User conversion in IBM OS 400

Hello

We have a requirement of converting the User Concept in IBM i. We are at present in "ClassicUserConcept" and we need to change the user concept to "NEWUSERCONCEPT". I'm Quite new to this particular OS. So any help on this would be appreciated.

    Hi Joachim

    Yes i'm trying out the Note that you have mentioned. On executing the command i get the error /usr/sap/trans/config Not an R3GROUP file but SAPIUSR even group permission is not *RW.

    In this case if i change the permission to R3GROUP will this have any effect on the system.

    Regards

    Manikandan.

    Hi Manikandan,

    SAPIUSR should never be owner or group of any SAP directory or file, regardless of classic or new userconcept.

    How many similar warnings/errors are reported?

    Normally it should have no impact on the system if you change the user/group approprietely, but if you have a totally misconfigured system it might be. If you repair all warnings and errors reported by convusrcpt and the convusrcpt run(s) succeed, your system should be in a correct state.

    If you have doubts please feel free to perform a complete backup, so you can restore everything, but normally the back conversion method of the convusrcpt tool should be sufficient if needed.

    Best regards

    Joachim
