Subject: Re: S/36 Environment and Security

Hhmm, that makes it a bit more confusing.

I can see when a user signs on without the *S36 environment that they blow
up due to lack of authority to the initial program. When that same user
is changed to *S36, they do call the iniital program and work fine.

Any ideas?

Re: S/36 Environment and Security


Security on the i5 functions the same regardless of whether or not one
uses the 36 environment.

What is different is the library list. Here we have the special (36)
environment set as a system value. But the library list, even if the
environment is set via the user profile, should have two unique
libraries that a non-36 environment normally would not have:
It will probably, also, have QS36F, which is where the i5 wants to put
data files when running in the environment. You can determine this both
by looking at the library list and by running this while in the 36

How does security function for users in the S/36 environment?

I'm working on a box running a S/36 app (GMI), and noticed that a user
without the S/36 fails to sign on when they don't have authority to the
library containing their initial program (which is good), but when that
same user profile is set to Special Environment = *S36, they sign on
no problem.

I haven't worked with S/36 stuff, since, well I was on the S/36, so any
input would be helpful. I did some searches of the available IBM
documentation i could find without turning up anything.
