Savrstlib Not Releasing After Job Completed on Source System

We are currently trying to use the savrstlib command between our source and target iSeries systems.  The transfer happens successfully; however, on the source system we need to kill the job otherwise we cannot access the files on the target system.  Is there a reason why the job wouldn't end on the source system if it is actually successful considering we checked the data on the target system upon killing the job?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry, as an update we've been doing savrstobj and not savrstlib.

I can' think of any reason that SAVRSTOBJ should be holding locks on objects after the save portion of the task completes.  If I recall correctly, SAVRSTOBJ just:

  • Creates a temporary save file
  • Executes the SAVOBJ command to save the specified objects to the save file (any source object locks should be released once this step completes)
  • Transmits the save file to the target system
  • Restores the objects from the save file on the target system

Can you provide the following:

1) Specific SAVRSTOBJ command that you are executing, with all parameters

2) Job log from save job on source system

3) Job locks (from DSPJOB) from the save job on the source system.

4) Job log from restore job on target system

5) Job locks from the restore job on the target system

6) WRKOBJLCK command on one of the locked objects on the target system before the source job is terminated.

Gary, it looks like the reason why it wasn't ending correctly was because of an actual WAN connection issue.  We've had some very successful tests so far, so we are content with the results.  Thank you for your suggestions on this.

Our issue ended up being outside the scope of the actual commands and the 400 itself and was instead the physical connection between the two locations.
