  • Creating a directory object for first time.

    I made a posting a little while back regarding a 3401 error we were getting. We resolved that with the help of IBM and a WebEx meeting. The issue was a missing '/' at the beginning of the path to the object being used in the program.

    However, today there was another occurrence of the 3401 error in a new users joblog. Discovered that the object in question was created by the programmer during testing of a new process. The programmer had *RWX authority but *PUBLIC had *NONE. Once I changed *PUBLIC to *RWX, the issue was resolved.

    I doubt this would have been changed by the programmer to prevent access during testing as we have a separate authority checking process that would grant or deny access to menu options.


    How does the *PUBLIC profile receive *NONE for authority when creating a new object?

    If the DTAAUT and OBJAUT parameters on the CRTDIR command are not given a specific value, the default for both is *INDIR, which means use the public authority from the directory that the new directory is created in.
