Lastly, perhaps you could consider the Service Tools QSECOFR ID the
"system Admin" and the regular QSECOFR ID as the "Database Admin".

Oooo, I like this Charles. It probably wouldn't clear a
common sense check, because you don't need SST for purely
sysadmin jobs like backup and recovery, but it IS required
for the hardware stuff that you have to typically do on
Windows machines and that you rarely have to worry about on
the System i.

But then again, a LOT of auditing is not about common sense.
Trying to create common admin roles for the System i and a
Windows box is sort of like trying to create a common
driver's manual for a Mopar and a moped. So you might get
away with it.

Thanks Joe, I liked it too <grin>.

I agree that it may not meet the common sense check. Backup/Recovery may be an issue, but then again,
maybe not as Backup/Recovery of the DB is usually the responiblity of the DB admin. In the case of
the iSeries, recovering the DB automatically recovers the "system", unless you're dealing with recover
on a different box.

One thing I see as an issue for sure would be creation/modification of the various *DEVD.

Wouldn't it be nice do deal with auditor's who actually have some expertise in what they are auditing?
