Nancy--- It's not a big deal really.

To ensure it goes off without a hitch hust get your batches closed out,
clear up the *ABEND jobs (if you are on R5) and kick everyone off the
system and make sure there aren't any object locks on SYSCTL.

One way to ensure this is to end the QINTER and QSERVER subsystems and
start it back up post backup.

Thank you everyone for the information. This is the first time I have
to run a scheduled backup on a Mapics environment at a time of day that
doesn't allow someone in IT to check everything prior to going home for
the day so we're learning as we go.
Nancy Carson

Yes, PRTIMTXR is in our ROBOT process.

Here is the CL for it.

Yes I have the code, have to dig it up although I think Nick is in the
right direction by simply changing the stat field.

As far as the IM transaction register there is an XA command that will
do it, I think it's PRTIMTXR. Let me circle back with the details.


Hi Nancy,

Just create a program to change the field BSTAT in file AMTLIB/INTRC
from
a 'S', or 'A', to a 'C'.

We have a program that runs out of ROBOT every 1/2 hour that runs the
IM Transaction Register.




Thanx,

Nick

I would be interested in that little RPG program if you would be
willing to share it. I have an occasional problem with our users
forgetting to run the Inventory Register at the end of their day OR
leaving an Inventory Batch in Suspend status. Then the scheduled
backup doesn't run. Does your program also run the Inventory Register

in addition to closing batches?
Thank you
Nancy

Weston--- Silly question: Are you having problems getting dedicated
mode for your backups?

Are you using AP/AR/GL or IFM?

You do need to have your IM batches closed out, but you can do that
with a little RPG pgm.

Hello All.

I have a CAS question.

Currently we are R7.8 and we do our nightly save the old fashion way.

We use the Mapics nightly save optional.

My question is, what type of batches (i.e. AP , AR , GL ,, etc)

can be suspended and still get a save?



Thanks

Weston
