Fix Recommendation

Ensure that WRITE and/or greater access to CA1 Tape management STC data sets is limited to System Programmers and/or CA1 Tape management STC(s) and/or batch user(s) only. READ access can be given to auditors.
(Note: The data sets and/or data set prefixes identified below are examples of a possible installation. The actual data sets and/or prefixes are determined when the product is actually installed on a system through the product’s installation guide and can be site specific.)

Data sets to be protected will be:
CA1.TMS* (Data sets that are altered by the product’s STCs, this can be more specific.)

The following commands are provided as a sample for implementing data set controls:

TSS PERMIT(<syspaudt>) DSN(SYS3.CA1.TMS*.**) ACCESS(ALL)
TSS PERMIT(<Tape Management STCs and/or batch users >) DSN(SYS3.CA1.TMS*.**) ACCESS(ALL)
TSS PERMIT(<audtaudt >) DSN(SYS3.CA1.TMS*.**)
