Re: SAVSAVF IFS



fixed

Hi Jerry

I was confused by the use of SAVSAVF at first - there is no such command.

SAVSAVFDTA has all the explanation in the help text - although it's a little unclear, perhaps - here it is -

The Save Save File Data (SAVSAVFDTA) command saves the contents of a save file to tape or optical media. This command saves the save data in the save file to the device in a way that allows you to restore objects directly from the device.

The key bit, I think, is that it "... saves the save data IN the save file...", not the SAVF object.

We are saving the IFS to a SAVF and then

SAVSAVFDTA SAVF(IFSBAK/IFSSAV) DEV(&TAPE)

so

It looks like we can just do a RST from the tape.

If SAVSAVFDTA is used the save file is put onto tape in the exact way a
straight save command would have put it onto tape without the save file in
the middle. So the restores from tape would be just that, restores from
tape.

If the save file is saved with SAVOBJ then the save file needs to be
restored first, then do the restore from the save file.

It all depends on how the save file was put onto tape.

Device for the SAV ro RST would be like
DEV('/QSYS.LIB/MYLIB.LIB/SAVFNAME.FILE')

Normally when you do a RST it looks for the file label like SAV20140809.

How does your example know to look for my SAVSAVF which is on the tape?

Jerry,

Here's an IFS restore example from tape and savf.

RST DEV('/QSYS.LIB/TAPMLB01.DEVD') OBJ(('/www/test')) VOL(001038)

RST DEV('/qsys.lib/mailtool.lib/ifsconfig.file')
OBJ(('/bvstools/mailtool/*')) CRTPRNDIR(*YES)
PRNDIROWN(*PARENT)

When you do a SAVSAVF of the IFS to a tape which is the reciprocal
restore command for the IFS objects?

For db2 object you would use RSTOBJ.

I am not seeing how to handle restoring IFS.
