Thanks Dale. Will try this.

It's quite basic and simple. And it's complete, I used the tape regularly to
restore to my test environments. Just change TAPxx to whatever your tape device
is, and put whatever you want into the NEWOWNID field. The DSPTAP at the end
was to comply with Sarbannes-Oxley, but is a good idea anyway, as it shows the
date of the backup, and at least verifies that the libraries were backed up.

PGM

INZTAP DEV(TAPxx) NEWVOL(MSM001) NEWOWNID(whatever) +
CHECK(*NO) /* Initialize tape */

SAVSAVFDTA SAVF(AMSLIB/SVDTAABCKM) DEV(TAP01) +
ENDOPT(*LEAVE)

SAVSAVFDTA SAVF(AMSLIB/AMFBCKM) DEV(TAP01) +
ENDOPT(*LEAVE) /* Save AMFLIB */

SAVSAVFDTA SAVF(AMSLIB/AMTBCKM) DEV(TAP01) +
ENDOPT(*LEAVE) /* Save AMTLIB */

SAVSAVFDTA SAVF(AMSLIB/ZSVCTLBCKM) DEV(TAP01) +
ENDOPT(*REWIND)

DSPTAP DEV(TAP01) OUTPUT(*PRINT) ENDOPT(*UNLOAD) /* +
Generate tape directory listing for SARBOX */

ENDPGM

That makes things MUCH simpler. If you can do a backup to disk, then a later
save of the backup to tape, you should (emphasis on "should") be able to get the
XA backup done over a lunch break. I've been able to.

BTW - if you want, I can provide a quick save of the backup to tape that can be
added to the post-backup process, or placed in the job scheduler (which is how I
usually did it). Very easy.

Well, it looks like we are going to go with the offline mode of the data
collection software so I will be able to have some time to get the
dedicated backup. Yay! We are a solution by Integrated Barcoding
Systems. Thanks,

Barb,

Just how "24/7" do you actually have to be? I ask this because I know of
many
3 shift organizations that are nominally 24/7, but actually do a backup
each
night during 3rd shift lunch break. For example, if you use COM_Net and
MDCC,
both applications stay up for the users, but the transactions simply don't
post
until after the XA backups are completed. Ditto with non-XA applications,
for
example two of my accounts have add-on, in-house written IM transactions
done
through green-screen data collection, but those transactions simply wait
until
the backups are done.

This sounds interesting. I may have to try it. We do have source code
for XA.
