The biggest show stopper in playing with savf and object checksums is the system values introduced (or enhanced) in V5R1 (QVFYOBJRST, QALWOBJRST and friends) that lets the user force object retranslation/recreation on restore, or refuse restore altogether. This means that you may get the savf on to the box, but you'll have a hard, nigh on impossible, time getting objects - especially pgms et al - out of that savf still in the doctored state you want it to be. Of course, there is an exception to every rule, and if you can fake an IBM digital signature for you objects too, then some of the above restrictions are lessened. --phil BTW : From my investigations, I highly recommend everyone review and use these system value settings !
