Maybe they hardcode a check in there for job user and/or current user instead of relying upon program adoption?
If they do current user they profile handles should fix it.
If they do job user you might have to submit a job or some such thing.

Hi Rob

Yeah the programs attached to the *TCPHTE commands all show USRPRF(*OWNER) and USEADPAUT(*YES)

Hi Rob

thanks for that

I read the same part of the manual you did regarding *ALLOBJ and had
much the same thought. Did they mean it only applies to *ALLOBJ or did
someone forget to do a scan and replace?
Other sections of the manual were explicit that when a program ran
with *OWNER authority, authority checking was done against both
profiles including their special authorities so I concluded that it
should work as expected.
As far as the Host table entry goes, the real requirement is to add a
host table entry for the system itself which I have found is needed
for various reasons.
Good pickup on the PTF, that looks to be much the same issue.
It's still really interesting to me that the startup program appears
to adopt the correct authority but the called program doesn't.

Or you just apply the ptf to fix this

If this PTF only applies to CHGSMTPA then open a new ticket and say
you're
having the same issue with adding a host table entry.

Hi All

I've been working on some small programs that make changes requiring
*IOSYSCFG which are to be run at startup. All the programs work as
expected
except for one thing: adopted authority does not provide *IOSYSCFG
to the user that calls the program.

What I found when I added a call to my program into the program
specified in QSTRUPPGM was that job QSTRUPJD would fail even though
the program making the changes was using adopted authority.

Looking in the Security Reference I can't see anything specific
about *IOSYSCFG not being allowed for adopted authority, but I note
that most
of
the examples relate to object security.

To test I wrote a small program that adds a host table entry:

PGM
ADDTCPHTE INTNETADR('192.168.9.99') HOSTNAME((DELETE.ME)) ENDPGM

I then compiled the program with USRPRF(*OWNER) and made sure the
owner
had
*IOSYSCFG special authority. When I run the program using a profile
without
*IOSYSCFG I get:
TCP8050: *IOSYSCFG authority required to use ADDTCPHTE.

What is even stranger to me is that if I change the program
specified in QSTRUPPGM to USRPRF(*OWNER) and change the owner of
that program to a profile with *IOSYSCFG special authority, the call
to the program
requiring
*IOSYSCFG runs as expected and QSTRUPJD completes normally.

This seems like a bug, but it would not surprise me if there is a
security
exception somewhere that I just haven't found.

Any other theories or suggestions ?
