While trying to maintain a Datacom Datadictionary entity occurrence, an error is returned, when using a batch DDUPDATE:
DDPPWR0001 PASSWORD REQUIRED
or modifying the occurrence online (via DDOL):
DDOL000248A - PASSWORD REQUIRED FOR MAINTENANCE – PWR
How can this password be found?
Occurrences of Datadictionary entities can be protected against unauthorized maintenance adding a password. This password is stored in Datadictionary itself.
The password can be found running a Datadictionary Index report, using either DDUPDATE or DDUTILTY program, and specifying the override code as in following input card:
The above override code (ovd) is the one specified in the OVRIDE parameter of the DDSYSTBL macro, which is assembled during the Datacom installation to create the DDSRTLM module.
PRIV is the default override code value.
The report has a column PSWD where the password is listed.
