    New Function to introduce a z/OS Health Checker
    Application health check to identify if anonymous
    users can submit jobs to the system.
    

Problem conclusion

  • IBM suggests that ANONYMOUSLEVEL be set to 3 and
    ANONYMOUSFILETYPEJES be set to FALSE when ANONYMOUS is
    configured
    on the FTP server. Specifying ANONYMOUSLEVEL less than 3 or
    ANONYMOUSFILETYPEJES TRUE allows anonymous users to submit jobs.
