Hello!, I have a weird situation, we have just upgraded our OS in our iSeries box, from 5.4  to 6.1,, and now users can not access to type some common commands as WRKSPLF, WRKUSRJOB, and previously they could. Let tell you  that also before the change, the user profiles  had  LIMIT CAPABILITIES  as  *YES,, but they could  type those commands,, now  with the new  OS,, they are not able to access to type these commands.  What could happen?

    Accepted Solution

    As part of the upgrade, the operating system commands were likely replaced.
    Display the command using DSPCMD WRKSPLF.
    It now says:   Allow limited user *NO
    Before the upgrade, the command was changed to *YES.
    Use CHGCMD WRKSPLF  ALWLMTUSR(*YES) to change it back.
    Document this so that in future upgrades it can be checked, or consider isolating all such changes in a system library.

    Hope this helps
