&nnn at a SDSF prompt should be used w/caution as some environments
will not allow you to sim/attn back out of SDSF to go do what you need to do. You will effectively "freeze your session" whereby your only out is by calling your HelpDesk for an administrator to force a session-end. If you use Xtra as your session emulator you might be able to do a Session->Disconnect followed by a Session->Connect to wrest control back into your hands.
Bottom line is that I've locked my sessions a few times over the years by using this. Sometimes it works in your favor & sometimes it'll bite you. _________________ "Charter member of Vast-Right-Wing-Conspiracy"
