How to determine the AS/400 is completely recovered?

AS/400 backup
Hi, we are running a Disaster Recovery test and for auditing purposes, we need to hav a log which says the system is completely recovered to the date of DR. We do have all the history logs but as mentioned is there a way to show the proof as such with a screen or completion message?Thanks in advance x

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

That depends on how you performed your DR test.
Are you using an HA product such as iTera or Mimix? If so, their software will produce such a report.
If you did an old fashioned save then restore from tape to another system, then the job which performed the restore will display if all objects were restored successfully.

    I suspect that you'll need to supply us with a list of things that you need recovered before anyone can tell you how to determine that it's completed. E.g., would you expect every LPP and option to be exactly the same, including PTFs and their statuses, even if you had once installed a LPP for evaluation and never licensed it? Is this a DR to a replacement system in the same or a different location? Same or different network? Is it a recovery of the whole system image or a recovery of applications and users only? Is this a HA scenario? Are there LPARs involved? Can you at least give an overview of what your system(s?) is today, what the basic DR actions are from your plan and what the new system(s?) is like? (Are they even AS/400s? Or are they one of the successors? How old or new are they? What OS VRM?) Tom

    HI, Just to be more brief , We have i550 machine and we are going to recover this to a 825 machine supplied by recovery centre providers, so its a different location. We will be using the old fashioned Save/Restore way to recover the whole system as such from the FULL system saves.A single partition yes. Please let me know if any more queries. Thanks

    Scan your joblogs for the word "not" or "failed" or do object counts. The most likely cuprits to not restore are logicals that are alphabetically ahead or in a library ahead of the physical, so if you have data libraries separate from program libs you may want to review those portions of the joblogs most carefully.
