Issue/Introduction

 

Summary:

 

We are using the PPT resource class to protect some load modules and dynamic routines in our CICS regions.

We are using the PRIVPGM and the PPT in production and it works successfully, but in the test environment it doesn't work.

Users are able to access unauthorized programs regardless of the PPT and PRIVPGM security.

 

Intructions:

 

Please issue a:

TSS LIST(RDT) RESCLASS(PPT)

On the LPAR where PRIVPGM doesn't work.

Does the PPT class have the MASK attribute set?

If yes, changing MASK to NOMASK will resolve the problem.

TSS REP(RDT) RESCLASS(PPT) ATTR(NOMASK)

 

MASKing is not supported by PRIVPGM.

 

Additional Information: 

 

If PPT permits were done while the MASK attribute was set, please TSS REVOKE all permits for the PPT resource class and re-PERMIT it again, after the NOMASK attribute has been set.
