Issue/Introduction

Trying to set the lpar weight using CA OPS/MVS Hardware Services (HWS) and getting the following return code and reason code for the SETATTR command:
14:34:22 on 03/20/2017:
/>OI HWSTEST (val = 50 in script)
OPM0349T ADDRESSHWS - SETATTR failure. HiSrv RC: 12 ; RSC: X'550032C5'
OPM0997T *-* 8:Address "HWS" "SETATTR ATTR('SGPIPW') ATTRVAL("val") ENTITY(LPAR('SYST'))",
OPM0997T +++    RC(12)
OPSWTO
OPFHWS hwsrc: 12 hwsrs: 550032C5

Running under OPS/MVS server - OPSOSF is address space/acid in Top Secret.
These commands were used to define security:
TSS PERMIT(OPMOSF) IBMFAC(HI$RV.ALL.ENTITIES) ACCESS(UPDATE)
TSS PERMIT(OPMOSF) IBMFAC(HI$RV.ENTITY.GROUP.) ACCESS(UPDATE)
TSS PERMIT(OPMOSF) IBMFAC(HI$RV.USER.AUTH) ACCESS(UPDATE)

I have verified the HISRV parms were set correctly for:
HWISAFPF=HI$RV
HWISAFCL=FACILITY

Cause

The Hardware Interface System (HIS) log indicates that the request failed due to failed access to IBM Base Control Program internal interface (BCPii). OPS to HiSrv Top Secret security rules appear appropriate, however the HiSrv to BCPii security is missing.

Environment

OPS/MVS Event Management & Automation-for JES2 Release 13.0

Resolution

Check the messages in the Hardware Interface System (HIS) log.

We recommend reviewing this documentation to check or set up the necessary security:
CA Common Services for z/OS - 14.1
CA Hardware Interface Service Installation and Setup
