How do I find all files locked in a specified set of libraries, to ensure my backups run?
Posted on 2009-02-20
I am trying to determine how I can obtain a quick report of all files locked in a specific set of libraries. The reason I need this is that I never know util after my backup runs whether or not there is a lock on a file. Once the backup is complete, then it's a major issue in some cases to backup only the files that were missed because of file locks. I have been supporting this AS400 for 6 years and I know enough to keep it running, but am in no way a guru and have not had any significant training on all the commands and how to use them. It just seems to me that there should be a way to do this.
