we've saved our production box, and restore it to a Disaster Recover box. the amount of DASD used is about 450Gig less than our prod box. everything seems to have restored (files, programs, logicals, ifs files, etc). restore sys and non-sys... can't figure out what the extra 400gig is on our prod box...? anyone have any ideas? no issues, just curious.

Software/Hardware used:
as400 / os400

    You should run the RTVDSKINF and RTVDIRINF commands on both systems. Then compare the results to see where the discrepancies are. Tom

    turned out to be Security Audit Journal Receivers in qsys… Glad it was found. Note that the receivers shouldn't be generated into QSYS. You should plan a cutover date and start generating against a new receiver chain in a new library. Create a library for these, create the next journal receiver in it and run CHGJRN to point to the new receiver and library. The new library should be part of your regular backup schedule. When the receivers are being backed safely, also set MNGRCV( *SYSTEM ) and DLTRCV( *YES ). That should help from having a similar situation from happening in the future. Tom

    You cannot imagine how glad I am that I read my daily email for the latest on this forum. After seeing this thread we cleaned out the security audit journal receivers (that began in 2005!). The disk space used (DSPSYSSTS) dropped from 84% to 42.01%. We are returning new drives that were recently purchased but not yet installed. Simply amazing!
