Issue/Introduction

Description:

You are trying to connect a RACF userid to the CAHCHECK started task. The manual states there is no need but your security department wants you to define it.
So you added a userid in the started class, but after the ipl of your testsystem you cannot see any indication the userid is used by the CAHCHECK task.

Solution:

Here is the solution provided by IBM. You have to create a userid then, to add it to the STARTED class in RACF, follow these instructions:

ADDUSER CAHCHECK NAME('HEALTH CHECKER USER')
ALTUSER CAHCHECK NOPASSWORD TRUST

RDEFINE STARTED IEESYSAS.CAHCHECK OWNER(BIGROUP1) AUDIT(FAILURES(READ)) UACC(NONE)

RALTER STARTED IEESYSAS.CAHCHECK STDATA(USER(CAHCHECK))

Now you will see all access be logged in RACF.
