I have 2 Intermec 5250 Devices that we use as time clocks. When we bring the system down for maintenance and IPL - I currently have to have someone drive to 2 locations to sign these on in order for the timeclocks to be accessible

Hi,

If these devices are some sort of PC, one option would be to use something like PC Anywhere to take control of them remotely to sign them on.

Can you give us some more information about the devices?

Hi Martin,
Thanks for such a fast reply. These are Intermec Model 2481 Card Scanners . The Iseries configures them as device category = *dsp device type=5291 .
Thanks

Hi,

These devices have to be signed on somehow ? How do you sign them on ? Just trying to get an idea of what we’re dealing with here…

Regards,

Hi
They have an actual AS400 signon screen and a small keyboard built in. They have their own User id and Password for the iseries which are directed to the correct menu for this process. I would need to sign on and then call the pgm
Thanks Again</b>

    programs can be written for Intermec in C language (you can have someone write an auto log on pgm if you can't do it via the intermec settings) your AS400 can vary on the device during IPL your IPL can call the log on program for the device during IPL or WRKJOBSCDE can run the auto log on that's the approach i'd look at sorry if it's not too helpful
