The person who did the restore, probably restored the LIC from the CD (I_BASE_01) and that is why your QSECOFR password is different and your other SST id is missing.

Subject: SST Passwords After Restore

This gets back to the Load Source drive problem I mentioned a week or so ago.

I'm not exactly sure what the BP did, but the system is back up (though not completely usable for our purposes). My understanding was that they did a Save 21 and then rebuilt the system after installing a new drive. I've never had to go to such extremes so, as I said, I'm not sure exactly what steps they used.

During my tests last weekend, I ran STRSST but the password for QSECOFR did not match what I had defined eons ago. And the SST profile that I created for myself, in case QSECOFR went south, does not exist anymore. In addition, the QSECOFR user profile (not the SST one) has a different password.

Acknowledging that the BP might have changed all of this stuff after the restore, wouldn't a restore have restored the original SST passwords, and the password for the QSECOFR password?

I'm just trying to learn a little more here about restores from a Save 21 because I can fix the problems.
