We are phasing out our operator and was curious if anyone has a proven full system backup that is run from the job scheduler.

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

Hi,

What sort of system do you want to do the backup on? Do you mean PC / Unix / i-series / Mainframe?

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

You could write a CLP that will back up just about everthing but the system. Use this to write a cl that will backup all user data, Then you only have to do a full system save quartely or whenever you update PTF’s.

SAVCFG
SAVLIB LIB(*ALLUSR) ACCPTH(*YES)
SAVDLO DLO(*ALL) FLR(*ANY)
SAV DEV('/QSYS.LIB/media-device-name.DEVD') +
OBJ(('/*') ('/QSYS.LIB' *OMIT) +
('/QDLS' *OMIT) +
('/QIBM/ProdData' *OMIT) +
('/QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData' *OMIT))1 +
UPDHST(*YES)

If you’re talking about backing up an AS400/iSeries/System i5 then you can’t run a full system save from the job scheduler as the system has to be in a restricted state so it has to be run interactively from the system console.

I have a tool I wrote many years ago called BNCSYS which could be given a start time and would then put the system into a restricted state before running the backups.

Hope it helps
