Speaking as someone who has done several complete unload/reloads from one iSeries to another, yes option 21 does save everything except for spool files, contents of data queues and some other odd things like that. I've always used this as an excuse to delete all spool files. Although a few users who make really good cookies are taught how to send their spool files to another 400 and send them back on Monday. Standard disclaimer - Use two backups in case the tape goes bad. However it's been years since we've had enough time in our window to do that. (Don't do what I do - do what I say.)

Does the "ENTIRE SYSTEM" option (21) save both system stuff (e.g. usrprf, authority, config) as well as system and user libraries? If, heaven forbid, a restore situation arises, can all of the appropriate commands (e.g. rstaut, rstconfig, rstusrprf, rstlib, rstobj, rstdoc, etc.) be executed from that tape without any extra considerations? Does option 22, Save System data, perform the equivalent of the old SAVSYS? If not, what option on this menu does? Thanks much.
