Issue:

Unable to issue commands from CA OPS/MVS in z/OS ISPF option 6. I am getting error message: TSO service error - authorized function not found - reason code X'00000038'. My hlq.CCLXLOAD dataset is both APF authorized and link-listed, so I am not sure what this is about. It is only happening on one lpar. Any idea what might be causing it to happen? 

Cause:

Non-APF Authorized dataset in the concatenated libraries in the user's logon CLIST.

Resolution:

Identify and remove the Non-APF authorized dataset from the concatenated libraries in the user's logon CLIST or APF authorize the identified problem dataset.
