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. A less scary message should be issued. For example: "A SAVE/RESTORE command has locked a large number of objects. These are not the droids you're looking for. Move along..."
Nightly backups run, well, every night and in QSYSOPR the SysAmin who is also the "Computer Operator" and is also the site manager (i.e., not trained in technology) sees this scary "Job hold large number of locks. This is suspicious!! Danger Will Robinson!" It isn't suspicious if it is normal, which it is for the IBM-supplied save/restore commands. Please consider changing it to a message with less alarming verbiage.
