If you are NOT seeing the WTOR's, I would suggest bringing anything down that has the possibility of responding to console prompts.
And see if you see the prompts. You need basically a bare bones system with nothing running except TSO.
Then see if you can get in

So in this case like any other case Google and RTFM works fine. For me, at
Here the last note is important.
So who stops someone to logon directly to TSO to an lpar from that RACFplex
or to that lpar using the emergency ID? Who said only CICS or IMS or ISM
should be used if they're locked by wtor? Or the thread opener has no idea
that tso logon exists aside from whatever they use there and it's locked.
And probably saurabh khandelwal who uses email

As I said, once the special user he mentioned was revoked whatever block
was in place for CICS or IMS or Session manager was long gone, as the
special user can't be revoked at logon without someone replying to WTOR.
End of story.

We are facing issue that someone by mistake used wrong password on special
user and this end up revoking anybody to login to our system .
RACF is not allowing anybody to login. But strange part is, we dont see any
outstanding message on console related to this special user.
But when this special user try to login to system we get below message,
IKJ5644I TSOLOGON RECONNECT REJECT - USER ACCESS REVOKED BY RACF
and any other TSO user getting
IKJ56425I LOGON REJECTED, RACF TEMPORARILY REVOKING USER access
IKJ56418I CONTACT YOUR TSO ADMINISTRATOR
Now, is there any way to solve this issue apart from flash copy of older
RACF dataset disk . Is there any resume command or some thing else we can
use from console to make the system available for rest of users.
I dont see any WTOR message for revoking or any such message for special
user and nobody else replied on any such WTOR.
What i remember is, until this special user is able to login or we get WTOR
and reply , nobody else will be able to login to system even any other
special user also .
Please correct, if my understanding is wrong and suggest.
