z/OSMF Help Needed

Our site is finally implementing z/OSMF. I have the IZUSVR1 server and the IZUANG1 angel process running. Most of the add-ons do work except for one last nagging problem. When I attempt to go into Configuration Assistant; manage z/OS Cloud configuration; Work with cloud domain 'default'; I am getting a message 'Display XCF' command failed. Check that z/OS Communications Server EZBZCMCS load module is installed and properly configured.

I know that TCPIP.SEZALOAD is in the link list so that's not the issue. IBM level 2 support is pointing me towards security definitions and it looks fine to me and my security admin. We run Top Secret and we did go through CA Docs that helped in translating the RACF requirements to TS. Has anybody here run into a similar situation and resolved it?

It seems that /bin needs an external link to TCPIP.SEZALOAD(EZBZCMCS). That fixed the issue.

just getting back to this subject, I know this is a little old but I attempted to create a symlink to TCPIP.SEZALOAD(EZBZCMCS) - the link was created sucessfully but when attempting to browse the file
An external symbolic link was found but is not supported.

Action: Do not specify the name of an external symbolic link.
I'm confused, did I define the link incorrectly?
Pathname : /MVSRS2/bin/ezbzcmcs
External link . . : 1
File size . . . . : 24
File owner . . . . : xxxxxxxx(0)
Group owner . . . : OMVSGRP(1)

Hi Peter,

I don't think you can browse it from OMVS. I got this from my ls command:

/bin> ls -la ezbz*
erwxrwxrwx 1 A051825 AOPOPER 8 Oct 9 14:36 ezbzcmcs -> EZBZCMCS

That is what it should look like. I think the command to create the link was "ln -e EZBZCMCS ezbzcmcs" when you are in the /bin directory. That'll force it to look outside of OMVS into the linklist for it.

here's the doc: ... /hlnkb.htm
