RDz drag and copy of members from remote systems is disabled

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

IBM Rational Developer for System z (RDz) 8.5.1 clients are unable to drag or copy PDS members.

Cause

A new feature, Altering Client Functions, was added to RDz 8.5.1 clients that will check the host for the configuration of the access authorization to SAF security profiles. Based on the result, it enables or disables the related function for the user.

Environment

The client must be at 8.5.1 for this feature to exist. The host can be at either 8.0 or higher.

Diagnosing the problem

To diagnose this problem you must check your RACF profile for this type of FACILITY configuration:


FEK.USR.OFF.REMOTECOPY.MVS.sysname


If any users have READ access to such a profile, then the drag and copy functions for that client will be disabled.

Resolving the problem

The setting for the SAF profile is done on the HOST by the security administrator. See the RDz Host Configuration Reference Guide (SC14-7290-3) in Security Chapter under the section titled, "Altering Client Functions" for more information on how to configure the RACF profile.

If you use a different type of security system such as ACF2 then try to write a rule such as the one below where xxxxxxx = sysname:


$KEY(FEK.USR.OFF.REMOTECOPY.MVS.xxxxxxx) TYPE(FAC) ROLESET
ROLE(PGRS) PREVENT
