NOMASK on SERVAUTH Resource Class Considered Generic?

Questions:

When we display SERVAUTH, it has the attribute of NOMASK.

Would it prevent us from using EZB. as a generic resource name, and therefore have to define specific rules such as EZB.STACKACCESS.SYSD.TCIPIP, and EZB.INITSTACK.SYSD.TCPIP ?

Thanks,
Mei

============================================================================

ACCESSORID = *RDT* NAME = RESOURCE DEFINITIONS

RESOURCE CLASS = SERVAUTH
RESOURCE CODE = X'063' POSIT = 558
ATTRIBUTE = NOMASK,MAXOWN(08),MAXPERMIT(064),ACCESS,PRIVPGM
ACCESS = NONE(0000),CONTROL(0400),UPDATE(6000),READ(4000)
ACCESS = WRITE(2000),ALL(FFFF)
DEFACC = READ
TSS0300I LIST FUNCTION SUCCESSFUL

Answer:

If you see NONGENERIC, then you cant use it as a prefix or generic.

NOMASK means you cant use masking characters and that's all.

Prefixing/generic still can be used with NOMASK. If GENERIC attribute doesn't show up the TSS LIST at an attribute, GENERIC is implied.
