Change daemon jobs on IBM i to not use the default output queue QPRINT

Follow

Issue

The daemon jobs running in subsystem ZENDSVR6 use the default output queue, typically PRT01 or QPRINT.  This can be inconvenient for customers who do not want this output in the default output queue, especially if that output queue as sending output to print.

Environment

Zend Server 6, 7, or 8, running on any supported version of IBM i.

Resolution

To change the output queue for the Zend Server daemon jobs running in subsystem ZENDSVR6, change job description ZSVR_JOBDA.

For example, you could create an output queue called NOPRINT:

CRTOUTQ OUTQ(QGPL/NOPRINT)

Then, change job description ZSVR_JOBDA to use this output queue:

CHGJOBD JOBD(ZENDSVR6/ZSVR_JOBDA) OUTQ(QGPL/NOPRINT)

End the ZENDSVR6 subsystem, and then start it.  The jobs in subsystem ZENDSVR6 should now all have output queue QGPL/NOPRINT as the job default output queue.
