you do not need to create manually. in one of the wrksysval, all you need to do is set it on QAUTOVRT the amount of sessions that you need
Note that you might want to set QAUTOCFG back to ’0′=Off after you have enough devices.
what will be happen, if QAUTOCFG value is not OFF
if you dont close it and people can open multiple or as many sessions as they want on your system which is not really recommended…by having too many sessions and too many logins, it could cause your system to be slow
If you feel overburdened with QPADEVxxxx devices, you might want to make sure the ones you have aren’t varied off.

A varied off device shouldn’t be a problem.
They have been for us. QPADEVnnnn devices get varied off for one reason or another and stay varied off. That’s why I have a program that varies them back on at intervals.

Then I would suspect a problem with something like QSYS CRTAUT() which generally ought to be *CHANGE. Hard to tell without a detailed look. You might look for audit entries generated when a connection fails because a device won’t vary on as it should.

Ah, these are probably devices that have been disabled by the system due to invalid signon attempts. That makes more sense. For those, yes, you’ll need to vary those on explicitly. I should have thought of that immediately.
You may want to look at:
Maximum sign-on attempts action. Specifies how the system reacts
when the maximum number of consecutive, incorrect, sign-on attempts
(the system value QMAXSIGN) is reached.
A change to this system value takes effect the next time someone
attempts to sign on the system. The shipped value is ’3′.
Action to take
1 Vary off device if limit is reached.
2 Disable user profile if limit is reached.
3 Vary off device and disable user profile if limit is
We like to use “2″ so the profile, but not the device, is disabled.
k if i had removed 50 systems from the organisation, then how can i remove the unnecessary workstation that are available?

If you want to delete a device description, use the DLTDEVD command. If you list devices with WRKDEVD, you can use option 4=Delete.
