Remote Request Management (RRM)
To block transactions using RRM during specific time periods, use the following instructions:
- Verify that the "Public" rule secured entry is present:
Go to the Work With Secured Entries screen (From PSMENU, take options 2, 3, and 1).
Make sure that there is a rule present with value "Y" for the S, "*PUBLIC" for the User, "*ALL" for Network and "*PASS" for the Action fields.
- Put the ODBC exit points in Secure mode:
From PSMENU, take options 2, 3, and 8. On the Work With Exit Points screen, take option 2 (Edit) for exit points:
On the edit screen, change the Secured option to *YES and press Enter twice. Repeat this step for all exit points listed here.
- Create a calendar for blocking ODBC:
From PSMENU, take options 2, 3, and 5. On the Work With Calendars screen, press F6 to add a new calendar.
Fill in the calendar name and select *PASS as its default action. Press Enter twice.
On the Maintain Calendar screen, select the days you want to block the ODBC transactions by using the X in the field in front of each day.
Fill in the start and stop time and change action to *FAIL. Press Enter twice.
- Create a secured entry to block ODBC using the calendar:
From PSMENU, take options 2, 3, and 1. Press F6 to add a new secured entry.
On the "Add" screen, put in *PUBLIC for the User, *ALL for Network, :SQL for Operation and the calendar name for Action.
Select Y for the enabled status and press Enter twice.
Everything is now set up to block DDM transactions during the days/times you have specified in the calendar definition.
