I am installing a new version of ACF2 VM. After IPLing I am getting message:ACFAD4694E Logon of xxxxxxxx denied - no default account number. How do I change the VMO OPTS to NOACCTVLD(NO) if I cannot log on?

Introduction:

The ACFAD4694E message can be a result of the VMO OPTS ACCTVLD which defaults to FULL. CA-ACF2 VM is installed using Activator. The last Activator task, M9C0I032: Perform MAINT Tasks, is performed outside of Activator. Step 4 of this task is to generate the CP nucleus, IPL, and update the VMO records. With this first time IPL (with CA-ACF2 VM), reply NOAUTO to the ACF2 start up prompt:

ACFpgm000R Enter CA-ACF2 start options or press enter

Logon to the IPL'ed system using the "maintenance" logonid specified earlier in the install process (default is MAINT, recommended is CAIMAINT).
NOTE: This logonid is required to be in the VMXAOPTS FORCEID list and the NOAUTO list.

At this point you should be logged on with your "maintenance" logonid. Issue the command:

ACFSERVE ENABLE NOAUTO UPDATES

This command starts the service machine to allow updates to the ACF2 database. Note that only the user that issues this ACFSERVE command can actually use the ACF command to update the CA-ACF2 databases in NOAUTO mode.

If this is the first time you are installing CA-ACF2 (or migrating from a earlier release), review all of the VMO record options to determine the settings that you should use.

Question:

I am installing a new version of ACF2 VM. After IPLing I am getting message:ACFAD4694E Logon of xxxxxxxx denied - no default account number. How do I change the VMO OPTS to NOACCTVLD(NO) if I cannot log on?

Answer:

values.

Be sure to check for the following field values. The default settings have a potentially negative impact on your system:

OPTS ACCTVLD(FULL)
OPTS MODE(ABORT)
OPTS IUCVVLD
OPTS VMCFVLD
OPTS DSPVLD
CMDLIM MODE(ABORT)
DIAGLIM MODE(ABORT)

Invoke the ACF2 VM ACF command processor and make the desired changes.

Example of commands to change the values for these records:

ACF
SET CONTROL(VMO)
CHANGE OPTS MODE(QUIET) ACCTVLD(NO) NOIUCVVLD NOVMCFVLD NODSPVLD
CHANGE CMDLIM MODE(QUIET)
CHANGE DIAGLIM MODE(QUIET)

For any options that are not turned off or in QUIET mode be sure that any access rules, command models, and command limiting rules required for testing based on the selected VMO settings are in place before continuing.

After finishing the preceding steps, issue the following command to shut down the service machine:

ACFSERVE DISABLE NOAUTO UPDATES

Complete the remaining tasks for step 4, and continue on with the installation and testing process.
Note: This user also needs to be in the VMXAOPTS FORCEID list and the NOAUTO list.
