I neglected to state that the error is Not authorized to object OLDFILE in
OLDLIB type *FILE

Subject: Failure to adopt authority



I have to be overlooking something and I'm hoping one of you will see it.



I have an SQLRPGLE program named SCRTEST. It is owned by QSECOFR and is
USRPRF(*OWNER);



In the program it needs to execute the below MOV command which is built on
the fly. FYI - I'm using MOV because I can rename the file and move it to a
different library at the same time.



MOV OBJ('/QSYS.LIB/OLDLIB.LIB/OLDFILE.FILE')
TOOBJ('/QSYS.LIB/NEWLIB.LIB/NEWFILE.FILE')



I have tried calls using both system() and QCMDEXC().



If I run the program with the QSECOFR profile, both versions work. If I run
it with a *USER profile, both versions fail.



What am I missing? Do system() and QCMDEXC() not pass the adopted authority
to the command that they call? If not, is there a different command that
does?
