z/OS Job reports Invalid User ID / Invalid password for User ID

Discussion created by Gabor_Szilagyi_7654 on Apr 27, 2017

 

When a Job gets executed on the z/OS Agent
with the option: JCL type - Automation Engine
but the execution is unsuccessful and resulted by the following messages:
-----
U02005047 It was not possible to start job 'JOBS.IEFBR14'. Invalid password for User ID '...'!
or
U02005046 It was not possible to start job 'JOBS.IEFBR14'. Invalid User ID '...'!
-----

 

First: the Login object should be verified to make it sure there is no typo in the login data! 

 

-----
Second: 

 

If the error still preventing the successful execution,
the following settings should be checked:  

-Login object - Login info / user name should be changed from lowercase to UPPERCASE        
-Agent ini: add the option:  "PasswordMixedCase=1"

 

After the ini change the restart of the agent is necessary and the execution should be successful. 
This issue is related to the actual z/OS authorization settings: User ID case sensibility.
