TAA Tools

The  Convert  Server   Authentication  Entries  command   converts  the
Authentication  Entries for  one or all  servers to  an outfile.   Each
record  contains the  name of  the server  and a  user.  You  must have
*ALLOBJ and *SECADM special authorities to use CVTSVRAUTE.

The model file is TAASEFKP in TAATOOL with a format name of SVRRCD.

The  QSYRTVSE  API  is  used   to  determine  if  a  profile   has  any
authentication entries.

To list  the file in sequence  by server name, use  the PRTDB2 command.
To list the file in sequence by user, use PRTDB2 FROMRCD(1).

The model file is TAASEFKP and the format name is SVRRCD.

A typical command would be:


One record would be written for each user specified to a server.

The SVRAUTP file is a keyed file with a key on Server name.

CVTSVRAUTE escape messages you can monitor for

      TAA9897    No server entries exist

Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.
