How can I verify that I am running with external security in CA Ideal?
If you need to verify whether or not you are using external security, in CICS, issue the following command:
DBUT M=SC00OPTS +E7
You will either see a D5 (N) or E8 (Y)
You can get the same result in CA Ideal. On the CA Ideal command line, issue the command:
@I$SCF PGM=SC00OPTS OFF=E7
Another offset in SC00OPTS that could be helpful to you is QCODE.
To check QCODE's in each of your CICS region, issue the following command:
In CICS: DBUT M=SC00OPTS +8
In CA Ideal: @I$SCF PGM=SC00OPTS OFF=8
