SM20 Reason Codes

Postby jpschulte » Wed May 12, 2010 7:22 am

I am reviewing the security audit log (sm20) and I see some odd entries that have various Reason codes for the failure of a transaction start. Some reason codes I recognize, like reason=6 is 'not authorized' (working as expected) I see some others that I would like more info about.

Reason code 3 (reason=3) for example.

What is the text behind these reason codes? or where can I find them?

I think that the reason-codes correspond to the filters you can set in SM19. So, any available documentation you can possibly find there ...

Most likely you applied Kernel patches since January but the application component SP's are not there yet to make sense of the codes.

Do you see the same in ST01 authorization traces already?
