I can't speak to your experiences but I have done dozens of recovery
tests and I've only run into trouble with QUSRSYS or QGPL on very
limited cases, and not affecting TCP.
*SYNCLIB is a beast in that you have to get all the libraries in the
list to checkpoint at the same time. Important for some folks but if
you do not have user database objects (meaning non-IBM) in either
QUSRSYS or QGPL, I would not include them in the synch point. Saving
QUSRSYS and QGPL with a synch point of *LIB has always been successful
in the tests I have run. Again there may be some anomalies but as a
general rule the save works quite well.
A better reason to test your recovery I can't come up with. If you have
not tested your recovery, you don't have a reliable back up, regardless
of what the system says it put on tape, virtual or physical.
