How about editing your i5/OS system values every day in a controlled,
safe manner.

On your System I, for those system values that you have customized and
those IBM commands that you have changed from default values, I suppose
that you perform those in a CL program that you run regularly, even
daily. Here are a few lines from the CL we run each day.
Will come in handy when we upgrade from i5/OS V5R3 to a more current
release. Won't have to hunt and search for all the custom mods we have
made.


/* The shipped value for CRTPF is 10000 records with 1000 created */

/* in three increments. */

/* This meant that the file is full at 13,000 records. */

/* Increasing this value will mean that it is less likely that */

/* World Writer files created will max the file size. */
