What does ACTION(FAIL,PASSWORD) on a TSS PERMIT command mean?


ACTION(FAIL) forces MODE(FAIL) when the PERMIT is used regardless of the global MODE, FACILITY MODE or user MODE. 

Per the CA Top Secret Command Functions Guide, ACTION(PASSWORD) causes a password check for when z/VM minidisks and datasets are accessed.
