John, thanks for the quick reply! I don't want to ask too much, but considering that I learn from example, could you give me the commands that I need to know in order to do this? Specifically I like the idea of creating a separate subsystem and leaving it up, but I'm not sure how to "key" the device name, and I'm not sure what the command is to create another subsystem. Can you give me a list of command names so I can drill down my homework more narrowly..? I'm not necessarily asking for verbatim commands and options; but the more info you can spare my newbie self, I'll really appreciate it.

Much thanks, CB

The first two I thought of:

1. Once you log on, TFRJOB to another subsystem and then end QINTER. 2. Create another interactive sbs and key your device name to it. Leave
it up all the time.

For only occasional access, 1 is probably fine.  If you need to be on
all the time, 2 would be better.

Note that you should also be killing FTP and other TCP services that
allow data access during your backups.  We do an ENDTCP to make sure no
one, including ourselves, gets in.

Subject: starting only one QINTER session?

Is it possible to start only one QINTER session? At the end of the day,

we kill all QINTER sessions while we backup our system. What I'd like

to be able to do is start a QINTER session from home, but only for myself. Right now, I use: rmtcmd strsbs QINTER //systemname - but it starts QINTER across the board and any of my users can log on to the system. Does anyone know if there's an option for QINTER or if I can configure this somehow? I'm new to the AS/400 so I'm very confident compiling CL programs, or the like (yet).

Much thanks for any tips...
