We're on V6R1 and I'm on iNav V6R1. I linked my SST profile with my O/S
profile and iNav still prompts for an SST profile and password when
needed.

I'm not as concerned about an SST profile linked to a SysAdmin profile
as I would be about an SST profile linked to a group profile. I suspect
that could have some unintended consequences.

When I saw the term "service tool interface" iNav was my first thought
also, could this be HMC related?

I guess if you're using something like iNav to add disk drives or
something, why have it stop and prompt you for a SST user id and
password?
That would be one nice area to just link it up.

I can't see it being any more dangerous than everybody using one SST
user id of QSECOFR and telling them all the SST QSECOFR password.

RE: SST user profiles - Linked user profile






From the help on option 9:

Links the service tools user ID to a operating system user profile.
This allows the operating system user profile to
have the privileges of the service tools user ID when using a service
tool interface.

If the linked user profile is a group profile then each member of that
group will be allowed the privileges of the service tools user ID.


Typing *NONE in the link field will remove any linking associated with
the service tools user ID.

I'm not totally sure what all that means, specifically what is "a
service tool interface?" Could this be dangerous?
