We had an unplanned power failure lasting about 2 hours here last night. Power was restored at about 9pm but one of our servers failed to restart. This morning, after a manual restart, I found that the system value QPWRRSTIPL was set to zero. I set it to 1 but I'm quite certain that it was set correctly in the past.

After checking on this, I found that whenever there is a power failure, the OS changes this value back to zero. I'm wondering how other shops deal with this. Based on IBM's documentation, it is probably not a good idea to add the change back to a value of one in the startup program.
