Go Save backup question

Backup and Recovery
I use GO SAVE, Option 21 for full backup - and set to run unattended at 23:55:00. When I come in the console says "errors running this command". When I check the DSPLOG, it shows that all but 22 objects not saved. question: is there a way for me to look at the files selected for saving and "files" not being saved?

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

Look in de joblog spooled file and search for message identifier CPF3741 and CPF3761. This will show you the unsaved objects.


If the console job is still active, the easiest way to search is to enter the DSPJOBLOG OUTPUT(*PRINT) command at the console. The joblog will then be printed and you can search the spooled joblog.

BTW. if you are running a full system save, you’ll be running in restricted state. It’s almost certain that anything that can’t be backed up won’t be needed for restore.

    When you run the Go Save Option 21 by default all libraries are saved. When you sign off the console try signoff, F4 and use *list for job log option. This will produce a rather large spool file with all the details. You can then search that joblog for objects not saved.

    You can use the DSPOBJD cmd to find out which files are not been saved during your BACKUP Use following selections for the DSPOBJD cmd OBJ > *ALL > *ALL OBJTYPE > *ALL te DETAIL > *FULL ASPDEV * OUTPUT > *OUTFILE OUTFILE ourname ourlibl OUTMBR *FIRST *REPLACE This job will run a longer time, after finished you can use the RUNQRY cmd or create a Query with the WRKQRY Tool for the above created file ourname/ourlib and look for a different date in the field ODADAT(save date while active - look for your dateformat DDMMYY or MMDDYY or whatever) to your starting date of your backup, took care of the pm/am change or the 2400 time in central europe, maybe you must increase our selection also to the next day.

    When you select option 21, it performs a SAVSYS, SAVLIB, SAVDLO & SAV. Make sure your SAVLIB has the options of OUTPUT *PRINT and INFTYPE *OBJ. Then review the reports, it will tell you for each libraries which objects are saved and which ones are not.
