DB2 users, grants, and RACF
Posted on 2009-02-20
I am working with a DB2 admin for mainframe. I am told that in DB2, if you delete a user who has given grants, the grants are also taken away. I don't know DB2 at all, but that seems like a ridiculous way to set up grants. I wanted to get a URL (I have searched) stating that this is or is not true.
The second portion of this is that DB2 accounts cannot be used unless they are assigned to RACF (or Top Secret or ACF2). Then I was told that those accounts can be used by other admins, but that they have access anyway. Can anyone help clear things up for me?
