Reply with quote

Hello,
I am getting an error (reason code = 05190050) when I am trying to execute the command TSO OMVS in the TSO command line.

I figured out that the problem occurs because there is no user directoy existing. I was trying to create a user direcoty in OMVS but I need to get OMVS running first. How can I create a user directory without OMVS?

Contact your security support. I'm not certain about this, but I think you need an OMVS segment for your userid (if your site uses RACF) or the equivalent if your site uses an alternate security product like Top Secret or ACF2. Part of OMVS authorization is a "home directory." Another possibility is the "home directory" was not created. The directory name in your message looks like a "home directory."

As was mentioned, contact your site support group. If your site uses RACF, you MUST have an OMVS segment with a valid home directory. I suspect your home directory does not exist -- which would definitely be a problem for your site support group. The issue could be that /u/msmith does not exist, or it could be that /u/msmith does exist but your TSO user id does not have access to the directory, or it could be that /u does not allow you to access that directory (which would prevent you from getting to /u/msmith) ... etc. Your site support group can sort out the issue(s) and resolve the problem -- there's not really anything you can do unless you have authority to change your RACF (or other security package) profile.

Try to use the ISHELL command specifying your home dir. ISHELL will ask you if you want to create it (even for a homedir I think). Of course this only works if you have the rights to do so.

ISHELL works, well sort-of on "that" system, and gets you into(?) OMVS, need to explore further to see if we can restore it somehow, if you have more experience with it, PM me!

I'm not really a USS person. I had another thought - you might try BPXBATCH like below. Not sure if that requires an OMVS segment though.

//EXEC EXEC PGM=BPXBATCH
//STDOUT DD SYSOUT=*
//STDPARM DD *
sh ;
mkdir /xxx &&
chmod <userid> /xxx
