Question:

I wrote a REXX exec to issue MVS console commands that would be used in a TSO session. When trying the run the exec, I get error message IKJ55305I USER logonid DOES NOT HAVE CONSOLE COMMAND AUTHORITY. What do I need to get CONSOLE command authority?

 

Answer:

TSO is requires that uses have proper authority to use the TSO CONSOLE command. That is given to an ACF2 user by adding the CONSOLE privilege to their logonid.

TSO ACF
CHANGE logonid CONSOLE

The user would then need to start a new session in TSO to activate the change (logoff and logon).
