I ran Go save Option 21 yesterday on our new Iseries. Its running V5R4M0. Then last night I set up the daily backup to run in GO BACKUP, it saved over 4000 objects but for some reason wouldnt backup 39 objects. 5 of them in QUSRSYS (QAOKP01a and 4 others with similar names), also in QMPGDATA - 34 all starting with QAPM***. Why were these not backed up, where they active, should I set up the backup to omit these? Also my backup schedule is going to go GO SAVE option 21 once a month, and then GO BACKUP daily Mon-FRI. Is that a good way to go, or does someone have a better idea? Thanks for your help.
