logical file and Physical File
I'm trying to save the LF......but i'm not sure..so just tired in Google  but Couldn't  get any  good result for saving a LF/PF to a tape. 
Can any body explain me how to save Logical file and Physical files individually  to a  tape volume?
like saving LF to MEDIA1 and saving PF to MEDIA2?

    Just use SAVOBJ. What problem are you having? But why would you want to save logical files separately from their associated physical files? Tom

    You may not be happy with the results of saving PFs and LFs on separate tapes. The downside is much greater than the upside. Keep in mind that unless you save the LFs with Save Access Path of *Yes, none of the access path data will be saved. This results in a very small object for each LF. It is quite efficient when saving objects. You pay the price when the object is restored, at which time the access path will be rebuilt. In our case, we do a lot more saving than restoring so we prefer the quicker saves.

    If the objects already exist on the system, you do not need to resrore the LF, Just restore the PF and the LF will automatically take carte of itself sinve it is a view over the PF.

    If i want to make sure PF are restore prior to restore LF. What action i need to take care ? At i 6.1 or later, it's not necessary to restore PFs before LFs. Review the RSTOBJ DFRID() parameter. And read through Restoring logical files to get some background. Tom
