AS400E Backup

Jesterx69 asked
Last Modified: 2007-12-19
     I have a client that has an AS400e server.  They are using PC's with terminal emulation to access the server.  They are trying to perform a full system but are having trouble completing this.  When they login as QSECOFR and select option 21 in backup is says that this can't be done through a passthrough job.  I am sure that they are connecting from a console since they are using a Green Screen terminal for this and it is the only one live when an IPL is performed.  Is there a way to perform a backup during an system IPL?  I am willing to pay anyone that can help me with this situation.
