I really hate to say this, but I really meant it when I said that the only
keyboard in the vicinity of the AS400 is attached to a PC, then goes to the
400.  Maybe something strange about the way it was set up.

Well, it looks then like I can't use this option to back up the system.
Guess I'll have to look for something else.  (Sigh.)  Thanks all.  You'd
think backups should be relatively straightforward.  Thanks, Murphy.

On the command line type
WRKACTJOB
and press Enter.
This will display the Work with Active jobs screen.
There are numerous columns.
Under the column
Subsystem/Job
you should see the following
QBATCH - for jobs run in batch
QCMN - communications subsystem
QCTL - the control subsystem. This is where you should see your User Profile
(in this case QSECOFR) under the User column
QINTER - the Interactive subsystem. If you see your profile (in this case
QSECOFR) under the User column after this subsystem - you are NOT at the
console. Therefore option 21 - Full system save - should NOT work. You need
to sign on at the console, usually near where the AS/400.

Thanks for the response, Richard.  Uh oh...What is "qinter"?  I don't find
that in the index, and I'm hoping it's a typo.  Also, we don't have anything
set up as a "console".  We are accessing it via Client Access from another
PC.  I am doing this from the QSECOFR id, which is supposed to have all the
access necessary based on the Backup and Recovery manual.

Ahhh the learning curve.

 Two things come to mind;
1.  The system needs to be in a restricted state i.e. qinter should be
ended, thereby making it necessary to perform this function from the
console.
2.  The authority level of the person that is perfoming this may be
incorrect.  It has been a while for me, but at a minimum I believe that you
will need *savsys specified on the special authority field for the user that
is perfoming this task.  You may also need *allobj authority but I can't
swear to that one.
