Description:

Received a "Modify Successful" message, but the data entered in the Comment field was not saved.

The Comment field was blank.

What is the Comment field used for?

Solution:

The data specified in the Comment field is stored in the TSS command record on the CA Top Secret Recovery File as a comment for the TSS command.

For example:

Update acid USERA's INSTDATA field with '123-45-6789' and specify '123-45-6789' in the Comment field, TSSAUDIT CHANGES report would display the record as follows;

                           ----- LISTING OF CHANGES TO SECURITY FILE -----
