I have seen companies use a data area and an initial program for that. Set the data area, and any new user that tries to log on gets a message that the system is down for maintenance. You can even use a scheduled program to send a log off or be logged off message, then set the data area. You need to make sure that all user profiles use an initial program to control their session though.

Nope,

We have to limit users from signing on during maintenance example to do RGZPFM on large files.

Lots of good advice, but let me summarize the issue..

1) You have to prevent QINTER from allocating the WS..
2) You have to have another SBS allocate it.

We have a need to switch some workstations to run under QPGMR so that we
can shutdown QINTER for a few hours for system maintenance.

I do have workstation entry names in QPGMR with the value MIS*.

That does work occasionally, but I don't remember how and when. My client
access session name is MIS_d1, but it continually goes directly to QINTER.

I want to test the process before this coming weekend.

Help!

TIA

Darryl.
