Just a guess, but at the same time that you went from Level 30 to Level 40,
did you also change the default public authority for library QSYS or QUSRSYS
to *USE?  The symptoms you describe (not authorised to device) remind me of
what happens when folks do not have *CHANGE authority for devices and
message queues.  One way around this is to create a permanent pool of
virtual devices and pre-authorize users to those devices.

If that's not it, send a copy of the error message and I can dig a little
into this communications security FAQ folder I've been constructing.
