We have several applications using ODBC connectivity to the iSeries through Visual Basic front-ends. We need to group the QZDASOINIT jobs started by these users in separate subsystems -- depending on the application and the user-profiles starting these. How can we achieve this?

By default all the QZDASOINIT (TCP/IP connected ODBC) jobs run in subsystem QUSRWRK.

There is an option in V5R2 iSeries Access that lets you specify a different subsystem for some of these processes.

From iSeries Navigator select the following path:

"My AS/400 Connections" ...
"Your System Name" ...
Network ...
iSeries Access

A list of iSeries access servers will be shown in the right window. Right-click on "Database Properties" and then select the "Subsystems" tab. Selection of individual client processes is made by IP address or IP address ranges, so this may or may not work in your case. I hope it does though.

Use the HELP key for more specific information on this configuration process.
