| First, given that there is a *NONE option on the CRTJOBD command for the

| user portion.
|
| Second, the SEPT is used for most system-level program resolution
| anyway so

| entries from it for that matter, probably wouldn't kill a system. I'm not

| base jobs would come up perfectly fine. Mind you, I'm not about to test my

|
| Just to play "Devil's Advocate":
|
| I'm was talking about a **production 400 system**, in my post
| below.  OTOH,
| there are other ways to experiment with this, in other environments.
|
| Sometimes it helps to approach a problem tangentially, meaning,
| not directly
| head-on.  (Now I'm pre-supposing an actual **business need** to
| do something
| like this, whereas follow-on posts indicated that wasn't so, in the
| particular case of the original question.)
|
| IF (big if) I had a business need to try something like this, I'd
| first see
| if the system could run WITHOUT a SYSLIBL.  If I wasn't working on a
| production computer, I'd consider experimenting with seeing if jobs could
| run with only having entries in the USER portion of the *LIBL.  AFAIK,
| there's nothing unique about the system, product, and *CURLIB portions of
| the library list.  Just that they're always prior to the user portion.  So
| this experiment would put all libraries on an equal footing, in
| the USRLIBL.
| Which just eliminates a variable to deal with.
|
|
| Now IF that worked, I'd consider (again, NOT on a production computer)
| playing with the order of the system libraries.  At that point, I'd expect
| the system to tank, but would have a fallback plan, prepared just for that
| expected possibility.
|
|
| IOW, I'm not opposed to experiementing with something, per se, IF there's
| some possible business justification from the experimentation,
| and IF that's
| in line with the risk and time involved in the experiment.

| | 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
| | | you attempted to put this library higher in your library list that
| | | QSYS, you likely might crater your system.  Anyone have thoughts????

| | | | 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.
