Regarding the responses about controlling the QSTRUPPGM processing... Consider that the system still actually /starts/, irrespective of either limiting or eliminating the work in the startup program. The controlling subsystem, the QSYSWRK [& possibly other mandatory startups], plus any other autostarts [AJE & PJE] effected by any subsystems started will still transpire.

If the manual procedure of ending the system again to restricted state is maintained, then consider that the ENDSBS *ALL request can add the parameter request to ENDOPT(*NOJOBLOG) which will limit the unnecessary work of spooling joblogs; i.e. speed up the ending of the system. Also FWiW the operator need not await full [or partial, given modified QSTRUPPGM processing] completion of the startup before issuing the ENDSBS.
