Question:

How do you protect volumes if you remove ownership for VOLUME(*ALL*(G))?

 

 

Answer:

To secure the volumes you can own the volumes, specifically or generically.

You can also set the DEFPROT attribute on the VOLUMES resource class.

Just like datasets, volumes can be protected by default via DEFPROT attribute per the doc. Please see the following link:

Then you will need to PERMIT the volume to the appropriate acids.
