ABS SAVESET OWNER

In ABS V3.2 and V4.1 a SAVE will not run if the originaly user who created the SAVE doesn't exist in the uaf anymore. Recreating that user (UIC doesn't matter) solves that one but I don't want that user back on my system.
Setting the owner and access don't solve this.

Re: ABS SAVESET OWNER

I do not know much about ABS, but if you feel uncomfortable with this user account, how about setting it to DISUSR? Does ABS still work then?

Re: ABS SAVESET OWNER

Why don't modify the owner itself ?
The /owner qualifier specifies the owner of the object
MDMS> set save/owner_name=*****
or look at
MDMS> help set save

Hope this help

Re: ABS SAVESET OWNER

ABS SET SAVE ... /OWNER=... doesn't work, ABS v3 shows in a ABS SHOW SAVE .../FULL a profile containing the username. I asume that's the one to be changed... However the ABS SET SAVE .../PROFILE=... command does'nt exist!

Sequence Option - SEQUENTIAL
Include Spec - DKA100:[*...]*.*;*

ABS> set sav TEST_FERRI /own=titi

Save Request
Name - TEST_FERRI

Re: ABS SAVESET OWNER

Hi,

/OWNER and /ACCESS is not my problem. Stil something fails in running the job referring to the user who created the job. When I give a abs show save.../full I also get output like this:

.....
Profile - Node=NODE07, Cluster=None, Username=JAN
- Privs=(CMKRNL,CMEXEC,SYSNAM,GRPNAM,ALLSPOOL,DETACH,DIAGNOSE,LOG_IO,GROUP,NOACNT,PRMCEB,PRMMBX,PSWAPM,SETPRI,S
ETPRV,TMPMBX,WORLD,MOUNT,OPER,EXQUOTA,NETMBX,VOLPRO,PHY_IO,BUGCHK,PRMGBL,SYSGBL,PFNMAP,SHMEM,SYSPRV,BYPASS,SYSLCK,SHARE,ACNT,ALTPRI)
- Rights List=(MDMS_SYSPRV,ABS_BYPASS)
Owner - NODE07::PIET
Access Control - User=NODE07::PIET
- Access=(READ, WRITE, SET, SHOW, DELETE, CONTROL)
....



The Owner and Access Control can be modifeid but stil the creator stays in the Profile (the lines preceding the Owner and Acces Control). I can't change that and it seems to me that this is the probem preventing me to use this save...

Kind regards, Luitzen

Re: ABS SAVESET OWNER

OK, That work arond seems to be working. So did the recreation of the original user... It gives a lot of work we're not waiting for... And what if the next user leaves the company. I suppose I'll allways have to create a save as SYSTEM....

Kind regards, Luitzen
