Question:  

I am setting up ACF2 SESSION Profile Data Records for IBM's VTAM Enterprise to validate the APPCLU resource, how do I setup a non expiring key interval for the session key?

Answer: 

The KEYINTVL(keyintvl) field of the SESSION Profile Data Record specifies the number of days from 1 to 32767 that the session key is valid.

The ACF2 SESSION profile data records define the security key to be used, expiration dates, and type of conversation security to be used. The KEYINTVL(keyintvl) field of the SESSION Profile Data Record specifies the number of days from 1 to 32767 that the session key is valid. KEYINTVL is not required. If it is not specified, or if KEYINTVL (0) is specified then there is no expiration of the SESSKEY.

For Example:

     SET PROFILE(APPCLU) DIVISION(SESSION) 
     INSERT sessrec SESSKEY(c1c3c6f2acf2) KEYINTVL(0) VERIFY   
 
     Is equivalent to:
 
     INSERT sessrec SESSKEY(c1c3c6f2acf2) VERIFY      

In both examples the non expiring key interval is established for the session key.

Additional Information:
More details on the  KEYINTVL(keyintvl) field of the SESSION Profile Data Record can be found in the CA ACF2 for z/OS Administration Guide, Chapter 16: Maintaining Profile Records section 'APPCLU Profile Records'.
