Don,

A list of users is easy...I'll even bet you already know how to do it.

BTW, if your goal is just to screw up the system, create a scheduled 
job entry to do a pwrdwnsys every few hours.

Or better yet: DLTPGM QSYS/*ALL

The best thing of all is to go into strsst and rename the QSYS library 
(did that one time at IBM's direction...life was much worse after than 
before)...this will totally screw a machine.

Of course, with any of the above things, your new job title would 
probably be "Unemployed".

My point is that very few things can not be abused.  Some are harder. 
 If my goal was to cause problems, don't think I would resort to 
obscure API's...to much work and can do so much better with os/400 
commands.

Bob

Cool ... that means one could create a REALLY COOL program:

It keeps calling the API with different user names until all of the 
users
are disabled!

A MAJOR pain for the sysadmin!

So HOW does one go about getting a list of users????

Rob,

As shipped, run time access to these API's is restricted.  And of
course, before you can even use it, you must a) have a program and b)
beable to execute the program.

So...it would only help if you already have access to the system you
are trying to get into...actually, quite a bit of access.

BTW, the Get Profile Handle DOES disable the profile after the max
number of signon attempts has been exceeded.  I just tested it (V3R7
system).
