RE: STRDBG problem



fixed

That second paragraph should have said: "instead of simply removing your authority to the STRDBG
command"

Not: "instead of simply your authority to the STRDBG Command"

Alan,

I don't think what you are asking for exists...

Allowing the debugging of programs on a production system just isn't going
to fly with SOX and/or PCI.

However, do yourself a big favor and make sure that instead of simply your
authority to the STRDBG
command, the admins simply make sure you don't have *CHANGE authority to
the programs in production (
or *USE to the program plus the *SERVICE special authority).

This way, you won't be able to debug programs, but you will be able to
switch a job into debug mode so
you can get diagnostic information from the query engine when running SQL
statements.

Okay - I may have inadvertently opened up a can of worms.
We use MKS implementer for change control and promotion of changed
objects
into our PRODUCTION system.
When we promote CLP and RPGIII programs into PRODUCTION, the compile of
these programs does NOT use OPTION(*SRCDBG). I have submitted a request
to
our systems dept to change this default on both CRTCLPGM and CRTRPGPGM
so
that if any problems occur on PRODUCTION we can use STRDBG to help
ascertain the cause.
To cut a long story short, with SOX compliance, how can it be shown that
a
use of STRDBG does NOT change PRODUCTION data or conversely how can an
audit trail with the use of STRDBG/STRISDB be captured. There has been a
veiled threat that STRDBG (& STRISDB) may be taken away from us on the
PRODUCTION system because of this.
ANY & ALL help will be more than gratefully accepted.
