DB2 for z/OS Security

DB2 for z/OS Security

To use connection user IDs control access to DB2 tables and resources, you must specify the following statement and parameter in the DBMOVER configuration file on the z/OS system:
  • 2 in first parameter of the SECURITY statement
  • RRSAF for the MVSDB2AF parameter
Otherwise, PowerExchange uses the user ID under which the PowerExchange Listener or netport job runs to control access to DB2 tables and resources.
To specify RRSAF for the MVSDB2AF parameter, the Resource Recovery Services (RRS) component of z/OS must be active.


We’d like to hear from you!
