Question:

With z/OS 2.1, should the UNIXOPTS record default user and default group be set to null values?

 

Answer:

Having the values set does not cause a problem in ACF2 as the values are not used for anything.  But if they are set, then any ACF2 REFRESH command wil spit out WTO message:   ACF79482  BPX.DEFAULT.USER values defined - They become obsolete at z/OS 2.1 and above.

To remove the values, enter the following:

TSO ACF

set control(gso)

change unixopts dftuser() dftgroup()

f acf2,refresh(unixopts)
