Automatically schedule an IPL

Is it possible to automatically schedule an IPL weekly by using standard OS/400 commands? Can reclaim storage be automated as well?

You can schedule an IPL using WRKJOBSCDE and the iSeries command PWRDWNSYS RESTART(*YES). The reclaim storage needs the system in a restricted state. Write a simple CL program and use the WRKJOBSCDE to call the CL.
