UID(0): WHOHAS says it has it, LIST says not

  • 1.  UID(0): WHOHAS says it has it, LIST says not

    Here's a puzzle:  I do WHOHAS UID(0) and get a list of ACIDs.  Some of them are entirely numeric, so I check curiously.  The ACIDs exist—they're customer IDs, no way they should have UID(0)—but the LIST command doesn't show that they have an OMVS segment, much less UID(0).

     

    I experimentally do REM(acid) UID(0) and TSS says the remove is successful—it doesn't complain that the ACID didn't have UID(0) in the first place.  But when I do the WHOHAS again, the same ACID is still listed there.

     

    Can anyone divine what's going on here?  I know Unix hardly at all, but I have a vague notion there's maybe a system file somewhere that specifies extra superusers...?  Reaching for straws, I know.  But I want to investigate this; it sounds like an exposure.

    TSS ADD(xxxxx) UID(0)  then you need to remove it again :

    TSS REM(xxxx) UID(0)                                    

    Then see if it still shows up in a TSS WHOHAS UID(0)

    Hi Bob,

     

    There are two Technical documents that will explain and walk you through correcting broken pointers which is what you have.  They are TEC1654807 & TEC599191.

     

    Enjoy!!
