Moving from security level 30 and higher
In an article by Rich Loeber about raising the level of your iSeries security. The author notes, "Moving from level 30 and higher is fairly easy and just requires that you make the change to the system value and perform an IPL. If you are uncertain about your
third-party software, you can activate audit logging for a few weeks
before you make the change and then review the logs to see if there are
any potential problems at level 40 or 50." This sounds like a great
