We have a network folder on our Windows workstation that contains word documents that we backup yearly. I have created a bat file to copy out just the 2006 files and put them in individual monthly folders (Jan2006, Feb2006, etc.). I would like to copy these folders to our optical library (3995-c42)for backup/Storage on our iSeries. Can this be done. If so can you provide detail info on the process. I am trying to do this all in a bat file or some other way that would automate the process. Thanks Cas

    Hi Cas You've got the right forum, but possibly nobody has experience of trying to do what you want. For what it's worth I don't think you could do it from with a BAT file on the PC/Server, I think you would need to do it as a two stage process: 1) From the PC (using a BAT file?) copy/move the documents to a folder in the IFS 2) On the iSeries include the IFS folder in your backup/save process to save the folder to the optical drive. I can't remember whether or not you can directly save documents from NFS mounted storage to an optical drive or not, but if so that may be an alternative route - i.e. mount some disks as NFS storage and save your documents there for backing up by the iSeries. Hope it helps, and good luck. Jonathan
