And IBM has done some things with commands that makes them go to the one in QSYS anyhow - if I remember correctly - it's been so long since I made a copy like this. Others can address this from better younger memory stores.

-------------- Original message --------------
From: Jerry Adams <jerry@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

I never mess around with the IBM commands in QSYS or wherever. Instead
I created a library which is ahead of QSYS in the System portion of the
library list, copy the command to that library, and make the change
there. That way, if something goes awry, I can always whack/rename the
offending command in that library and I'm back to IBM's default.

I have a similar command to yours, but I only run it during release
upgrades. It makes the copies of the commands and applies the changes
to the defaults.

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.
