DDCS/6000 with Cobol - PMR 8X804 B004
IBM Systems Engineer has issues creating DDCS/6000 applications
connecting to DB2/MVS. Applications run on the 6000 but ask for
data from DB2/MVS. We have figured out how to catalog the DB2/MVS
database with Authentication=Client so that the programmer logs
on to AIX and DDCS accepts that the programmer is
authenticated, and the programmer is not asked for additional
DB2/MVS password when they connect to the DB2/MVS database.
(xmenu item AB8096)
The S.E.'s customer now complains that the Micro Focus precompiler
forces the programmer to connect with an explicit userid
Q: Can packages be built by a user without requiring a password at
compile time? If so, how?
Can packages be executed by a all user without requiring a password?
If so, how?
Entered PMR 8x804 B004.
Response from PMR 8x804 b004:
You shouldn't have to supply userid and password directive if your
security is set as follows:
1. For LOCAL AIX clients connecting to the host via DDCS/6000
AT THE DDCS/6000 WORKSTATION:
Authentication = CLIENT when cataloging host db, so the user name
and password validated at the workstation
when you logon.
APPC security = SAME indicating security has already been checked
and only user name is forwarded to the host db.
2. For REMOTE CLIENTs using APPC or TCP/IP to connect to DDCS/6000 and
access a host db
AT THE REMOTE CLIENT MACHINES (APPC-CAE/2 or CAE/6000)
(TCP/IP-CAE/6000, CAE/2, CAE/DOS)
Authentication = CLIENT when cataloging the db cataloged
on the DDCS/6000 gateway
userid and password will be checked at the client
and only userid will be passed to DDCS/6000 gateway. gateway
Security = SAME (for applicable clients)
AT THE DDCS/6000 GATEWAY:
Authentication = CLIENT (only userid will be forwarded to host db)
NOTE Authentication is specified when you catalog the db.
For DDCS/6000 to host connection, APPC security is specified in
CATALOG CPIC NODE.
For network security for connections from clients to the DDCS/6000
gateway, it can be specified using SMIT.
Conversation level security can be specified thru the connection profile
s and the TPN profiles,
To use CLIENT/SAME for DDCS/6000:
The logon ID must be in system group
2/ The USERSECURITY column of SYSIBM.SYSLUNAMES has to be A (normal)
3/ in the VTAM APPL ID, SECACPT=ALREADYV (normal)
I have tried with the following cobol compile:
cob -vDD -CSQLBIND"test1.BND" SQLINIT SQLDB"db2host" SQLDB2 SQL"IBM"
