The Question is:
I am creating a subsystem which is written in COBOL using Callable CMS. When
the compiled image has the following ACL
(SUBSYSTEM,IDENTIFIER=CMSTST_SUBSYSTEM,ATTRIBUTES=RESOURCE), CMS informational
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
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.
