I heard from IBM this morning, and the changing the ownership was necessitated by the fact that the user must exist on the target system, and that's why QSYS was picked. They agreed to change the documentation.

That is, it > never actually states that it is a requirement. There are two examples there, one for "objects" and one for "licensed programs". The one for objects states "Change the owner to QSYS." The other states "Change the owner to QSYS. QSYS MUST be the owner of the QINSTAPP program". However, I don't consider these pages to be documentation any more than I would Redbooks. Stuff on those pages is just examples. AFAIK, the general requirement is that the owning profile should exist on the system that executes LODRUN. I'm not totally certain that that's an absolute requirement depending on (1) what profile executes LODRUN, (2) what system values, etc., are set and (3) what the USRPRF() attribute of QINSTAPP is, i.e., *OWNER or *USER.
