CICS Screen (TPX) Error - INVALID GROUP (User ID not found in group)

Hello Everyone,

We have upgraded our TEST server to v5.0 PU24 recently and we are getting the error message “INVALID GROUP” in TPX screen when we tried to login through ID which is defined in Non-default external security (MLDAP ESM).

This issue occurred post upgrade.

Please find the details from console log:

Any changes required in ESM configuration or some config file in order to fix this issue. Please assist me at the earliest.

Thanks in Advance

  • Hi Venkat,

    Which changes have been made, and do they coincide with the start of the errors?

    There are several events in your sample console.log entries, with the "not found" contained. For each of these I recommend you to check and confirm that the groups/users being referenced in those events are setup as you expect. If you require further assistance I strongly recommend you to consider raising a support case to seek further assistance, e.g. where my colleagues can suggest appropriate tracing to investigate further. Please consider to mark this post as answered if it helps you progress to a solution.
