One might also consider asking their business partner if, by chance, they
are entitled to BRMS (Backup Recovery and Media Services). Many times
throughout the years IBM threw it in as part of various package deals. I
am entitled to it, and even have it loaded, but never used it. Probably,
because like many, I feel that our backup is just so unique.
However if you delve into BRMS it does print a report every day on how you
could restore, which tape volumes when, all the way from bare metal.
If you do wish to consider save while active, then you have to consider
transaction boundaries, etc.
