I agree. This backup is for daily data (back office) only. Major
backups occur on a weekly and monthly basis. Problem is everyone is
still signed onto the system, and that doesn't guarantee a clean
backup. And, no one is in the office (back office, not casino) at 3:00
am. (The casino system has its own backup procedures provided by the
software vendor. We do full system saves every month.)

I have been using CL programs for quite a while, but not for reasons
that I'd need to use MONMSG. I intend to test my backups in the early
evening, before the "normal" AS/400 backup kicks in. I am still
assured a backup.

Agreed!
