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

Everything you wanted to know about your backup procedure can be found on the IBM website. They have a check list for every step for a complete save.

    I generally execute a PWRDWNSYS RESTART(*YES).

    Agree with Splat - RESTART(*YES) only takes a couple of minutes longer than starting the controlling subsystem again, and it ensures that you get regular IPL's (even though they aren't strictly necessary like in Windows).

    Like the others mentioned, the PWRDWNSYS RESTART(*YES) is the easiest way. Depending on how often you IPL your system, it might be a good time to do it after a complete system save. Years ago a lot of place would IPL once a week. Not necessary today but the IPL still needs to be done on occasion.

    We still IPL weekly and gain back 3-6% of our total disk space by doing the IPL.

    Please execute PWRDWNSYS command and IPL the system.
