A couple thoughts...

First, if it is indeed "ODBC", then there's no reason it must to run under the 
user profile signed on to other CAE connections. User/password can be coded 
into the DSN connection string.

But second, do we know if it's ODBC? That is, somebody much more familiar with 
the PC side might describe what really goes on for a "Client Access Data 
Transfer". Keep in mind that Data Transfer is a separate licensed component and 
does not necessarily require "ODBC". It certainly doesn't require the Client 
Access ODBC component for installation and I'm not sure any ODBC administration 
stuff is ever needed to get a "Client Access Data Transfer" configured. The 
fact that it talks to the same server only implies similar standards. 
Unfortunately at the moment, all of my PCs have everything installed, so I 
don't have a setup to see what happens when ODBC isn't installed/configured.

Finally, when the servers do the swap for current user, the server joblog ought 
to show a "Servicing user profile..." message (as Kurt showed in his sample). 
Does such a message appear that indicates a swap to QUSER? If it does, I'd 
start thinking that QUSER was indeed sent in on the request. If it doesn't, 
then maybe IBM should answer a question or two.
