What system value? As I said, I'm aware of the CHGDSTPWD command and have
even used it before. I have sufficient access on the system to do just
about anything that does not require physical hands-on contact; my profile
was created as a copy of QSECOFR and, fortunately, they restored all of our
user profiles.

Your suspicions and Pete's were what I thought, but I wanted verification.
Why they rebuilt the system from scratch, when simply replacing the failed
drive on a RAID5 would have been sufficient.

The other thing is that no one knew that the drive had failed until I
finally set up my access last month and noticed that the drive had gone
south last June.

I was about to say that, They probably hosed the entire ASP (who knows why,
a single disk shouldn't have done that) and at restore time, the lic doesnt
have users beyond the standard. AFAIK the install and initialize lic code
does not bring users from the op21.
Be aware that if certain system value is on, you cant change the password
with chgdstpwd *Default and then change it from the SST, you have to invoke
funct 21 on the console and change it from DST...

Best Regards,

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.
