Question:

The *8 messages for the secondary user IDs defined in CA VM:Operator™ are appearing in the SYSTEM window as well as the SECUSER window.  

How do I get rid of them?  

Answer:

 To filter out ALL of these messages from the SYSTEM window, add the following record to your LOGTABLE or SYSTABLE:   

IGNORE MSG * *8
