This worked great with a minor gotcha... on 5.2 and below if you don't qualify the lib the outq is in it assumes QUSRSYS and if it is there then everything's works. ON 5.3 you need to qualify the lib even if the outq is in QUSRSYS. Thanks for everyone's suggestion. _____________________ Kirk Goins CCNA Systems Engineer, Manage Inc.

They must be in *READY state so the ones on hold or save need released. And since the profiles are on the new system all the spool files are still associated with the original profiles. ---------------------------- Bryan Dietz Aktion Associates midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx wrote on 10/15/2004 04:03:24 PM: > I have a client on a 620 running 5.2 moving to an i5 running 5.3.
