Introduction: 

Restore BFS data through the end user screens.

 

Question: 

What does the VM:Backup service virtual machine need to restore BFS data through the end user screens ?

 

Answer: 

The CA VM:Backup service virtual machine must be authorized to identify the APPC/VM resource.  

An IUCV *IDENT directory statement in the service virtual machine directory entry provides this authorization. The form of the statement depends on whether CA VM:Backup is in a SSI environment.

 

Non-SSI:  Local authorization:

In a non-SSI environment, limit the server to being used from only the local system. To define a RESID to be visible only on the local system, the following statement must be in the directory entry for the CA VM:Backup service virtual machine:

  IUCV *IDENT resid LOCAL

 

 

SSI:  Global authorization

In an SSI environment, CA VM:Backup needs to be useable from all members of the complex. To define a RESID to be visible on all members on an SSI complex, the following statement must be in the directory entry for the CA VM:Backup service virtual machine:

   IUCV *IDENT resid GLOBAL

 

 

Additional Information:

Restart CA VM:Backup after you change the directory entry.
