Blunder #2: Using the prompter on the PWRDWNSYS command

Have you ever used the prompter on the PWRDWNSYS command and inadvertently hit enter? Well you're not alone. Fortunately, this user can still laugh over what his coworker did.

An anonymous user writes:

Virtually everybody in the local iSeries IT shop has done this at least once during their careers -- use the prompter on the PWRDWNSYS command and inadvertently hit enter.

But we have one particularly creative person who TELNET from one system to another, then TELNET to another, then TELNET to yet another. This enterprising soul needed to do a PWRDWNSYS on one of our test systems. Unfortunately, he lost track of what system he was on and did PWRDWNSYS on three production systems before he realized he wasn't on the test system!

Where do you want to go next?
