What type of Save While Active do you use?  How long
does it take?  What are the size of your libraries and
what type of backup device do you use?  Do you think
this is a good strategy for everyone?  Thanks for your
response.

Am I the only one on this list who is wondering why
anyone should care
about active batches in this day and age?   When
Save While Active came
out about 8-10 years ago, I stopped using the
archaic MAPICS backup and
simple saved the appropriate libraries using SWA. 
There has never been
any problem doing it that way. I know the MAPICS
backup does a couple of
insignificant household cleaning choirs so what. 

And wacking someone's batch into another status with
a quick and dirty
program -- well isn't that a bit extreme?   Or how
about sending them a
break message giving them 10 minutes to get out. 
Then terminate their
sessions.   Ya - let's do that too.  NO better yet
let's end the QINTER
subsystem.    The users really love it when you mess
with them.

Just my opinion,
Greg

Good questions.  Simply closing everything gives you
a
good backup but questionable data.  I err on the
side
of good data and rerun the backup the next evening
after resolving the questionable batchs.

This is addressed to everyone who is
programmatically closing IM
batches.   What happens if someone is actively in
a
batch?  What about
unapplied records?  What if the ujob was down and
none of the RM's
processed?  What else do you check before you
change
the batch status to
a C?   


Thanks,

We have a program that does this it also generates
a
report of which
batches it closed, works perfect with no problems
on
R5 and R7. If you
want a copy of the RPG source let me know.

Every night we have an operator go through
suspended
batches and close
them through the Mapics interface and DFU active
batches that are hung
to suspend them to allow them to be manually
closed.
 What problems
would I face if I wrote a program to change the
batch status on all
suspended or "hung active" batches to closed? 
Following the change I
would run the transaction register as usual to get
the to finished
status.

Your feedback is appreciated,
