How do I change the FFXSYS password on all environments?

First, make sure that the processor is communicating with the iSeries. At an iSeries command line, type WRKFAXPRC and hit ‘Enter’. Take option 12 to take the processor offline. When prompted, select ‘controlled’. Now change the password on all the environments including the processor. Once the password has been changed, go back to the iSeries WRKFAXPRC screen. Take option 2 to change. Reflect the new password on all the environment defaults include the *BOX. Hit ‘Enter’ and then take option 11 to put the processor online. The processor will go into RESET status. When it comes back up it will connect to the environments using the new passwords.
