Question:

When stopping Dispatch subtasks why do I see a userid of *UNKNWN* in the Dispatch log?

Answer:

This is not a problem - if you check your Dispatch log you will probably see that the system is being closed down by a user issuing a STOPCADS command from the master console - ie replying to the Outstanding WTO - without being signed onto Dispatch first of all - hence the *UNKNWN* user.
