I want to look into finding a way to administer my AS/400 servers instead of having to log into each one and create, move or modify users one by one. is there a package or software or something that allows us to do this. Also I would like for it to keep tabs on all of my boxes of what users have what so that I can look it up quickly. for instance I may need to create a user on all 130 boxes and instead of logging on to each one and setting up each user I would like to run something and let it do it for me.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you haven’t done so already you will want to look at <a href=”http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/index.jsp?topic=/rzaih/rzaih1.htm”>Management Central</a> and in particular <a href=”http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/topic/rzaih/rzaihuseradmin.htm”>Managing users and groups</a>. This may provide the level of function you are looking for.

If not, everything that Management Central is doing is done using system APIs and exit points which you can also utilize. Some of these APIs, and sample programs, are demonstrated in my book APIs at Work Second Edition under the Security topic.

Hope this helps,
