A connection via the ASCII workstation controller will work in a 
restricted state.  NOT a CAWin connection, but as a terminal 
such as VT100.  Of course if your connection should drop in the 
middle of the SAVSYS, you'd be sunk.

Another method to accomplish this stuff off hours is to put it 
all in a CL program.  Then start the program from the console. 
 A sample (by no means complete!  This is something I just typed 
from memory) program follows:

pgm

chgmsgq qsysopr *break sev(95) /* Get QSYSOPR, only want very 
severe msg's! */

chktap tap01    /* make sure there is a tape in the drive! */

inztap tap01 check(*no) /* initialize it */

dlyjob rsmtime(2300)    /* wait till 11pm tonight. */

endsbs *all *immed

dlyjob dly(600)         /* wait 10 mintues for the end to restricted */

savsys tap01            /* save the operating system */
savdlo                  /* save QDLS documents */
savlib *nonsys          /* save all non-OS librarys
sav                     /* save IFS */

pwrdwnsys *immed restart(*yes)

endpgm

Hi:

On the versions of OS/400 that I currently use, the system must 
be in a
restricted state to perform a SAVSYS and SANNONSYS.  This would 
preclude
any remote connection that I know of.

Sorry,

- CA TCP/IP via ISP or direct SLIP dialin

- any TELNET client
