However RDi can run an 'initial command' at time of connection so 'that jobs' lib list can be changed.
As stated in this thread, that 'initial command' must be found on the lib list of 'that job'.

I use 3 different connections so I have 3 different users setup to connect with, each with their own job description dictating the library list.

The "Iniital Library List" is a little bit of a misnomer. You can't setup a library list independent of the job description you're using in the connection. Or at least I haven't been able to figure that out.

Each connection in RDi is very like a job on your i: It will always start with the default library list from the job description of the user profile you select.

You can add libraries to the library list through the properties window as noted below, or you can run an initial command to setup your library list from the same properties window. The command must be in the default library list, of course.

Alternatively, you can change the default libl on the jobd of the connection's user profile (by changing the default libl of the user's default jobd, or changing the user's default jobd, or even using a different user profile.) It all depends how much authority you have to mess around with user profiles, job descriptions and so on.

The initial command route is by far the easiest method, and as long as the connection's user profile has the right authority and library list to run the initial command things should just work.

Thanks,
I tried adding my startup command to the command line but it didn't work.

I think the easiest way is to use the Connection. Right click the
connection, Properties, Subsystems. You can change the library list
there, either by putting the libraries you want or calling a CL
program that does it (in the initial command box).

I have several test / QA / production environments, and I have a
separate connection for each project in each environment. That makes
managing the library list easier for me.
