Dale,
        Did you think of changing the default of the SAVSAVFDTA command.   My 
idea is to change the default of OUTPUT parameter to *PRINT.   This will give 
you a printout of everything that is saved.  No need to re-mount or re-read the 
tape.

Michael,

We use a 3570 Magstar tape drive (fast when we bought it - sigh).  Tape
backups take 90 minutes, back to disk takes 30 minutes.  When I do the
MAPICS Copy disk backup to tape, the DSPTAP shows QTEMP, AMFLIB, AMTLIB.
If I do either of the options they gave me (SAVLIB of AMSLIB or SAVOBJ of
the required objects), it only shows AMSLIB.  I'd like it to match.

All our accounts that save to DISK just do a SAVLIB of AMSLIB. What
other things does MAPICS give you?

Just curious.. You do a save to disk because of the speed? How long does
your backup take? What tape drive do you use?

I know that if you are using the LTO drives, the save is almost as fast
as to DISK, and then you would be able to control the ejecting (which
you should always do) but before you do that, you can do a dsptap.

Subject: Automating backups





Hi everyone,

Our Sarbannes-Oxley auditor is requiring that we store a DSPTAP of our
MAPICS backups with each tape.  Currently, we run an unattended MAPICS
backup to disk (for speed) during the 3rd shift lunch break (3am).  Then
during 1st shift, I run the MAPICS "Save disk backup to tape" option.
Then I have to reload the tape and do a DSPTAP *PRINT to satisfy the
SARBOX people.

Unfortunately, the "Save disk backup to tape" is interactive only, and
it auto-ejects the tape at the end, which precludes me from using Robot
to do that portion (I have to reload the tape to get the DSPTAP
printout).

I asked the response line what that option does and was told to either
do a SAVLIB of AMSLIB, or SAVOBJ of the various objects in AMSLIB
(AMFBCKM, AMTBCKM, yadda, yadda), but that doesn't give me the same
thing that I get when I manually run the "Save disk backup to tape".

Has anyone on this thread written their own version of the "Save disk
backup to tape"?
