What command would I use to write an IFS file to tape and delete it on a daily basis?

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

This command will save your entire IFS:

SAV DEV(‘qsys.lib/tap01.devd’) OBJ((‘/*’) (‘/QSYS.LIB’ *OMIT) (‘/QDLS’ *OMIT))

For a specific directory, use a variant of this:

SAV DEV(‘qsys.lib/tap01.devd’) OBJ((‘/yourdirectory*’ *INCLUDE))

You can use RMVLNK to delete a specific file if that was your question:

RMVLNK OBJLNK(‘/yourdirectory/file.xml’)
