AS/400 system shuts down

AS/400
We have a AS/400 system that shuts down at 5 pm or within 5 minutes of 5pm everyday. Is there a timer or setting that can be changed to correct this?

    It sounds like a scheduled job has been set up.

    WRKJOBSCDE will show all the schedule jobs. Review them and see if one of them includes the shutdown (IPL).

    You may find the IPL is part of a backup process so it may not be as simple as removing the Sheduled job.

    Let us know what Scheduled jobs have been set up so we can advise.

    There must be a scheduled job to shut down your system. My guess is there will be PWRDWNSYS command to power down system. WRKJOBSCDE show you all scheduled jobs where you will set or change times etc.

    Type GO CMDPWR on the command line. You will get a menu where you can control the Power Schedule.

    If it is a scheduled job use this command :  WRKJOBSCDE OUTPUT(*)      
                SEQ(*DATETIME) 
    That can facilitate your search.

    If you don't see the PWRDWNSYS command it the job scheduler as a job, try this. Look at the other jobs scheduled to run around 5:00 using pdraebel method. It may be that the command is embedded in a nightly job. Not a good idea to do it this way as other jobs may get terminated before they have a chance to complete.

    Another thought, have you tried looking at the system log? try a DSPLOG and look at log QHST around that timeframe. You should see the shutdown taking place. You may be able to see where or who initiated the command. You can do a help on the command for more info.

    Don't forget to look at 3rd party job schedulers also. Without know your system there are a number of options that are possible, even a homegrown system.
