Issue:

When installing release r20.0 of the CA Database Management Solutions for DB2 for z/OS using CSM the USS directory build step is failing.

Creation of directory /directory_name/ failed.

Cause:

In the USS Directory Creation task error log, the error identifies BPXROOT(0) as an invalid argument:

MME0270S - Action completed with an error. Action: getpwnam_r Error code: 121 EDC5121I Invalid argument. Reason code: 0xB490000 Info: user name: BPXROOT(0)

BPXROOT(0) is not a valid user name.

Resolution:

In the FILE OWNER and GROUP OWNER field specified in the installation wizard, you only need to enter the owner name, with no UID or GID number. CSM expects a user name only (such as BPXROOT or MSMTC).
