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

I’m assuming this is for BRMS (you didn’t specify)

I would have to know exactly what you are seeing on “display control group entries” screen to be of more help.

In general terms, you will likely see things like
*EXIT – runs an exit program. Press F11 to see the exit command
*SAVSECDTA – Save Security Data – should be user accounts and authorities
*SAVCFG – Saves the configuration (system values, etc)
*ALLUSR – Saves all “user” libraries (Prod and Test)
*IBM – Saves the IBM Libraries
*ALLDLO – Saves document libraries
*LINK – Saves IFS Directories and Files
*SAVSYS – Saves the System

You could also have a specific library name or a “List” name. Lists are defined using option #5 on the Backup Planning menu.

There is actually extensive help text on the edit option for the control groups.

Regards
Mike

    With the *EXIT you can run most any OS command, also CALL. This would enable you to STOP certain applications before Backing up its libraries, start the app. after Backup and go on to a next step in your backup procedure. we for example run BRMS (STRBKUBRM) from a CL program so we can control which control group to start based on the name of the day. This program also monitors for BRMS errors so our system is ready to use even after some unexpected errors in BRMS (eg Tape errors) Peter
