I am trying to load the database for the CA Cleanup for Top Secret product. The load fails with message : ETCL013E Insufficient administrative authority.

Following the explanation of the message, I have specified the option ALLOWSCOPE, but it still fails. What is wrong?


The utility must be run by a user type of ADMINISTRATOR.


The product convention is that you need to be an un-scoped ADMINISTRATOR to perform the db load task.

It has been requested by users to allow a lesser-authorized administrator to perform a download, and for that situation, the ALLOWSCOPE parameter was introduced. This however still requires that the user be an ADMINISTRATOR.

There is no functionality in the product that allows a simple USER - type, non-administrator ACID, to run the db load utility.
