Just to be sure I understand what you are doing…
User A is going to start a TELNET session from System A to System B. You want to force User A to log in to QINTER2 based on the WSID. You’ll have a preset WSID for the user.
1. I think you’ll need to set the WSID using the RMTVRTDSP parameter of the TELNET command.
2. Add a WSE in QINTER2 on system B for that workstation name and specify the maximum active jobs. (The default is *NOMAX)
3. Add a WSE in QINTER1 on system B for that workstation name and specify 0 (zero) for the maximum active jobs. That will prevent any signon to QINTER1 from that workstation.
We do something similar where we have more than one interactive subsystem and force users into one subsystem based on WSID. In our case, we wildcard the WSID using the first two letters of the WSID and an * (for example AK*) . We found if we did not have the entry specifying max active 0 in QINTER for that name that sometimes the jobs would start in QINTER.
Thanks for your reply, I beat this issue up this weekend bouncing it back and forth thru the different iseries.
I was not aware of the entry being 0, that’s good to know, however, as I left it. the user signs on with the device ID specified, when the subsystem QINTER1 goes down it automatically switches to QINTER2. It was cool seeing it change.
Thanks again for your help. You always learn something new.
