Automated AS400 Backup Procedure
Posted on 2012-04-10
Presently, the process to backup our AS400 requires several steps. User must log on to pc console. User must start operations console if it is not already running. User must open session. User must initialize tape. Then user runs OPTION 21 (save entire system) from the SAVE MENU. I would like to automate this. Has anyone else done this? If so, do you have a procedure I could use as a starting point?
Job should be scheduled
Job should start when system is IPL'd or restarted
Job should initialize tape
Job should save files
Jobe should send msg to specified operator
