Jill, when the AS/400 was first shipped the default controlling subsystem was QBASE and bearing in mind this was years ago, as I recall everything ran in there. 99% of sites split batch and interactive jobs into different subsytems. This is where we talk about QCTL, QBATCH, QINTER etc. In order to achieve this, system value QCTLSBSD needs to be set to QCTL rather than QBASE. I suspect that the whole BACKUP menu is designed around the fact that QCTL will be your controlling subsystem.
