Which ever device is the system console, (system value = qconsole) is
the device it uses, without respect to the connectivity method of the
console, so in short, yes.

Jim, would this work whether it was a lan console/remote 5250 via HMC or

the HMC with access to the master console.

Jeff,

Sign off Interactive users does just that. It does not necessarily
result in a restricted state. You can get all of the subsystems to
stop
by using the "Subsystems to process" Option 9 from the control groups
menu (WRKCTLGBRM) but that will simply stop and optionally start the
subsystems you put in there. If you put *ALL in there it claims to
take
it to a restricted state and is intended for restricted state
operations
such as *SAVSYS save. If you do that remember to set the restart so
the control group will restart the controlling subsystem when it
ends.
I have not tried that specifically (all my comments are based on V7)

SBMJOB(*CONSOLE) will allow the system into a restricted state as
long
as the console monitor job has been started (Option 20 from the BRMS
menu). More importantly it will do it unattended while you sleep.
You
can also get a restricted state by submitting the back up job to the
controlling subsystem but I am not a big fan of that since you will
not
have any access to the console until the job finishes and restarts
everything.

You best option is SBMJOB(*CONSOLE) after starting the console job.
