Al,

Don't know what the precise odds are.  Maybe 50/50...?

But I'm EXTREMELY risk-aversive, myself...  Even if the odds were a million
to one, I wouldn't take that risk (on a production system).  "Not gonna do
it" because the recovery on a cratered system would surely not be worth any
potential gain, that I can see from trying something like this.


I'd like to other thoughts on the subject, though.

| If you attempt to "run" a command from QSYSV4R4M0, you get a diagnostic
| message CPD0118, and an escape message of CPF0001.  My thought is that if

|
| Ya...  I'd say I agree with that...!  Can users implement this through

| | I dont have a reason as such. One of our programmers
| | modified a jobs *LIBL (system portion) with CHGSYSLIBL.
| | Could not even do a SYS REQ cancel, or SIGNOFF.
| | It is simply something that is very easy to do and
| | I suspect will disable the AS400.
| | IBM should prevent the backwards compatibility libs
| | getting into the SYSLIBL.
