• Subject: Adopting IOSYSCFG rights?

        I have IS staff in a number of remote sites that I would like to setup
so that they can vary on and off their local devices.  I thought that I
would give them the rights to vary controllers and devices but not
lines, tape drives or consoles.

        The easiest and fastest way seemed to give them *IOSYSCFG rights but I
still want to control some configuration objects.  Here is what I tried
but it doesn't work, can anyone suggest a better way?

        1. CRTUSRPRF called IOSYSCFG with only *IOSYSCFG special rights nothing
else and even limit command line.

        2. CRTCLPGM called WRKCFGSTS that is owned by IOSYSCFG and adopts.
This program prompts the command WRKCFGSTS.

        3. Replace the menu function they currently have with this new CLP.

        4. Grant user IOSYSCFG *USE rights to the command WRKCFGSTS

        5. For the few identified objects I don't want them to have access to,
set authority for user IOSYSCFG to *EXCLUDE.

        The problem is that through this CLP I they can't vary any devices on
or off.  It's as if the adoption rights don't carry through.  Is this
true of *IOSYSCFG rights?
