I used to work for a company that kept a tight reign on the physical security of the AS/400s - not even allowing the system admin access. This isn't really that big of a deal. As a sys admin, we often remotely support systems that are in other states or even other countries. Is there a system admin for this box? If so, he / she probably does not want anyone loading PTFs except for him / her. I don't allow anyone else to load PTFs for the systems I administer. You should check to see what kinds of tape / CD handling procedures are in place with the operations staff. They probably have a procedure for loading / unloading tapes / CDs (how else would the application software get upgraded?). If they don't have such procedures, you may want to nudge them in this direction. HTH, -------------------------- Original Message -------------------------- I 've searched the archives and everything I've found says this can't be done but I thought I would ask anyway. I'm the new security officer of a recently added AS400. Ie previously existing network. This means I have all the access I could possibly want inside the box, but the powers that be will not give me physical access to the box! We run a TCP/IP network and I want to know if there is anyway to load PTF's etc from my PC's CD-ROM to the AS/400. The only other option available to me is to get them to move the 400 out of god's room and into my office!
