Wrote the above before I saw the below.  My recollection is vague, and Could
Very Well Be the Last SBS to allocate the DEV gets it.  Can't remember for
certain, and even if I had a system to test on I dunno if I would, in this
case.  (At any rate, mutually exclusive WrkStn name and type Entries are the
solution, as beens noted.)  My recollection, after reading this, is that
this is how you can switch a set of terminals from one subsys to another:
Start the second and when the user's signoff then it gets switched to the
other subsys.

Wonder if that would work for a QSPL that's gotten hung-up??

| Tom,
|
| You make an excellent point regarding using the allocation attempt versus
| the subsystem start as the point of conflict.  My understanding has always
| been that the last allocation attempt takes precedence and determines the
| "winner" when multiple subsystems are trying to allocate a device.  My
| memory may be faulty and I don't have the ability to test right now, but
| that's what I remember.
