Creating the SSHD2 User

The SSHD2 user is used to run the SSH Tectia Server and Certificate Validator. SSHD2 must have an OMVS segment and the UID 0. Further, if the BPX.DAEMON FACILITY class profile is defined, the user must have read access to it.

To create the SSHD2 user, use commands such as those in the ADDSSHD2 example located in /usr/lpp/ssh2/doc/zOS/SAMPLIB (shown below).

ADDSSHD2:

//ADDSSHD2 EXEC PGM=IKJEFT1A,DYNAMNBR=75,TIME=100,REGION=6M
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSTSPRT DD  SYSOUT=*
//SYSTERM  DD  DUMMY
//SYSTSIN  DD *
  ADDUSER SSHD2 +
    NAME('User SSHD2 for running SSH Tectia server') +
    OWNER(IBMUSER) +
    NOPASSWD NOOIDCARD +
    OMVS(PROGRAM('/nologin') UID(0))
  PERMIT   BPX.DAEMON CLASS(FACILITY) ID(SSHD2) ACCESS(READ)
  SETROPTS REFRESH    RACLIST(FACILITY)
