If you can get your shutdown to be normal instead of abnormal, your IPL will be quicker and cleaner. IPLs do more work following an abnormal shutdown.
We found this years back during an upgrade, shutdown wasn't normal.
We also found the shutdowns weren't being done properly, *CNTRLD

Subject: RE: Break Messages During IPL - stopping them!


Thanks for the idea. We tried changing QSYSOPR profile DLVRY(*NOTIFY) before the flash, but it didn't take. The messages still broke.

I halfway think that the OS knows it was an abnormal termination and wants to make sure you know everything that was running when the system went down. Worst part is that about 2 steps later in the startup process messages start 'stacking up' in the message queue and you can respond to them when you get around to them. ):

Is it possible to change QSYSOPR profile default message delivery parm.

Is there any way to suppress *INFO messages, or put the [QSYSOPR]
message queue into *NOTIFY mode during an IPL from an Abnormal Termination?

Thanks! Our "ENTER" fingers will be overjoyed!
