My technique is to vary them off first and then delete them. Active sessions
are bypassed by the VRYCFG command.

Let me know if you need the code.

Subject: Managing QPADEV*** virtual devices

By default, QPADEV*** virtual devices are set NOT to vary on at IPL.
Because of this many new QPADEV*** acre created, old ones not used because
they remain in a VARIED OFF state.
I'm not sure the default, Online at IPL *NO, can be changed to *YES, these
are created on the fly.

Any thoughts on how to manage.

I was thinking of deleting all QPADEV** on a daily basis, let the system
create new ones as needed.
We have several apps that use QPADEV*** devices, they are created, as
needed, on the fly.

Thank You
