Where can I find the steps to scratch a system to the point of ready to reload from entire system save?  I believe it is a control panel Function 23 or 24 but I have not found the correct document.

Thanks,

Nick

    Can you clarify? AFAIK, the system is always "to the point of ready to reload from entire system save"... assuming that you're comfortable wiping out everything that's already on the system. Are you simply cleaning a system? Or are you wanting to scratch and load a system? Tom

    A few years ago, after an OS upgrade, I had an application that did not work. We had to reload. I didn't keep the steps that were taken. The system was on the new ver/rel and thought everything was fine. The application did not work due to its GUI interface needed an upgrade and reconfiguration. What are the steps needed to scratch/install? Is there a way to change the default option for save spool data to *all on the option 21 entrire system save?

    Nick, You can use Option 20 from the Go SAVE Menu to change the defaults. Hope this helps, Bill Poulin

    First: A few years ago, after an OS upgrade, I had an application that did not work. We had to reload. I didn’t keep the steps that were taken. The system was on the new ver/rel and thought everything was fine. The application did not work due to its GUI interface needed an upgrade and reconfiguration. Second: What are the steps needed to scratch/install? Third: Is there a way to change the default option for save spool data to *all on the option 21 entrire system save? Without wanting to seem difficult, I'm trying to tie all of those together and tie all three into the question. What exactly are you needing to accomplish? What business problem are you trying to solve? What system are you wanting to reload? Tom
