Introduction:
Upgraded from z/OS 2.1 to 2.2 and started receiving:
                                   
TSS7220E 102 J=RESTORE A=JOEACID VOL=DISK12 ACC=UPDATE DSN=D8000.ADA396.AS
TSS7227E UPDATE Access Not Granted to Dataset PROD.DATASET          
IEC150I 913-38,IFG0194E,RESTORE,SAVE,DDASSOR1,D4EE,DISK12,  960          
PROD.DATASET      

When trying to restore a dataset.                                                 

Do you know if IBM closed a loop hole with security? Definitely a difference between 2.1 and 2.2

Answer:
We were not given any heads up or whitepapers by IBM regarding a change in the security checks for the restore application.

Most restore utilities require UPDATE access and not just READ to restore a dataset.
This would be more of a bug with the restore utility and was corrected.
