  • message (CPC2613) "Modified the description for the device QPADEV0002"

    Hi All

    every 15 minutes in the Qsysopr i see this message (CPC2613) "Modified the description for the device QPADEV0002" from the job QTVDEVICE User QTCP ..

    Can some one help me to understand what is it ?

    Thanks in advance

    QTVDEVICE is part of the Telnet server that allows you to accept 5250 logons over TCP/IP. The message means that a device description has been changed by the telnet server.

    Usually, this is done when someone connects in order to change stuff like the character set of the device, the printer associated with the device, and other similar attributes. This would be done due to settings in the user's 5250 emulation configuration.

    I don't know why this would occur for the same device every 20 minutes. You would probably need to talk to whomever is using that particular device to find out why.

      Is it always for device QPADEV0002? Or was that just one example and the device is different in separate messages? And is it always "15 minutes" or is that another example time?

      If the device name and the time interval change, then it's probably normal. Different users make a telnet connection and the system assigns a device for that user. The attributes of the device are changed to match the configuration that the user requested.

      But if it's always "QPADEV0002" and it's always "15 minutes" between messages, then something odd is going on. It would be a good idea to track any connection to learn which client system is making the connection and why.

        Hi
        thanks all for your reply
        in effects is how Tom says.. it always "QPADEV0002" and it's always "15 minutes"... Question: how can i track which client (and user) make the connection ?

        Thanks in advance

          If you do a wrkcfgsts *dev qpadev0002 to see if anybody is signed on - if so you know who is currently using it...

          You can do a DSPAUDJRNE against Journal entry types DO, CA and CO to see if they give you any insight.

            It can depend on a few things.

            First, a device named "QPADEV0002" is normally a virtual device. Device names beginning "QPADEV" are normally created by the system in order to handle basic telnet connections when a specific device name isn't requested as part of the connection. I suppose "QPADEV0002" could be the requested name by the user, but it wouldn't be common.

            You'd want to check how many devices exist with names that start with "QPADEV":
            Code:
            ===> WRKDEVD DEVD(QPADEV*)
            We know that one exists, but we don't know if you have them in regular use or if you allow a large number to exist or whatever. You might vary QPADEV0002 off and delete it. Check To see if it gets recreated; and if it does, check to see what created it.

            You possibly would use DSPJRN to display any related entries from QAUDJRN, the system audit journal. You can use DSPAUDJRNE, but it won't tell you as much. And you'd possibly then need to use DSPJRN anyway to see details such as the IP address of the remote system that requested the connection.

            DSPAUDJRNE might be good enough if you can narrow down start/end date and time enough to see any JS entries for job name QPADEV0002. That can at least let you determine a user name that's associated with any job on the device, but you can already see that on the message in QHST. (I don't see CPC2613 messages in QSYSOPR.) Knowing a user name won't necessarily tell you enough. You'll possibly need the remote address, and you'll need the actual journal entry for that.

            Beyond that, it's hard to say without knowing more about your system and network. There are a few alternative directions that you might have to investigate.

              Hi find who make this operation ..

              CALL PGM(QSYS/QTVDEVMG) PARM('-M') from Job QTVDEVICE user QTCP


              hi have four of this work in WrkActjob:

              QTVDEVICE QTCP BCH 0,0 PGM-QTVDEVMG TIMW
              QTVDEVICE QTCP BCH 0,0 PGM-QTVDEVMG TIMW
              QTVDEVICE QTCP BCH 0,0 PGM-QTVDEVMG TIMW
              QTVDEVICE QTCP BCH 0,0 PGM-QTVDEVMG TIMW

              doe's anyone know what are ?? i'm on V5R3M0

              Thanks

                They are normal components of the telnet server.
