Authorizations for command processing are those authorizations that do not relate to any one command. They refer instead to the way processing takes place for different commands.
User can use all commands.
  • *ALL
    User can use all commands.
  • *ANY
    User can use all commands.
  • ANYPOOL
    User can allocate minidisks in any existing subpool.
  • ANYSKEL
    User can create a user ID using any existing skeleton file.
  • CACHED
    User can change the caching attribute of a minidisk: create or scratch a minidisk on a cached device or change an existing minidisk to or from a cached device.
  • MOVERO
    User can move a minidisk that has read-only links.
    When you move a minidisk that a user has linked read - only,
    VM:Secure
    holds the space the minidisk occupies until you use the RECLAIM command against the minidisk.
    VM:Secure
    maintains the minidisk by redefining it to the
    VM:Secure
    directory entry with a virtual address in the range 600 to 6FF. For more information, see the RECLAIM Command in the section "Command Reference" in the
    Reference
    .
  • NOCOPY
    User can move a minidisk without actually moving the data on that disk.
  • NOFORMAT ADD
    User can add a minidisk without formatting it.
  • NOFORMAT DELETE
    User can delete a minidisk without formatting it.
  • NOFORMAT MOVE
    User can move a minidisk without formatting it.
  • NOFORMAT
    Combination of NOFORMAT ADD, NOFORMAT DELETE, and NOFORMAT MOVE authorizations
  • NOPASS [
    command
    ]
    Skips the check of the logon password when a user issues
    command
    . The user must be separately authorized for the command.
    If you use the NOPASS special authorization and do not specify
    command
    , that user ID has NOPASS authorization for all the commands you authorize that user ID to use.
  • OVERRIDE NEWUSER
    User can override rejection by the NEWUSER exit when creating a user ID, or to override the NEWUSER exit’s choice of manager name.
  • SFSADMIN
    User can configure
    VM:Secure
    for SFS.
The following examples show how to use a few of the command processing authorizations.
Example:1
Authorize users in the SYSPROGS list to issue any command:
LIST *SYSPROGS MAINT VMANAGER JOE GRANT *ALL TO SYSPROGS
Example:2
Let the directory managers enter any
VM:Secure
command without being prompted for their logon password:
GRANT NOPASS TO *DIRMGRS
Example:3
Allow MAINT to allocate minidisks in any existing subpool:
GRANT ANYPOOL TO MAINT
