Determining which security members are active

During CAS and PAS initialization, the parameter, class, and resource definition members in the BBSECURE parameter library are read to establish the MainView security environment.

Multiple versions of a security member can exist, each having a unique suffix (the default is 00). This section explains how to determine which security members are active for the CAS and PAS.

To identify the CAS security members

  1. On the COMMAND line from within Plex Manager, type CASDEF and press Enter.
  2. In the CASDEF view, place the cursor on the name of the CAS in the CAS Name field and press Enter.

    The CASDEFD view is displayed, as shown in the following figure.

  3. Review the following fields of the Parmlib Suffixes section:

    FieldExplanation
    SepDef SuffixTwo-character suffix of the security parameter definition member (BBMTSSnn)
    SecDef SuffixTwo-character suffix of the security class definition member (BBMTSPnn)
    Common SerDefTwo-character suffix of the security resource definition member for common resources (BBMZRNnn)
  4. To display the contents of a security member, place the cursor in one of the Parmlib Suffixes fields and press Enter.

    Depending on which field you select, one of the following views is displayed:

    FieldDisplayed
    SEPDEF

    Current security parameter definition member for the CAS

    SECDEF

    Current security class definition member that is used for all common, Plex Manager, and product-specific resources

    SERDEF

    Current security resource definition member that is used for common and Plex Manager resources

To identify the PAS security members

  1. On the COMMAND line from within Plex Manager, type CASDEF and press Enter.
  2. In the CASDEF view, place the cursor on the name of the CAS to which the PAS connects in the CAS Name field and press Enter.

    The CASDEFD view is displayed, as shown in the following figure.

    ddmmmyyyy hh:mm:ss ---------- MainView WINDOW INTERFACE (Vv.r.mm) ----------------

  3. Look at the TgtDef Suffix field of the Parmlib Suffixes section.

    The TgtDef Suffix field shows the two-character suffix of the target definition member in the security parameter library that is defined to the CAS. A target definition member specifies

    • A target for a specific product, such as Plex Manager on SYSA

    • The resource definition member for that product

  4. To display the contents of the target definition member, place the cursor in the TgtDef Suffix field and press Enter.

    The TGTDEF view is displayed.

  5. In the TGTDEF view, perform the following steps:
    1. Look in the Product field for the product whose security definitions you want to review.
    2. Place the cursor in the Target Name field for that product and press Enter.

      The TGTDEFD view is displayed, as shown in the following figure.

      ddmmmyyyy hh:mm:ss ----------- MainView WINDOW INTERFACE (Vv.r.mm) ---------------
      COMMAND ===>                                                      SCROLL ===> PAGE
      CURR WIN ===> 1         ALT WIN ===>
      >W1 =TGTDEF====TGTDEFD====MVSB=======*==========(00 BROWSE )======PLEXMGR====D===1
          Target Details:

           UpdUser....... USR1      UpdDate..... ddmmmyyyy
           Deleted?...... No
  6. Check the suffix value in the SerDef Suffix field of the Security Info section.

    The SerDef Suffix field shows the two-character suffix of the resource definition member that is being used for the product that is named in the Product field.

  7. To display the contents of the resource definition member for that product, perform the following steps:
    1. Display the SERDEFL view for the product by entering the following command on the COMMAND line:

      CONtext * product;SERDEFL

      where product is the product name as it appears on the window information line (such as CMF, MVMVS, or MVIP).

    2. In the Member Suffix field of the SERDEFL view, place the cursor on the suffix that matches the value shown in the SerDef Suffix field of TGTDEFD and press Enter.

      The SERDEFOV view is displayed. SERDEFOV is an overview of the default resource definitions for the specified product.
