In IBM i 6.1 (V6R1), the default behavior of the Power Down System (PWRDWNSYS) command has changed. The default value (*ENVVAR) for the CONFIRM parameter on the PWRDWNSYS command now displays a confirmation window. This will cause the Robot Save Restricted State Utility (RSU) to halt and wait for a confirmation before performing the IPL.

Enter the following command on a command line to permanently bypass the confirmation window on the PWRDWNSYS command:

ADDENVVAR ENVVAR(QIBM_PWRDWNSYS_CONFIRM) VALUE(*NO) LEVEL(*SYS)
