Add details to subsystem changed messages (CPC1602 and CPC1604) as to what was changed
CPC1602 - Subsystem changed, and CPC1604, Active subsystem changed are logged to QSYSOPR and QHST and simply state that the specified subsystem was changed. There is no additional message information that tells the user WHAT was changed.
Command / SQL service to retrieve specific IPL attributes
Increased use of flash copy requires changes to IPL attributes before the copy has been made, to control the behaviour of the cloned partition.
These changes need to be reverted on the parent partition to avoid unwanted behaviour at IPL.
Would help if the wrkactjob command could also filter for a specific user as well. Now you can only subset by subsystem. Usefull if you need to see wrkactjob per user as well. Now you have to press F16 on the wrkactjob screen and press F16. Work w...

Our software relies heavily on the Job Notification Exit Point notifications but struggles when a job runs in a subsystem that is yet to be restarted since the exit point entries were added/changed. Currently, the only way to determine if jobs ent...
Change HOLDS LARGE NUMBER OF LOCKS (CPI1466) when using SAVxxx Commands
Change the message issued when running IBM SAVOBJ/SAVLIB/SAVCHGOBJ from CPI1466 (Job Holds Large number of locks) to a new message that is less scary to Users. MSGID(CPI1466) is fine for all other interfaces, however for SAV/RST is isn't necessary...
