I use CHGOWN on QSYS objects all the time. One command can change the owner
of a library and all of the objects inside. You just have to use the UNIX
naming convention when specifying the objects:

CHGOWN OBJ('/qsys.lib/mylib.lib') NEWOWN(NEWOWN) SUBTREE(*YES)

That command will change all the objects in MYLIB to the owner NEWOWN. You
will get an error message back for multimember files stating it can't change
the owner on a member (very true).

CHGOWN OBJ)'/mydirectrory/mysubdirectory') NEWOWN(NEWOWN) SUBTREE(*YES)

This one will do the same for the IFS directory.

It's also much faster than CHGOBJOWN command for some reason.

Is there a variation of the IFS command CHGOWN which will change the owner
of all IFS objects owned by one owner to another?
This person owns too many objects to try to use WRKOBJOWN and option 9.
