Hi, Shannon:

You can use the OS/400 command CHGOWN to change the owner -- you can use a pattern, such as:

CHGOWN OBJ('dir/subdir/*') NEWOWN(userprof) RVKOLDAUT(*YES)

You can also use the OS/400 command CHGAUT to change the authorities if needed.

I have something like 6 million IFS objects (images) in one directory and
they are owned by something like 5 profiles. I want/need to reduce that to
a single profile owner.

To make this more challenging, there are a ton of sub-directories below the
parent directory.

I know I could write a program to recurse through all this and do it but it
seems like there should be unix command already to do this and I'm just not
seeing it.
