4. Define OS-specific user rights

This section describes how to create and define OS-specific user rights when you have changed the USERCTRL default value from NO to YES.

When you set USERCTRL to YES, the Transfer CFT server can access transferred files as if it were the transfer owner (USERID).

Use the following OS-specific information to customize users.

If you set USERCTRL to YES, you must customize as described in this section. Additionally on UNIX systems, regardless of the USERCTRL setting if cft.server.exec_as_user is set to YES you must still perform the following tasks.

UNIX tasks

To enable system users in UNIX, configure one of the following two scenarios to execute using the either the CFTSU or the CFTSUD process.

Windows tasks

The Windows user who is going to perform transfers must have read and write rights for the files to be transferred.

Some user rights must be assigned to the user who launched the Transfer CFT server to permit other Windows users to perform transfers.

z/OS tasks

APF allows an installation to identify system or user programs that can use sensitive system functions. If the system does not have APF (Authorized Program Facility), the USERCTRL has no effect on the file actions. All file actions are done by the account that started Transfer CFT.

Note To enable user control for file actions you require APF.


To enable system users in IBM i, there are no specific tasks.
