Thanks for everyone's suggestions.

A couple follow up questions/statements:

1. If I create a custom script as suggested by a few, are there any potential issues when our partner attempts to restore using the Option 21 Restore?

2. I'm a little hesitant to have our operator changing the system value - especially if he forgets. Also, I'm somewhat sure our SOX auditors wouldn't be too thrilled with the idea of operators changing system values

3. The DUPTAP option... Does this require a second tape drive?


Thanks for everyone's input!

David

Subject: RÃp. : Option 21 Save - QSTRUPPGM

There are 2 things you could do:

First, as was suggested by someone else, change the start up program to *NONE before doing the option 21 and reset it before doing the IPL.

Second, instead of doing 3 full saves, do just one and the dulicate the tape (DUPTAP command).

HI All,

On a monthly basis we run a full system (option 21) save and IPL our system. To do this, we have an operator who manually brings the system into a restricted state, goes to the save menu and executes option 21. As part of the option 21, when the save completes, it starts the controlling subsystem which then executes the qstruppgm. As I mentioned earlier, we IPL the system after the save finishes but our operator is having to wait for the system to start, then end back to a restricted state before he can IPL the system. It's been awhile since I have been through the option 21 save options, and I've done some reading online, but there doesn't appear to be an option to bypass the startup. Can anyone suggest a way around this?

Also, we are preparing for our DR test this December and want to execute 3 consecutive option 21 saves (2 to send to out DR partner, 1 to keep). As you can image, if the system starts after each one it would add a lot of time to this procedure. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks,

David Charmatz
