Question:  

I am getting excessive ACF01137 LAST SYSTEM ACCESS date/time messages for an online address space. Is there any way to suppress these messages?

Answer: 

The "ACF01137 lid LAST SYSTEM ACCESS hh:mm - date FROM src" message is an informational message that appears each time a logonid is logged on. There are a few options that can be utilized to help suppress the messages.

There are two options that exist to allow a site to suppress the "ACF01137 lid LAST SYSTEM ACCESS hh:mm - date FROM src" message.

  1. The GSO OPTS NOTIFY|NONOTIFY is a global setting for ALL LOGONIDS, that controls the display of the ACF01137 message. NOTIFY specifies that the message is displayed at logon time, NONOTIFY suppresses the message. The default is NONOTIFY. 

  2. The LOGONID field NO-STATS|NONO-STATS will control the suppression of the ACF01137 message on a successful full validation MUSASS logon request for users logging on within the region. E.g. If a user logs on to a CICS region and the region LOGONID has NO-STATS and MUSASS the messages ACF01134(YOUR PASSWORD WILL EXPIRE ON date ) and ACF01137 will be suppressed. This is a logonid specific setting, not a global setting like the GSO OPTS NOTIFY|NONOTIFY setting.

Note: If the last access date is less then the current date, an SMF record is written and the logonid is updated in the database (i.e. one update only per day). The ACF01134 and ACF01137 messages are still suppressed.

 

Additional Information:

Details on the LOGONID field NO-STATS|NONO-STATS field and the GSO OPTS NOTIFY|NONOTIFY field can be found in the CA ACF2 for z/OS Administration Guide in Chapter 3: Maintaining Logonid Records section 'Logonid Record Fields' and Chapter 14: Maintaining Global System Options Records section 'CA ACF2 Options Specifications (OPTS)' respectively.
