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

User Profile name will be uniquely identified in the system.
CHGUSRPRF command is used to change the User Details of the mentioned “User Profile” but not the user profile name.

    how to change user profile name? You can't change it. The name of a *USRPRF object is an identifier that gets embedded into too many other objects such as job descriptions and elsewhere. Numerous "hidden" objects such as Interactive SQL sessions may be created with linked names. Many applications may store data under a user profile's name. The profile's name is a unique identifier that should never be changed. Create a new profile with the desired name if it must be renamed. Leave the original profile in place until all associated objects have been identified and handled. Tom

    Go to original profile via wrkusrprf and do option 3 (Copy) create new profile will have to use new password . Then using wrkusrprf go to old profile use Option 12 to work with objects and take option 9 tpChange owner to new Profile. Disable old Profile temporarily and when sure everything is correct may be deleted.

    Copy the user profile, once that is complete, delete the old user profile. The system will prompt you for the new user profile to transfer ownership of any owned objects. Enter the new user profile that was just created via the copy. After deleting the old user profile, verify that the any objects not needed, like user profile message queues, were not copied to the new user profile created and delete them.
