Hi,

You need to have the Physical file also to be saved in save file. Otherwise, You will face problem while restoring only logical file to different AS/400 server.

    It depends... How were they all saved? Are there any uncommon conditions such as different libraries for any of the logicals? The Information Center page on Restoring logical files covers most circumstances.

    In Case you use BRMS to restore the files the application will restore logical and physical files in one pass. It remembers the restores that went wrong and retries those at the end of restore processes. Otherwise restore the Based on physical first and any logical files next.

    The "Answer" is partly correct. LFs can be restored without restoring PFs in a couple ways.

    First, if the PF already exists, LFs can be restored by themselves. Ans second, in current OS releases, a DFRID() can be specified to allow restoring LFs even when the PF doesn't exist and hasn't been restored yet. The LFs will become available after their PFs are restored using the same DFRID().

    And beyond that, BRMS isn't actually required. BRMS helps in management of saves/restores and the media. Larger sites and sites that must track backup media find it useful.
