Question:

I started ACF2 with a new SYSID - now many started tasks are failing with SEC6 abend
What do I need to do to get started tasks to work?

 

Answer:

Started Tasks that use OMVS (USS) services require an OMVS profile.

When ACF2 is not validating started tasks they will not get an OMVS profile created at startup.
The default value for started task validation (STC) in the CONTROL(GSO) record is NOSTC.
This needs to be changed to STC.

ACF
SET CONOTROL(GSO)
CHANGE OPTS STC
F ACF2,REFRESH(OPTS)
END
