If V7R1 no longer uses savf, why does the object description state it was restored from QTEMP/OBCSAVF.
Object Connect is installed, but no jobs under QCMN subsystem.
We used to use AnyNet, now EE.
I think we dropped OptConnect back in 2008, it was chargeable item, replaced with Virtual Object Connect. no charge.
Looks like my Object Connect is running differently.

Now I'm confused.

Save/Restore information:
Save date/time . . . . . . . . . . . :
Restore date/time . . . . . . . . . : 09/29/15 02:50:03
Save command . . . . . . . . . . . . :
Device type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Save file
Save file . . . . . . . . . . . . . : QTEMP/OBCSAVF

I think you may have memories of an older version. SAVRSTxxx does not use save files or large working space.
<from V7R1 Info Center>
When you use an ObjectConnect command, the system moves the object directly to the target system without using save files or distribution queues.
ObjectConnect provides better performance than other methods for moving objects between systems, and ObjectConnect does not require additional disk space to store an intermediate copy of the object that is being moved.

Object Connect is free (but if not already installed, add it.
You have 3 options to connect:
.Local area network (LAN) or remote communications line with Advanced Program-to-Program Communication (APPC) and Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking (APPN*).
.LAN or remote communications line with Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) with AnyNet* or Enterprise Extender support.
.Fiber optic bus with OptiConnect.

We use the IP definitions and is fast. We are slightly smaller, maybe .3 Tb in a developer refresh, Saved & restored within 2 hours (Power 7+ single processor). The Save is while active.
We do save access paths so no rebuild. We do restore over the existing lib so 99.99% objects - only data is changing (we do argue over whether this is a good idea or not..).
It does start moving & restoring data before finished saving.
We do stop other processing in receiving partition.

Ditto SAVRSTOBJ and/or SAVRSTLIB for small amount of data.

However, large amounts of data. .5 tb could take long and use a large amount of temp space for the temporary savf.

Another solution, which we use often, is to do a RSTLIB or RSTLIBBRM from your latest production save.
We do a full save on Production every night, following the save RSTLIBBRM on DEV is run to refresh DEV.
We've automated the entire process, save is 2 hours, restore is 2 hours, P7
LTO5 fiber drives.

SAVRSTOBJ Hands down the best way for such things. Can be on line, can
be batch, scheduled etc. Maintains all attributes about the object.
