Brad,

LODRUN is a security threat?

Just don't run under QSECOFR.  Then if whatever you are restoring is owned
by qsecofr, the ownership will get changed to qdftowner.

Or, just manually restore the QINSTAPP from the saved QTEMP to your QTEMP.
Then when you are confident that it is ok, do a CALL QTEMP/QINSTAPP '*OPT'.

Of course, the QINSTAPP probably calls something else to do much of the real
work.  And since you are worried, you will have to restore and inspect
everything on the tape/cd.

Besides, if you cant trust the source of your CD (or Tape) why are you even
installing it?

I've been using LODRUN since 1993 and I have NEVER had a customer think it
was a security threat.

David, I have a device that does this - it plugs in as a tape
drive so it still need a tape interface, but no tape drive.

And it doesn't use LODRUN - my guys think that program is a
security breach

you savlib or savobj to it - including multiple libs orobject -
when you do an unload tape it takes what you have sent and writes
a CD from it, and you can rstlib or rstobj from the CD drive on a
AS/400, and it works greet . Computer Associates uses three of
them

$4995 is the price and it includes the hardware and software, you
have to provide the correct IBM tape drive cable.

I doubt you will ever see mastering software on the AS/400 itself,
it is too time critical a project (although I have just seen CD
drives that say there are underrun proof.)
