Is the user trying to debug the program listed individually in the dspobjaut? If so that will override the group. What is the value you have in DSPPGM for Program state . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : *USER or *SYSTEM? If it is *SYSTEM you'll need *SERVICE authority.

First, this is on a V5R1 system. In this case the group profile is set using the Set Effective Group API. It did not work with a swap to a profile with the group either. Here is the authority taken from an edtobjaut for the program: *GROUP MYGRP *ALL X X X X X X X X X X The library: *GROUP MYGRP *ALL X X X X X X X X X X The service program: *GROUP MYGRP *ALL X X X X X X X X X X Running STRDBG on the program results in the following messages: strdbg mylib/mypgm Not authorized to debug program MYPGM in library MYLIB. Errors occurred on command. The not authorized message is CPF1910. Running STRDBG on the service program works fine: strdbg srvpgm(mylib/mysrvpgm) Running STRDBG without a program name and then hitting F14, placing a 1 in the add program option, specifying the program works as expected. Hopefully this helps clarify what I did. David Morris >>> firstname.lastname@example.org 03/14/02 02:57PM >>> Joblog please.
