Fix Recommendation

The IAO working with the systems programmer will ensure the Facility Matrix Table for CA 1 Tape Management is proper defined using the following example:

*****CA1
FAC(USERxx=NAME=CA1,PGM=TMS,ID=nn,ACTIVE,NOASUBM)
FAC(CA1=NOLUMSG,NOSTMSG,NORNDPW,NOWARNPW,MODE=FAIL)
FAC(CA1=LOG(SMF,INIT,MSG,SEC9),UIDACID=8,LOCKTIME=000)

Check Contents

Refer to the following report produced by the TSS Data Collection:

- TSSCMDS.RPT(FACLIST) - Preferred report containing all control option values in effect including default values
- TSSCMDS.RPT(TSSPRMFL) - Alternate report containing only control option values explicitly coded at TSS startup

If the CA 1 Tape Management Facility Matrix table is defined as stated below, this is not a finding.

FACILITY DISPLAY FOR CA1
INITPGM=TMS id=xx TYPE=099
ATTRIBUTES=IN-USE,ACTIVE,SHRPRF,NOASUBM,NOABEND,MULTIUSER,NOXDEF
ATTRIBUTES=NOLUMSG,NOSTMSG,SIGN(M),INSTDATA,NORNDPW,AUTHINIT
ATTRIBUTES=NOPROMPT,NOAUDIT,RES,NOWARNPW,NOTSOC,LCFCMD
ATTRIBUTES=MSGLC,NOTRACE,NOEODINIT,IJU,NODORMPW,NONPWR
