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

If you save the user profiles to a *savf (SAVSYS) using the normal backup you should be able to restore it on the backup system the same way you would restore them from tape.

SAVSECDTA Save Security Data will backup the usr profile

You might also want to use ISeries Navigator to copy from one system to another. Go to Users & Group >All Users>Right click on the selected profile and click Send.

    If you only want the user profiles, check out the Save Security Data (SAVSECDTA) and the Restore User Profiles (RSTUSRPRF) commands

    System backup does not seem directly related to this thread. Please open a new question. Fully describe the problem that you need to solve in that new question. But note that explaining a system backup process is far too involved to answer here. You need to have someone do it who knows how backups work, or you will have too high a risk of not having any useful backup at all. -- Tom
