I would set up a list in BRMS and only save the out queues you really care
about. Then specify the spool list in your control group.

Consider running the spool save separately from the other saves. First it's
not really referentially important and secondly you can use a tape just for
spool data, and keep appending to it until it's full. Then move on to the
next one. Spool data can be saved almost anytime so I'd pick a time when
it's convenient to run it.

Subject: BRMS Saving of Spooled Files Question


We implemented BRMS 3 months ago and it has been great !! (wish we would
have done it sooner).

We are doing a complete data centre move next month (oh yay) and normally I
do not include saving of any spooled files. I want to include saving them
all in the Full backup just prior to the move (just in case).

I did a Full monthly unattended system backup this Sunday as I wanted to
test this prior. I changed my control group attribute "Save spooled file
data" from *none to *ALL. Is this all I had to do or am I missing something

How do I tell if my spooled files got backed up ? I did a wrksplfbrm,
but there is nothing showing. Doing wrkmedibrm on the full backup media,
but I don't save object level detail so no help there.

Our OS is V7.1 Cume TL13298 and group SF99362 at level 28

Thanks !
