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

There are multiple i-series commands for doing this. Depending on what you are looking for and have authority to.  Look at the DSP**** commands. You may have to send the output to a file then query your results.

    Strange question. Define which changes you want to see. Audit Journaling is the most handy tool to record and track changes.

    Changes to what? Program source? Database records? Files in your /home directory? Attributes of journals? Something else? Different kinds of changes can involve different kinds of tracking features.

    In most cases, it also depends on what kind of tracking you have set up. In many cases, if you haven't set anything up, then there's nothing to look at. We'd need to know what you have available for whatever changes you're looking for.

    Hi

    I preforms an audit on AS400 system, and I want to view an output from the system of  all the changes that have made in the system from 01/01/2015 up today,

    I would be grateful if you could help me.

    Thanks

    Talia

    Big word "all the changes". An audit would in my opinion start with the Security Practices the shop keeps on their iSeries. Again Sytem Auditing should be in place and setup to track that. If that has been setup you can view changes in almost anything on the system.
    iSeries basic setup starts with system values, more specifically the Security System Values. Next User Profiles and their capabilities. As I said all changes can be tracked, but one needs to have the tools setup and running from day one. And having traces of all changes consumes Disk Space= Money

    "Disk Space= Money" -- Of course, not having the data when it's needed can be far more expensive. Since almost all tracking objects can be regularly backed off to much less expensive storage, the 'expensive disk' usage can be minimized. It's much harder to minimize the cost of not having needed data.

    To find out what has been changed like programs,databases, profiles... try this under a profile like QSECOFR with full access or you will miss objects you are not authorized to.

    DSPOBJD OBJ(*ALL/*ALL) OBJTYPE(*ALL) 
    OUTPUT(*OUTFILE) OUTFILE(QTEMP/CHGD_OBJS)
    then query this file by you dates, either create date or change date. 

    For actual data changes, unless you have journaling turned on you won't be able to see what data has been change.
