Reply with quote

I'm working on developing a utility for our Configuration Management Group. They are non-programmers and have asked for a utility that will take a list of datasets and create backups. The candidate list will only contain Sequential (PS), Partitioned (PDS) or Libraries (PDS-E).

All works fine for Sequential datasets (using IEBGENER), but when I attempt to call IEBCOPY I get the following error.

IEB1099I *** IEBCOPY IS NOT APF AUTHORIZED ***

I've tried calling IEBCOPY via ATTACHMVS, LINKMVS and simple Call, but it always fails. I've never seen this message the description in the manual does not help much. Since the Job has no STEPLIB I'm not sure how or where the non-authorized library is being accessed.

Here is the JCL executing the Rexx Exec.

//S7NOTIFY EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01,COND=(EVEN),
// PARM='SymDsBak'
//*
//SYSEXEC INCLUDE MEMBER=C5SYSEXE
//*
//SYSTSIN DD DUMMY
//SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=&SYSOUT
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=&SYSOUT
//*
//DSLIST DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DCT.ENV.PC05.SYSIN.REL500(DSLIST)
//*
//ABENDAID DD SYSOUT=&SYSOUT
//SYSABEND DD SYSOUT=&SYSOUT
//*
//SNAPIT DD SYSOUT=&SYSOUT
//*
//LOGFILE DD SYSOUT=&SYSOUT

Here is the SYSPRINT output.

did you per chance make the utility that you wrote APF authorized?

any reason not to use DFDSS (ADRDSSU) with something like
Code:
DUMP ... INCLUDE( <your dataset list>) ...


otherwise check with Your support if the IKJTSOxx being used contains something along the lines of

Code:
AUTHPGM NAMES(               /* AUTHORIZED PROGRAMS    */      +
   IEBCOPY                   /*                        */      +
   IEHMOVE)                  /*                        */

and
Code:
 AUTHTSF NAMES(   /* PROGRAMS TO BE AUTHORIZED          */      +
                 /* WHEN CALLED THROUGH THE TSO        */      +
                 /* SERVICE FACILITY.                  */      +
   IEBCOPY       /*                                    */      +
   IKJEFF76)     /*                                    */

I asked about that originally and ADRDSSU is not a viable option as they want to be able to utilize the data in the backups for comparison and other purposes.

I checked the IKJTSOxx member in SYS1.PARMLIB and IEBCOPY are in both the AUTHTSF and AUTHPGM lists. Its also in the AUTHCMD list too.

well... with the scarce info You posted the chances of getting any help are pretty slim ..

tested and working!
( to see what happens during the IEBCOPY You might delete the ALLOC/FREE For SYSPRINT )

good luck

Scarce Info? What additional information would help? I've provided the JCL that executes this and the SYSPRINT Results. Would the actual REXX Exec help?

PostPosted: Mon Jan 30, 2012 10:28 pm    Post subject: Method of Call changes results
Reply with quote

After looking at Enrico's previous post I went back and tried something.

Now if I call IEBCOPY via any of the following methods
Code:


Address LinkMvs "IEBCOPY"
Address AttachMvs "IEBCOPY"
Call "IEBCOPY"



Then I get the

IEB1099I *** IEBCOPY IS NOT APF AUTHORIZED ***

message.

But if I call it using the form

Code:


Address TSO "Call *(IEBCOPY)"



then is succeeds. Now my question is why?

Do not CALL "FOO" and CALL*(FOO) refer to two different instances of FOO?

well... quick and dirty comment

CALL <foo> is a rexx instruction/construct

CALL *(<foo>) is A TSO instruction/construct ( gives an error if coded without quotes
should be "CALL *(<foo>)"

IIRC for apf and parameter passing that' s a lot of difference

Because of system integrity issues, you cannot have a non-APF program call an APF authorized program. Called programs inherit the parent's authorization. Having the rexx processor call IEBCOPY directly causes it to be executed as non-APF.

But apparently, rexx -> Adress TSO -> IEBCOPY works because the "IKJTSOxx member in SYS1.PARMLIB " processing is done. The other flavors of invoking it do not do this additional processing.

Address LinkMvs "IEBCOPY"
Address AttachMvs "IEBCOPY"
Call "IEBCOPY"


This is documented in the REXX Reference manual
Quote:

TSO/E provides the LINK, LINKMVS, and LINKPGM host command environments
that let you link to unauthorized programs on the same task level.

TSO/E also provides the ATTACH, ATTCHMVS, and ATTCHPGM host command
environments that let you attach unauthorized programs on a different task
level.


If you use Address TSO "Call *(IEBCOPY)"
You will use standard TSO interface and the parmlib settings mentioned by Enrico come into play

A quick update, as of z/OS 1.13 IEBCOPY no longer needs to be APF authorised. If you can persuade your sysprogs to install 1.13 your problem will go away.
