I'd like to backup my entire system, but I cannot recover my QSECOFR password. What do you recommend?
There is no way to "recover" your QSECOFR password -- that is, you cannot somehow discover what the current value is. However, you can reset it to the default password of "QSECOFR." To do that you must go into DST and perform an IPL. Detailed instructions are available in IBM's information center For the release, choose V5R2, open the Security topic in the left hand navigational bar, then open Service tools, then Manager service tools, then Manage service tools user IDs. Look for the topic Recover or reset QSECOFR passwords. This topic provides the details you need.
