Thanks for the info.  To my knowledge, the code that was added to MAPICS XA that
requires security level 30 is the MUI and maybe the license checker.  The IBM
versions of MAPICS, which didn't have either of those items, should run just
fine at levels 40 and 50.  I'm not sure if they have the license checker fixed
yet - they may have for newer versions of XA and OS/400.  The MUI is much more
dependent on undocumented interface MI "magic", I'm sure they need major support
from Rochester to get "proper" interfaces in the OS for it.

According to MAPICS, Inc. none of their versions can run at level 40 right 

I submitted a question to their response line via e-mail regarding this 
issue  just last week and here was their response:

"At this point XAR5.5 is not compliant with security level 40, this will 
I do not have a target date at this time.  XAR6 should be compliant with 
this security level when it is available and XAR5.5 will become compliant 
with this security level via PCM in the future."

This kind of surprised me because it seems that the AS/400 security experts 
think we should all be at level 40 and here we have an ERP system that 
cannot even run at 40!

BTW, we have 5.5 in a test environment and it seems to all be working OK, 
even help text.
