Clone access from one existing profile to another?

Postby NoSleep319 » Wed Feb 12, 2014 10:20 pm

We have Vanguard installed on our mainframe. Say there are two existing profiles: aaaa.bbbb and aaaa.bbbb.** . aaaa.bbbb.** would cover anything, whether it was gen or non-gen, but aaaa.bbbb would specifically cover non-gen. We have cases where idiots have created both, so some people have access to aaaa.bbbb and others have access to aaaa.bbbb.**. only people with access to aaaa.bbbb have actually access to the underlying datasets since it trumps the .** profile. So here's my question:

How do I clone/copy the PERMIT statements, or all access, from aaaa.bbbb to aaaa.bbbb.** so I can delete he aaaa.bbbb covering profile? I tried AD 'AAAA.BBBB.**' GEN FROM('AAAA.BBBB') FGEN UACC(NONE) OW(AAAA) but it was not successful. I understand that since it already exists, the AD could would probably not work, but is this a step in the right direction? Is there an alter dataset command that would work with FGEN, or is there anoher way to do this within one or two commands?

Try a batch job with LISTDSD followed by PERMIT prof1.name FROM(prof2.name)

I suggest a batch job so you have a list of existing permissions before you changed it, just for peace of mind.
