    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: A VERIFY PASSWORD function rejects      *
    *                      passtickets.                            *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Authentication mechanisms such as VERIFY PASSWORD, SIGNON
    USERID PASSWORD, web authentication, web service
    authentication, all reject valid passtickets.
    The passticket is however accepted if the request is retried.
    

Problem conclusion

  • UI22616 UI24127 UI22618 UI24130
    A new fastpath password authentication mechanism was introduced
    as part of the change for RACF APAR OA43999. This new mechanism
    does not support passtickets.
    The code has been changed to retry a fastpath failure using the
    full RACROUTE VERIFYX mechanism with the APPLID parameter to
    validate a passticket.
