    QUESTION:

    Why does MVJE STC picking up the ROOT Id rather that its own id?



     


    ANSWER:

     

    Because UID(0) is specified. When we set superuser it says oh it s 0 - use the superuser id in OMVS which is probably BPXROOT ot ROOT.
    So MVJE would not use superuser ROOT which doesn't have the authority to do things like lanuch the JVM.

    Modify
    OMVS / MVJAVA LAST CHANGED BY xxx
    HOME(/u/mvjava) OMVSPGM(/bin/sh) UID(0),
    to
    OMVS / MVJAVA LAST CHANGED BY yyy
    HOME(/u/mvjava) OMVSPGM(/bin/sh) UID(zzz),

    This is documented on https://docs.bmc.com/docs/display/MJE31/Security+requirements

    The following conditions apply to assigning UID:

      
       
    • To activate the new definitions, you might need to refresh the updated class.
    •  
    • The segment requires a nonzero user ID and a home path.
