Rich, the default is 0, maybe it was never changed or was and got put
back. I couldn't find in the documentation where if the value is set to 1
that it gets set back by the OS to 0.

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.
