QSECOFR - ACCESS
I am no specialist in AS400 and wonder if the AS400 poweruser has access to all data on every partitions or if limited to management tools only, etc.

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

Any *SECOFR user class profile with all special authorities has access to all data and all objects on the partition that it is created. You can remove special authorities from profiles that you create.

Note that special authorities, e.g., *ALLOBJ, cannot be removed from QSECOFR.

    The QSECOFR profile has access to every object, every file on the system. Each partition has its own QSECOFR profile so that profile on each partition has access to every object and file in that partition. It is something that you do not want any user to use because it is so powerful. You cannot exclude QSECOFR from accessing any files due to the *ALLOBJ authority it has and needs to be able to administer the system.

    Hi, You CAN work with QSECOFR for as long as you like, however it is wiser to use another profile for most tasks and QSECOFR (or even better - another profile with *SECOFR rights) only when necessary. Regards, Martin Gilbert.
