RE: how to escalate IBM software support ticket



fixed

Jim,

I would wait till the conversion is done building.
Trying to save IFS objects in use does lead to issues.
SWA does not apply to IFS objects.

We did a similar 3995 conversion two years ago, once converted, results were good.

BRMS no (but planned)
SAV DEV('/QSYS.LIB/TAP06.DEVD') OBJ(('/*') +
('/QSYS.LIB' *OMIT) ('/QDLS' *OMIT)) +
SAVACT(*YES) SAVACTOPT(*ALL) +
ENDOPT(*LEAVE) UPDHST(*YES)

The image catalogs are our conversion of 3995 Image Drive cartridges (350 platters x 2 sides = 700 catalog entries) using IBM Services api for conversion. We have 8 image catalogs each with 100 catalog entries (representing each platter side) This conversion is still building - it's close to a terrabyte of images Jim

Jim,

A few questions.
BRMS - yes or no?
How are saving IFS, QALLUSRLNK, *LINK, or other
SWA - yes or no?

Not wanting to start a rant or war, but what to do when a critical issue
has finished two days of emails back & forth but nowhere near a
resolution.
No recommendation. Repeated request for them to call. This is first time I
started ticket via web site.
We failed 2 days in a row (each w/different tapes) to complete a SAV, with
tape media errors, when we changed *ALWSAV attribute on image catalogs
directory to *Yes. It made tape unusable for next step SAVLIB. All works
again when we change ALWSAV back to *NO on that directory. So far they
have said the published ptfs in this area don't match the issue.
We will test new hardware coming in next week, and I can't get a full save
to complete...
Jim
