I use QPGMR instead.  Have QPGMR subsystem contain a workstation entry
for QPADEV*  and if the backup fails for some reason and QINTER isn't
started when I connect in I get a signon display in QPGMR.
Now YES this DOES mean others could do the same, but our sole reason for
ending QINTER is to make sure no locks are left on objects so the backup
will be complete, and no one but me is stupidf enough to be signing on
at 3am anyway, so I don't care.  If this suits you also then give it a
try.
Yes - if you leave QPGMR subsystem up during the day other jobs may get
signon displays here because of the workstation entry, so you could
either end QPGMR during the day, or set up another subsystem that is
only active when QINTER is down (maybe start this subsystem in the
dayend job just prior to ENDSBS QINTER, and after the STRSBS QINTER runs
in the day-end job do an ENDSBS whateversubsystemyouuse *CNTRLD.
