Question:

Getting a security violation for acid RDR*TERM with a JESSPOOL resource. Where is RDR*TERM coming from? It doesn't exist on the security file.

Answer:

With CA Top Secret Control Option DEFACID(RDR*TERM), the acid reader name will be used for jobs that don't have an acid.

The reader name needs to be defined as an acid and authorized appropriately.

Acid RDR*TERM will be used if the reader name is not defined as an acid.
