Description

IBM's MVS Initialization and Tuning Reference manual, states in the chapter for SCHEDxx, under PPT:

PASS NOPASS

The program specified on PGMNAME can bypass security protection (password protection and RACF). PASS indicates that security protection is in effect; NOPASS indicates that security protection is not required. PASS is the default.

Jobs that request the bypass-security-protection property will receive the property. ...

Example:

    PPT PGMNAME(DFHSIP) 
    KEY(8) 
    NOSWAP 
    NOPASS 
    NOPREF 

Solution

CA ACF2 does not honor NOPASS. Specifying NOPASS does not allow the program to bypass CA ACF2 security.
