Well, now that I see you are only talking about 5
shareholders/subsystems my violent opposition to this idea is tempered
somewhat,  However, what happens if 5 should become 10, 20, 30 etc. ? 
(What happens if you go public and have several thousand shareholders ?
- yeah I know Rochester will gladly sell you a 12-way model 650    :-)
)
If you continue with the subsystem idea you will soon reach the point
where the administration becomes unmanageable and the system performance
may start to suffer.

Normally you would use a separate interactive subsystem to control
things like easily segregating users from different remote locations, or
users of different applications.  You want to keep everyone off the
system from Branch X, or who is using application Y, then take down the
subsystem that their workstation names are assigned to.  (Yes this
becomes a whole lot more difficult when using Telnet sessions and all
your devices as QPADEVnnnn - but that's another story).

Yes, I would suggest you control their access at the userid level
instead.  If you want to keep someone out you can easily disable their
profile, or use available tools/programs to control conditions (like
time of day, phase of the moon, etc.) when they are allowed to sign on.

        The IT Service Delivery manager suggested it, I can see his
problem when
        we wo'nt do this, because we will give them limeted access, you
can just
        shut down the subsystem and no problem at all, w'll have to
create about
        5 extra subsystems in the beginning.

        What's you're suggestion, secure this on userlevel????

        Or do you have other suggestions???

        Greetz,

        Maurice.
