• Subject: OS licensing on the AS/400, especially TELNET sessions

We are planning to upgrade from V3R7 to V4R3 in the next few weeks, and I have a
few questions:

- Currently our "Compliance Type" for the operating system (57xx-SS1) is set to
'Warning".  Is there anything in V4R3 that is going to change this to an
enforcement mode?

- We have been using a vendor software package to timeout (perform an ENDJOB) on
inactive user session after 30 minutes.  This returns the users TELNET (Rumba)
sessions to a signon screen.  However, looking in WRKLICINF option 8, the user
is still counted as an OS user.

Some reading I have done seems to state that a user should only be counted for a
license if they are signed-on.  But that's not what we're seeing.

Our TELNET QINACTTIMO is set to zero.  Would implementing this change anything?
Returning the user to a signon   screen after inactivity is what we'd prefer;
dropping the TELNET session entirely would be a problem for the users.  I've
tried varying the QPA* device off, then on after the users job has been ended,
but since the RUMBA software is set to autoconnect, it just grabs another device
and another license.
