I am in the process of changing our security level from 20 to 40. One of my CL programs has an ADDTCPRTE command. As soon as it is done running, another CL will remove the TCPRTE. Users with no *IOSYSCFG are having problems running that command in the program. How should I set it up to allow users to run the program without having that authority?
Have the owner of the CL program be a user that has *IOSYSCFG special authority. Then change the program to adopt authority. To change a program to adopt its owner's authority, run the CHGPGM (Change Program) command, changing the user profile parameter from *USER to *OWNER.
