I am new in AS/400 Administration so I wanna learn more things. Please suggest me how I will be able to login on the system if my QSECOFR password is lost. Also, what are the best books which are available online to learn about LPAR, OS upgradation and AS/400 performance monitoring and resolving issues?

Hi,

I normally make sure I have a backup profile, which I can use to reset the QSECOFR password if necessary. There are other ways to get access to the system using service tools, but you will still need a profile to access them.

If you go to IBM’s information center you can find all the BIM manuals with information on LPAR, OS upgrades and performance monitoring/tuning. Here’s the link.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    We learned the hard way. Always have a back up profile for access.
    We lost the QSECOFR and service tools password. WE needed to make some changes and no one had authority. Had to have IBM come in over a weekend and fix for us. It was not cheap.

    To be on the safe side, it is better to make a copy of QSECOFR profile and use that ID to perform those system task for which you need QSECOFR. This ID would also help in case you need to reset your QSECOFR password for any reason.
