I have a "SAVALL" program to do this, along with options to RCLSTG and
RCLDLO, and a SIGNOFF or optionally an IPL when finished.
It assumes the backup will NOT require a tape change to continue (takes
default to Inquiry messages so it won't hang half way - although you can
change that if you plan to have someone change the tapes).

If anyone is interested in obtaining a copy, email me PRIVATELY !

You could write a CL program to do this.  Here's a basic outline:

DLYJOB until you want it to start.
ENDSBS *ALL *IMMED to go to restricted state.
SAVSYS to save the system.
SAVLIB *NONSYS to save all non-system libs.
SAVDLO to save the QDLS file system.
SAV to save any other file systems you may have in the IFS.
