Description:

ESPMgr command execution put an AFM with the LocalUser() keyword in the Agent and the server logs. What does this keyword mean?

Solution:

When ESPMgr utility was executed from the operating system command line and not through the dSeries job submission, you would find the LocalUser(<username>) keyword in related AFM (automated framework message) written in the Agent and the server log files, for instance:

20100108 18420500-0000 CAWA_DSEPP AGENT VERIFY~~/VERIFY_0801.8/MAIN ACTION RELEASE LocalUser(dsepp) User(AGENT) Host(p590p5)

The value shown as a parameter of this keyword is the operating system user account which executed the ESPMgr command. In the example above, the 'dsepp' was the Linux user account which executed a dSeries job with the ESPMgr RELEASE action.

It is important to note that the same user account must be defined at the dSeries side (using the Desktop Client/Admin perspective/Security option) otherwise the ESPMgr action will fail; for the example above the 'dsepp' must also be a dSeries user defined with the appropriate privileges.
