The description of message TSS9012W RECOVERY FILE IS AT LEAST 90% FULL indicates that once the recovery file reaches 90% full, it will be issued again after a restart of TSS until the file wraps. Since first hitting 90%, the TSS9012W message has occurred after each IPL (before the recovery file has wrapped), however, it did not occur until sometime after CA Top Secret finished starting. Why?


After an IPl, the value for the recovery file will be reset to 0% (temporarily) until 1 record gets written to the recovery file: ie via a TSS cmd that changes the security file, a password change etc. At that point, CA Top Secret will calculate what % of the file is full, and update the RECFILE % value accordingly.
