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.

Sign off Interactive users does just that. It does not necessarily
result in a restricted state. You can get all of the subsystems to
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
it to a restricted state and is intended for restricted state
such as *SAVSYS save. If you do that remember to set the restart so
the control group will restart the controlling subsystem when it
I have not tried that specifically (all my comments are based on V7)

SBMJOB(*CONSOLE) will allow the system into a restricted state as
as the console monitor job has been started (Option 20 from the BRMS
menu). More importantly it will do it unattended while you sleep.
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
have any access to the console until the job finishes and restarts

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