When I run advisor, I get the message that 43% of my objects are using too high of a security level. Is there a way to check what objects are using what level and the security level in use?
I'm not familiar with the "advisor" that you are referencing to so I'm going to guess that the results is telling you that the *PUBLIC authority for the objects is more open or allows more access than it should. You can use the Print Public Authority (PRTPUBAUT) and Print Private Authority (PRTPVTAUT) commands to determine the authorities for various object types on the system.
