We've come across a problem when we save to a *SAVF on our iSeries. We use the save to save files a lot on our system and it's always worked fine. In the last few weeks however, the system has crashed twice (with an immediately re-IPL after abnormal system end) when saving to save files and gives a message that the save file is damaged. We've deleted the damaged saves file both times to be sure that it doesn't cause the same problem again. Luckily this has been limited to our test system until now, but we're a bit nervous that this will also happen on our live system.
We're running on V5R4M0 with the latest PTF's applied. We've put a call in to IBM for this but heard nothing as yet. Has anbody else come across this problem? Has anyone got any ideas that could help?
Thanks in advance,
