Prevent users from coming in thru ODBC

When doing nightly saves I end subsystem QINTER to prevent users from accessing any of the data files. How do I prevent users from coming in thru ODBC?

ODBC driver connects to the iSeries database server and creates a job in the name QZDASOINIT.

In order to disable ODBC connection you may want to end the host server : endhostsvr *database.

Do not forget to restart the server when your backup is done.
