Refer to the following steps to find and disable a virus on the IFS:

  1. Using a powerful profile, whose special authorities include *ALLOBJ or *SECADM, map a drive to the IFS from any PC.
  2. Using your antivirus software, scan the IFS for the infected object.
  3. If an infected object is found, record the path for reference.
  4. From an AS/400 command line, run the RRM Object Report by Object and identify the users who have accessed the infected files.
  5. Find and record all entries with an objet path that matches the path of the infected file.
  6. Give your network support group the list of infected computers so that those computers can be cleaned.
