Our AS400 usually does the day end routine automatically in the evening after the office is closed. We had an issue which we thought might me solved by setting off the back up manually. How long does this take? We set it off an hour ago and still cannot get back on. If we try opening a session it says we are connected but we do not get the usual sign on screen - please help!! What can I do to get my sign on screen back?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sounds like your Interactive subsystem is not started.
Sign on at the system console.
do WRKACTJOB to see what is going on.
you should be able to STRSBS QINTER (or whatever subsystem you use), then you will be able to use your other devices.

How did you set off your backup manually? Are you using the GO SAVE options, the GO BACKUP menu or a in house save program?
If you are submitting it manually, you should verify what else the backup does, in this case it appears to end QINTER and restart when complete. It may be shutting down other services that may have to be restarted as well or calls your QSTRUPPGM program.

    Nobody can tell you how long your backup will last. You (your operations staff, your administrators, whoever) are the only one among us who has any clue. If your backup shuts off interactive access, it'll probably start it back up when it finishes. Two hours? Six hours? Whatever it usually takes. Most sites would have either joblogs or history logs that would indicate how long. The suggestion to logon at the console might be worthwhile for peace of mind. Or it might be needed if your backup really doesn't include starting things back up. Tom
