How to obtain password encryption information and whether PEF installed.
Customer is looking for a way to obtain password encryption information from a VM:Secure user exit.
Here is what you can do to get password encryption information from a VMSECURE userexit:
ADDRESS 'VMSECURE' /* This gets us into the VMSECURE macro primitive environment */
TRANSFER PEF /* VMSECURE TRANSFER primitive */
PULL PEF /* pull the encryption type */
The encryption type will be NONE, REVERSE, FORWARD or DES3.
You will also need to re-do your REXX 'ADDRESS' environment after the call to get the PEF information.
