Tape Backups
We are using a iSeries to run a Qualcomm QTracs system. We have a job scheduled to run every M-F at 2am that will stop the subsystem on QTracs and then perform some backups to a tape and then start the subsystem again. When looking at the messages from this morning (General system tasks-->Display system operator messages), there is an entry that states "Not all files were backed up. See system log for details." I am trying to find the system log that it refers to, and also trying to find more info about the error, specifically which libraries were/weren't backed up. Thanks

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

You’ve hopefuily found your answer to this question but in any event, the system log is the history log (DSPLOG). You could also check the joblog of the batch or interactive job that runs your backup.

    You should also check the job log from the scheduled job that runs the backup. It might be helpful to turn on all logging for that job for a day or two to get all the details. Regards Mike

    Checking the History Log is one thing you can do. DSPLOG JOB(Backup) MSGID(CPF3701 CPF3741) Another option is to have your Backup commands create output files and checking those files. This could be handy if you needed to create a procedure to make a copy of unsaved objects anyway. Peter

    If possible, enable the SAVACT parameter on your SAVxxx command.

    To be complete after a full system save you can check the systemlog for all the appropriate messages which are DSPLOG PERIOD(('savetime' 'date of save')) MSGID(CPC3702 CPC3707 CPC370C CPC9410) then you get the completion messages of the SAVSYS SAVLIB (nonsys) SAVDLO ans SAV commands. If you get 4 answers all the save were OK. Eduard
