Issue/Introduction

 

Question:

 

When trying the following TSS command to add a pre-defined LABEL to an acid:

TSS add(ScaAcid) seclabel(SYSHIGH) dfltslbl(SYSHIGH)

we receive the following error message:

TSS1403E Specified SECLABEL is not defined - SYSHIGH

SYSHIGH, SYSLOW, SYSNONE and SYSMULTI are pre-defined LABELs, so why does this error occur?

 

 

Answer:

 

The command as entered is correct and will work, only if there is at least one locally defined SECLABEL.

CA Top Secret makes the assumption that if no SECLABELs are defined, MLS is not being used.

After adding a local defined SECLABEL, the above command will work.
