    I'm not aware of any "command" that would do it other than ENDRQS or ENDJOB. If SAVSYS is running in a terminal session, then the usual SysRq-option 2 should be appropriate. That option runs a ENDRQS command in the job. From a different job, ENDJOB should work.

    If running interactive from a console I'd do what Raven suggested the SYSREQ 2 to end the job. Then proceed with the IPL.

    Of course, it doesn't mean that the SAVSYS operation will end any time soon. If it's down in some long running internal system function, it still won't actually terminate until it reaches an appropriate boundary where it can attend to the end request. It might run almost as long with the only real difference that it doesn't have a successful completion.

    There may be a very slim possibility that it could actually take longer since it has to run extra code simply to process the abnormal termination.

    If you are finding that you no longer have the allotted time to run the SAVSYS, I'd check your files out to see why it's taking longer. Was a new library added? Was there a refresh of test data? Did a user have a query that went awry and built a huge database? Yes is will take more time as you disk usage goes up but you should not see a spike unless there is a major change. You could always check disk usage before the SAVSYS to look for abnormalities and adjust the time accordingly.
