Looking for help to remove the password from the CV's batch startup JCL. This shop is still using IDMS 16.0 and only the signon security is externally managed by TopSecret. An attempt was made to switch the CV startup from batch to a started task, but then IDMS failed with a 3994 abend code. The senior DBA resigned with no transfer of knowledge and now I've been asked to eliminate this security issue. I've been away from IDMS for several years and have very little experience working with the system / security components of IDMS. My IDMS experience of several year is with the database design, performance and maintenance. My search for information has been unsuccessful. Your guidance will be gratefully appreciated.
