Trying to set up CA TPX profile-level profile selection by defining resource class CAÃ…TPX but no profiles are assigned at signon other than the default profile.

Issue:

Using international language (Swedish).  TPX documentation for setting up security suggests naming the Resource Class CA$TPX.  We are using CAÅTPX.

We are trying to set up CA TPX profile-level profile selection with external security by defining resource class CAÅTPX but no profiles are assigned to the dynamic user at signon other than the default profile.  This results in less sessions on the user's TPX menu than they should have.

Cause:

Emulator and mainframe are using different codepages.

There can be differences for special characters when using international languages and codepages.

Resolution:

To avoid potential problems, define a security resource class name that does not include any special characters.

In this case, after changing resource class name from CAÅTPX  to CATPX in security and TPX SMRT, profiles were correctly assigned to users during signon.
