Question:

The CA Top Secret Parameter File has 'VTHRESH(5,RES,CAN)', yet TSS MODIFY shows:

VTHRESH(005,NOT,CAN)  

Why would it display this way?

 

Answer:

RES in the VTHRESH Control Option resets actions SUS, CAN or WARN to NOT.

So, with 'VTHRESH(5,RES,CAN)', RES is processed and then CAN is processed.

RES resets SUS, CAN, or WARN to NOT (default), then CAN sets CAN.

This is why it shows 'VTHRESH(005,NOT,CAN)'.

With 'VTHRESH(005,CAN,NOT)' set, VTHRESH will show as 'VTHRESH(005,NOT)'. The CAN is processed first, then is reset by RES.
