Security for PowerExchange Listener Commands

Security for PowerExchange Listener Commands

PowerExchange checks PowerExchange-specific resource profiles to determine whether to permit access to PowerExchange Listener commands issued from the PowerExchange Navigator or the DTLUTSK utility. For this security checking to occur, you must specify 2 in the first parameter of SECURITY statement in the DBMOVER configuration file. PowerExchange then uses the MVS System Authorization Facility (SAF) interface to check access to the resource profiles.
By default, PowerExchange checks resource profiles in the FACILITY class. Use the RACF_CLASS parameter in the DBMOVER configuration file to specify a different class for checking security profiles. If you specify a different class, it must be defined in RACF or the security product you use, with a resource name that has a maximum length of 128 bytes.
If you specify 2 in the first parameter of SECURITY statement, you must specify a resource profiles for PowerExchange Listener commands. Otherwise, PowerExchange fails PowerExchange Listener commands issued from the PowerExchange Navigator or the DTLUTSK utility.
