Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
U2000102 Error when calling the function 'setreuid'

Transfer from/to USS (HFS) file system with z/OS Agent doesn't work properly in some cases switching between FT and agent user. Function call seteuid()/setegid() may fail causing abnormal termination of file transfer. Sequence of effective user switch may wrong, looks that agent doesn't have enough authority.
