The DBA wanted to change the Plan Owner in Post-Install Tasks running the Bind Process Job to be a different User-Id from the User-Id that submitted the Job. Some times this is necessary for security reasons.


To run the "Bind Product Packages and Plans" Post-Install Task with a specific Plan Owner you have to update PLANOWN parameter in HLQ.CDBAPARM(SETUPxx) member and then generate again the JCL, Plans should be bound with this specific User-Id instead of the default User-Id that run the Post-Install Tasks.

You can update the parameter directly in HLQ.CDBAPARM(SETUPxx) member or thru Post-Install Tasks panels.
