Al,

You said:
>> Warning, do not create tapes as TGTRLS(V3R2) that will be restored 
to a RISC system, because they will need to be re-encapsulated after 
the restore to RISC.<<

You can get around this by saving all of your *PGM objects to 2 save 
files: One with TGTRLS(V3R7) and the other with TGTRLS(V3R2).

Then in your install program, select the appropriate one to restore 
based on the machines release level.  This greatly improves 
performance on the RISC boxes.

Another problem is restoring PGM objects created on a RISC box to a 
CISC box.  When you do this, you go thru a RISC to CISC 
conversion...and this conversion can be VERY SLOW...particularly if it 
is a small machine.

Bob
