Hi James

I did something similar for our Ops department to run the backups. We
have our production data mirrored to the development box, where the
backups are done, but routines need to be run on both boxes to
synchronise the halt of the replication process while the backups are
going. I ended up with everything done from the dev box, using data
queue entries sent from both local and remote processes back to the
monitor routine. The CL program has that same data queue attached to the
display file, so it can run in auto refresh mode, displaying the
messages as they appear in a rolling subfile. The whole thing seems to
work well, so I think your idea above is a good 'un.

The code for the above, if anyone's interested, is at
http://www.dbg400.net/samples at the end of the Usenet section.

Regards, Martin
