Creating a User for Batch File Transfers
You can create users specifically for running SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS file transfer batch jobs. Batch users need only an OMVS segment. They do not need TSO or passwords.
To create a user, for example
SFTUSER, for running batch file transfers, do the following steps:
Create a user, for example using RACF:
ADDUSER SFTUSER NAME('SSH Tectia Batch User) OWNER(IBMUSER) +
NOPASSWORD NOOIDCARD +
OMVS(HOME('/u/SFTUSER') PROGRAM( /nologin ) UID(12345))
The home directory and UID must be unique for each user.
Create the USS home directory
/u/SFTUSER for the
SFTUSER user. Under it, create the
.ssh2 subdirectory for storing the remote server host keys (and optionally user keys and the user-specific
ssh-broker-config.xml configuration file). Make
SFTUSER the owner of these directories:
# mkdir /u/SFTUSER
# mkdir /u/SFTUSER/.ssh2
# chown -R SFTUSER /u/SFTUSER
# chmod 700 /u/SFTUSER/.ssh2
Note: If you use ACF2 for system security and have enabled the TSO Command Limiting list, the batch user must have
