Issue/Introduction

Description

When a started task is started and the ACID associated with the started task has a password, the following prompt is received:

*nn TSS7150A SPECIFY PASSWORD FOR STC= ID=acid

What is needed to avoid this prompt?

Solution

Set OPTIONS(4) in the CA Top Secret parameter file and recycle CA Top Secret. It is recommend that all started task (STC) ACIDs be given a password and OPTIONS(4) be set in the CA Top Secret parameter file. OPTIONS(4) will eliminate the TSS7150A prompt for a password when the STC starts, but if someone tries to signon with the STC ACID, that person will need to know the password.
