Batch job is rejected with error message

VMHSYS170E Spool file nnnn rejected; password rejected by installation exit 

Environment:

z/VM 6.3

RACF

Resolution:

RACF stores logon passwords in a location other than the CP online directory, so an RJEPSWD user exit is required by VM:Batch to validate the RJE commands.

We provide a sample RJEPSWD user exit, VMHUPSWD XVMBATCH, which is located on the sample disk, SAMPZ 2C2 F, accessed on VMANAGER through

VMFSETUP ZVMH014A VMBATCH (LINK 

You will need to enable the exit with the USEREXIT RJEPSWD record in the VMBATCH CONFIG file.
