Client reports that while installing Data Content Discovery V2.0.0 he receives the following errors:
Creation of directory /SYSTEM1A/Service/OEM/DCD/V2.0.0/CA failed. Reason: Group is not defined.
Attached Internal Log:
MME0270S - Action completed with an error. Action: getgrnam_r Error code: 163
EDC5163I SAF/RACF extract error. Reason code: 0xB370800 Info: group name: XYWRNG
The following RACF message is observed in the MSMTC (Tomcat ) joblog:
14.36.13 STC00000 ICH408I USER(USERID ) GROUP(G0509915) NAME(SYSPROG, DANNY )
273 CL(FSOBJ )
273 INSUFFICIENT AUTHORITY TO MOUNTSETUID
273 EFFECTIVE UID(0000818472) EFFECTIVE GID(0000000900)
The problem is due to providing an invalid group id / GID to the product base installation wizard. Note this behavior can occur with any product that creates a USS file system and an invalid group is provided.
Any supported release of CSM/MSM and z/OS.
Provide a valid group ID. Client asks how does he determine his group id. There are several ways:
1) Check your OMVS segment of your security record.
2) Issue the OMVS command 'id' :
uid=973(USERID1) gid=8(SYSPROGS) groups=1(OMVSGRP),84(INSTSGRP)
3) Use the OMVS command ls -E in a directory for which you own:
$ ls -E
-rw-rw---- --s- 1 USERID1 OMVSGRP 555765 Feb 4 2016 myfile.dat
The 5th column is the group ID.
Once a valid group ID is provided the install proceeds as designed.
As with a non-CSM install the installer needs to have the BPX permissions to create and mount a file system.
