Partner TechTip: Keep an Audit Eye on Your System Values!

Simplify the way you ensure that IBM i system values are in compliance.

robin_tatamWritten by Robin Tatam

Hopefully, you reviewed and configured your System i server's system values as part of your security procedures. If not, you should take the time to familiarize yourself with these values to understand how they impact security. With each new release of the operating system, IBM adds more system values (information about new values is available in the "Memo to Users" at the online Information Center). And once these values are set, you must ensure they stay that way. But manually comparing values is both labor?intensive and error?prone. There are better approaches.
