Personally I would submit both to batch. If I had to choose between the options given, I would want my monitor job running before the save starts, therefore option one. I will also mention that I never shut down TCP or the QPGMR subsystem. This is the back door to save having to drive in when there is a problem. What you need to shut down to achieve a good backup depends on what you are backing up. An ALLUSR backup probably only needs the Management Central server down (and your user jobs, of course.) A SAV needs anything that locks IFS objects to be down.

Not that I'm doubting you, but why would I want to use option 1 (SAVxxx interactive, monitor in batch) as opposed to option 2 (monitor interactive, SAVxxx in batch)? Am I not thinking of something obvious? Thanks. -- Jeff Crosby Dilgard Frozen Foods, Inc. P.O. Box 13369 Ft.
