PARMLIB updates for CICSVR IGDSMSxx CICSVR_ZZVALUE_PARM( ) and IGDSMSxx CICSVR_GENERAL_CONTROL( ) Along with their descriptions need to be removed from the table. ARCCMDxx AUTH userid DBA(CONTROL) Allows change accumulation processing to query DFSMShsm for backup information. userid is the ID of the user that executes the CICS VR change accumulation batch job.

To get the list of authorized DFSMShsm commands used by CICSVR, refer to section 5.6.4, "RACF Authorization". Note: (2) The library should be added to the list of APF- authorized libraries in the appropriate PROGxx (or IEAAPFxx) PARMLIB's member.
