Correct order to restore user profiles

I have restored a total user environment to another iSeries system. But now I'm experiencing some trouble with the *USRPRF objects. In the OLD system there's a group profile called SSA that has *all rights to these objects. In the new system, USRPRF SSA has these rights instead of *group SSA. After the data restores, I have restored the user profiles with RSTUSRPRF *all and omit Q* and used the RSTAUT command. How is this possible?

The correct order is to restore user profiles first, then data, then run RSTAUT. You restored the user profiles AFTER the data, therefore all private authority was lost.

The Backup Recovery Guide (SC41-5304-05) list the following steps for recovering all system and user data:

 
 ENDSBS SBS(*ALL)OPTION(*IMMED)
 RSTUSRPRF USRPRF(*ALL)
 RSTCFG OBJ(*ALL)
 RSTLIB SAVLIB(*NONSYS)
 RSTDLO DLO(*ALL)SAVFLR(*ANY)
 RST DEV('/QSYS.LIB/media-device-name.DEVD ')OBJ(('/*')
        ('/QSYS.LIB '*OMIT)('/QDLS '*OMIT))
 RSTAUT
 STRSBS SBSD(controlling subsystem )
