I have never met an AS/400 - iSeries - System i DBA.
On the other hand, I know lots of AS/400 - iSeries - System i System
Administrators.

iSeries DBA's perform mostly Database Architect duties, as opposed to Admin
duties required on other
platforms.

The OS takes care of the admin.

Um, because almost zero System i shops even have a DB
administrator? Can the auditor give you the name of a shop
that has one?

I'm not trying to be a smart alec, but I've never seen one.

We are in the middle of an IS Audit and the auditor is asking
us why we don't separate the duties of DB Administrator and
System Administrator on our System i platform.

.Historically we have always combined these duties on the
System i but we are now being pressured to come up with a way
to separate them.

As anyone else had to do this and if so, how did you define
these duties and set up system security to enforce it?

or ... can anyone share a compelling argument for not
separating these duties?

Kenneth
