How do I determine if any IBM commands have been changed, or other objects modified (e.g. authority), when preparing to do an OS upgrade?
The only thing I can suggest is to display object descriptions to an output file as follows:
Create a query over this file selecting any record where field ODUMOD = '1'
The resulting list will show you all commands that were marked as user modified.
I've read that this particular field attribute isn't consistently set by IBM. However, it can be used to determine such things as when the CHGCMDDFT command was used against a command.
If you specify OBJTYPE(*ALL) the list will include all object types and you will see things such as user message queues, profiles, libraries and device description too.
