Summary:

 

If I need to rename my CA Top Secret FACILITY CISCPROD to let's say CICSMAIN, what are the ramifications?

Do I have to remove from all acids this FACILITY?

Do I have to revoke all permits done with FAC(CICSPROD)?

Do I have to remove MASTFAC(CICSPROD) from all CICS region acids?

And ADD/PERMIT the new one to all?

 

Instructions:

 

CA Top Secret internally works with an unique number for each FACILITY.

CA Top Secret doesn't use the FACILITY name to identify a FACILITY.

You can rename a FACILITY.

All acids with the newly changed FACILITY will automatically pick up the new FACILITY name.

There is NO need to REMove, REVoke and ADD/PERmit again.

Example:
To rename CICSPROD FACILITY to CICSMAIN, enter:

 

TSS MODI FAC(CICSPROD=NAME=CICSMAIN)


Additional Information:

 

To permanently change it, please make the changes in your CA Top Secret parameter file member TSSPARM0 with CA Top Secret r15.0

With CA Top Secret r16.0, if you use the new control option FACSTOR(YES) you don't need to update your TSSPARM0, because the FACILITY is stored

and automatically updated within the VSAM companion file. 

 

For Ca Top Secret r16.0 go to docops.ca.com site; signon; choose your product CA Top Secret for z/OS - 16.0; click on "using" link; click on

"Specifying Control Options to Modify Your Security Environment" for more details about the FACSTOR() control option.
