First, we're on V5R1. So this may be (oh, heck, IS) an issue.

Every night I save a copy of our data library to a test library, which I can
use for testing (no partitions). The test library is then saved to a save
file. I can restore the test library from the save file, if my tests, well,
screw up.

I don't often have to restore it in the middle of the day, but it does
happen. In fact, today I've done it twice (bad day). Obviously things go a
little slow (to put it mildly) during the restore. But even after my
command returns to the menu, there are still jobs running that are building
indices. WRKACTJOB shows:

Subsystem/Job User Type CPU % Function Status



The restore is done by, first, clearing the library. Then doing a RSTOBJ to
the test library. Is there a better, quicker way to do this? I never
noticed this before (i.e., on other systems on which I have worked using the
same technique), but I would have thought (erroneously it seems) that the
indices would have simply been restored from the save file, instead of
under-going a complete rebuild. The LFs are in the save file. The disks
are mirrored.
