Associate Service Tools User IDs With User Profiles

Service tools user IDs were introduced in V5R3. With this change, you were required to sign in with the service tool user ID to access service functions. Service functions —whether accessed via Dedicated Service Tools (DST) from the system control panel, the System Service Tools via the STRSST command or the disk management tasks through Navigator for i —required you to enter the service tools user ID and password. Service tools user IDs are not related to IBM i user profiles. In the 6.1 release, an enhancement was made to associate a service tools User ID with a user profile. Additionally, you can now display service tools user ID information without going into SST or DST.
