    Have you ever had a problem logging on to CA View and the MODE assigned to your userid
    is incorrect?  No matter what you do, does the mode always revert back to the incorrect
    Mode? 

    It sounds like the SARUSRTB table may be linked into the load library and overridding
    the Mode that you set for the userid.  SARUSRTB is a control table used by the default
    SARPRFUX (PROFILE USER EXIT). This exit is used to set the DEF USER values.

    Here is an example of the comments in the exit and the sample rule which sets the
    profile information for USERX.  

    *                                                                 
    *        SAMPLE USRTB OVERRIDE TABLE. THIS SAMPLE IS FOR DEMO     
    *        PURPOSES ONLY.                                           
    *                                                                 
             SARUSR USERX,DIST=USERX,DISTMSK=USER*,ACCESS=YYYYY,MODE=ALL       
             DC    X'FF'         END OF TABLE MARKER    
    *                                                                  
    *        END OF SAMPLE TABLE                                       
    *                                                                  
             END

    2. Issue ISRDDN command option 6 on the ISPF menu and press Enter.
    3. On the next screen, type LINKLIST on the command line and press Enter.
    4. Finally type M SARUSRTB con the command line and press Enter.
    5. In the box that comes up, overstrike NO with YES and press Enter.
