Question:

 

Starting with CA Top Secret r12.0, there is a new control option SECCAHE().

When activated, CA Top Secret creates a data space with a common scope, meaning this data space belongs to the master address space.

If there is an issue with it, how can I get a dump of the data space?

 

Solution:

 

Use the MVS 'DUMP' command to dump the CA Top Secret data space.

 

Please see the example below.

Enter the MVS dump command at the console as follows:

DUMP COMM=('TSS DSP')
xx IEE094D SPECIFY OPERAND(S) FOR DUMP COMMAND
xxJOBNAME=tssc00,DSPNAME=(1.TSSDSP),END

  • 'xx' is the message number
  • 'tssc00' is the CA Top Secret job name.
  • For the DSPNAME= parameter, '1' is the asid number owner of the data space. For the master address space, the asid is '1'.
  • 'TSSDSP' is the name of the CA Top Secret data space.
