The simplest approach is to save to a savefile, on the AS/400, then save the
savefile to tape during the day. Do you have enough empty disk space to
accomplish this?

The command would be SAVLIB LIB(libname) DEV(*SAVF)  SAVF(savefile)

The save file will have to be created before you run this command.

To copy the savefile to tape use   SAVSAVFDTA SAVF(savefile) DEV(TAPxx)

I am not that ambitious, yet.

I asked the question with the idea of backing up the AS/400 to this device
at night, possibly duplicating over WAN/internet to another box, and
spooling to tape during the day.  The LPAR concept sounds good, although
wouldn't I have to buy another license of OS/400 to do it?
