Question:

A new OMVS GROUP PROFILE record is added for GID(3000). When a SHOW OMVS GROUP(001-999999) is done the GID 3000 does not appear in the display.

 

Answer:

After doing an INSERT of an ACF2 GROUP PROFILE record, in order for the record to display in the SHOW OMVS command the "F ACF2,OMVS" operator command must be issued.

For example:

    ACF 
    SET PROFILE(GROUP) DIV(OMVS) 
    INSERT MYGRP GID(3000) 
    F ACF2,OMVS 
    SHOW OMVS GROUP(001-999999) 
    SHOW OMVS GROUP(001-999999)           
     -- OPENEDITION MVS DISPLAY --         
         -- OMVS GROUPS --                 
           GID        NAME                 
        1             USER01  
        5             IUSER02   
        19            OMVSGRP 
        20            SYSPROG   
        3000          MYGRP       
        99999         TESTG
