DB2 for z/OS V9 utility and RACF Lockout
Hi,

Kind of a long shot, but for the second time we had three LPARs basically
stop due to a lockout on RACF database. Both times a DB2 image copy job
was running and hung too, plus it held. This job was an owner (shr) of
SYSZRACF qname for 5 min. this last time two days ago.

Not sure if image copy was culprit or victim. Just wondering if anyone has
seen similar problem. We got out of it by IPLing two non-prod LPARs, which
freed up PROD.

We're on z/OS 1.10 and our RACF is non-datasharing.


Thanks,

Irwin

Hi Irwin
We are v8-NFM and were occasionally getting a similar RACF issue with
our ReOrgs. Our version of z/OS is "some-what" older.

DSNU060I -<SS> DSNUGMAP - USER <User-ID> NOT AUTHORIZED FOR REORG
UTILITY ON DATABASE <DBNAME>
DSNU1027I DSNUGULM - PROCESSING CONTINUES DUE TO OPTIONS ITEMERROR
SKIP
DSNU1033I DSNUGULM - PROCESSING LIST ITEM: TABLESPACE
<DBNAME>.<TSNAME>

Can't prove it, but we seemed to be getting issues on objects that the
batch-user had the authority through a secondary Auth-ID. We granted
access to the Primary Auth-ID at about the same time we had some
maintenance applied and we haven't seen it (the problem) again for about 2+
months now.

Regards,
  Nick CIANCI
