Description:

This document describes how to setup HCD and HCM with CA VM:Secure as the ESM.

Solution:

The following steps will accomplish this. Not all steps may be necessary, but, it works with them.

  1. In the profile for the HCD server add the following code:

    'ACCESS 198 V' /* access to tcpmaint 198 for rpiucms and validat modules */
    'NUCEXT RPIVAL' /* see if RPIVAL is already loaded */
    if rc = 0 then 'NUCXDROP RPIVAL' /* and unload it if it is */
    'NUCXLOAD RPIVAL VALIDAT' /* use validat as the rpival code */
    'RPIUCMS INIT'

  2. Make sure the CBDCONF NAMES file said:

    :SECURITY.ESM

  3. In VM:Secure AUTHORIZ CONFIG add GRANT DIAGPCHK and a GRANT SURROGAT

  4. Add the following to the HCD server directory entry:

    OPTION DIAG88
    IUCV ALLOW
    IUCV ANY PRIORITY
    IUCV DUALPASS
    LINK TCPMAINT 198 198 RR

The NUCXLOAD of RPIVAL is what ultimately got it working, without that none of the other pieces did the trick.
