Loyd,

 I know this is not what you asked but have you considered looking into
products such as
Help Systems Robot/Save or IBM's BRMS.  Not only do they have the means to
automate but the
Restore reports they generate are invaluable documents if a recovery (big or
small) is needed.

Just my $.02

Subject: More automated backup

Recent events have prompted me in looking beyond the AS/400's built-in
backup facilities.

I currently have a skeleton for my own custom backup program -
hopefully a CL-only solution. I'm reading a list of libraries to save
from a file, ending SBS QINTER so no one can sign on, running the
SAVLIB command for my libraries, and then restarting QINTER.

I do have a few questions:

1. After ENDSBS QINTER OPTION(*IMMED), I am issuing a DLYJOB 600 to
wait for 10 minutes. How do I know if and when QINTER ends?

2. What kind of error trapping should I use? I know a bit about CL but
the MONMSG stuff is a little confusing at times.

Thanks for any info,
 - lg -
