This works for us, backs up all DB2 data (BPCS, for example), all the Windows servers we have running in the iSeries on both internal INS cards as well as the external xSeries ones, as well as the Domino and file serving data and apps that we run via NetServer (far better file server security than using Windows & NTFS for file serving). Do your system save (SAVSYS) to tape (to recover OS & such and TCP going again) then save the rest this way. Easy to do, minimizes downtime, provides off-site backup, low cost (PC disk is cheap). Of course, you do need enough disk space on the iSeries to save to the save file.

Date: Thu, 31 Jan 2002 11:53:11 -0600 Organization: Airxcel, Inc. Reply-To: email@example.com I have never seen this actually work, but I thought I had heard of a backup process utilizing network connections. In other words overnight I could backup some portion of my AS/400 in a different location via some WAN link. Has anybody done something like this? Obviously it could take an immense amount of bandwidth, but is it feasible? Would it be possible utilizing some type of disk synchronization?
