Subsystem Identifers, Security, and Messages?

» close window

The Question is:

I am creating a subsystem which is written in COBOL using Callable CMS. When
 the compiled image has the following ACL
 messages are not displayed on the terminal. However, once
I remove the ACL, the messages are once again displayed. How can I correct this
 problem, so messages are displayed within the susystem.

The Answer is :

  The lack of messages would imply a problem accessing the message files,
  potentially caused by a missing image installation of a relevent file
  or possibly by a protection error, or potentially secondary to process
  quota starvation.  Please use OpenVMS security auditing or security
  alarms to monitor file access, and please evaluate the access and the
  installation status.
  Subsystem identifiers are akin to image installation with privilege,
  and have similar requirements around installation of and access to any
  constituent images -- and the message file is one such file.
  Do also ensure that the current CMS ECO kit (CMS V4.1 ECO 4, as of
  this writing, is current) is installed.
