We have a small problem here. Our tax software is on the corporate box (i-series P7 V6R1).
Our remote systems access the data via DDM file connections. The tax programs are currently run in batch mode via Asyncs under 1 user profile. Everything worked fine till now.
We are in the process of implementing a new GUI system. The tax data /programs will now need to be accessed interactively. The issues is the DDM connection fails because remote user profile does not exist on the corporate box.
We do not want to have to set up matching profiles on both systems and have the users maintain a password on a system they will never use. We all know users never forget their passwords.. lol
We though about a generic profile for example "SALES". If we did this we lose the ability to record the actual user profile of the person placing the order.
Our last thought is when we call out to the tax program TAX010 is there a way to change the user that is making the request. Then when the call is completed change it back to the original user.
