You can create users specifically for running 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

The home directory and UID must be unique for each user.
Enter the following commands:
# mkdir /u/SFTUSER # mkdir /u/SFTUSER/.ssh2 # chown -R SFTUSER /u/SFTUSER # chmod 700 /u/SFTUSER/.ssh2
If you use ACF2 for system security and have enabled the TSO Command Limiting list, the batch user must have
