Rick, At least for the Windows server running on the Integrated xSeries Server (aka FSIOP, IPCS, etc.) under V5R1, the contents of the servers will be saved in either case but by different methodologies. In the case of a save with the server(s) varied off, the storage space will be saved as a single object (faster). If the server is not varied off, the individual objects (within the Windows space) are saved (slower). In either case, there are some manual steps to take following system recovery from an option 21 Save; the servers will not just come back up. Some installations might be running services on their servers which they do not wish to bring down during a full system save. It is also possible that they could be using a Windows-based backup and recovery system and would be looking to perform their recovery using that.
