We have one single threaded Job Queue which we run all of our Batch Jobs.

We would like to set up our iSeries Backup Job to run in its own Job Queue.  

Does anyone know how to set that up?

Thanks in advance!

Sure.  Create a new job queue (CRTJOBQ command), attaching it to the subsystem you want the job to run in (QBATCH, for example) using the ADDJOBQE command.

Submit a test job to make sure it works OK.  

Also make sure the MAXJOBS parameter on the subsystem is set high enough to allow the jobs to all start.  For example, if you have 5 job queues attached to QBATCH, and each allows one job at a time, you'll need to make sure you have MAXJOBS(5) or better. (CHGSBSD command)
