So, we have IBM i User profiles defined and these users now want to use TURNOVER – so what next? Luckily, defining a user is very simple just launch Turnover (in this blog I use the Windows version running on Windows10) and click the machine you want to administer.


click SYSTEM | Administation | Users and selected the group you want to work with:

Turnover User Profiles

If you select and existing user or add a new one you will see :

Of course you can also delete users from this list. The user will be removed from TURNOVER but the *USRPRF will not be actually deleted from IBM i operating systems.
