&RCVR is declared with a length of 31. The fourth parameter has a length of 10.

Here's more information about the API:

Thanks everyone.

Wayne, what is the length of &RCVR? And how many spaces after *NO in the
call to the API? (It probably would not matter, but I would rather be sure
for the API call).

You can check to see if the system is in a restricted state with this code:

ENDSBS SBS(*ALL) DELAY(300) ENDSBSOPT(*NOJOBLOG)

I want to write a simple CL program to unable the user to back up all the
User and IBM libraries.

The user will sign on as QSECOFR in QCTL (which is the controlling
subsystem) and call the program interactively and go home.

Will the following work?

PGM
ENDSYS OPTION(*IMMED)
SAVLIB LIB(*NONSYS) DEV(TAP01)
CALL QGPL/QSTRUP
RETURN
ENDPGM

QSTRUP in QGPL is the startup program used after IPL.

The thing I am worried about is SAVLIB will start before ENDSYS completes
and terminate with an error message.

Ofcourse, I am not sure it will all fit on one tape. So, if next morning,
it
is stuck asking for a new tape, he will just take C to cancel the SAVLIB
command and then I to continue on to the QSTRUP.

Any suggestions please.
Thanks
