In IBM i 7.3 disaster recovery preserves authorization list links for objects in library QSYS. You can now automatically recover the links from objects in library QSYS to their authorization lists during a complete system recovery, thereby reducing the recovery time and improving the integrity of the system.
The SAVSYS, SAVSECDTA, RSTUSRPRF, and RSTAUT functions have been enhanced to preserve the links between authorization lists and objects in library QSYS during a disaster recovery.
If an object does not exist on a partition, the link between an authorization list and the object is restored when you restore the object. However, objects in library QSYS are installed before the user profiles and the authorization lists. Therefore the links between authorization lists and objects in library QSYS are not restored when the objects are installed. With this enhancement, you can now restore the authorization list links for objects in QSYS if you saved security data from IBM i 7.3 or higher. To restore these links, do one of the following:
- Run RSTUSRPRF USRPRF(*ALL) and then run RSTAUT. Note that these steps are part of the typical recovery process.
- Run RSTUSRPRF USRPRF(*NEW) and then run RSTAUT. Note that these steps do not require the system to be in a restricted state, and you can run them even if you are not performing a complete system recovery.
