Today's blog entry is related to the backup of z/VSE data. Just recently we got questions about backup tools. The most important backup tools come with the z/VSE product. Others may be provided by vendors.
Back up policies depend on your requirements and guidelines. I assume you all do regular backups of your data to recover e.g. from data corruption. It is good practice to backup the whole system before hardware or z/VSE upgrades to restore the z/VSE environment just in case anything fails.
Besides the backup tools, that are used to backup component data, you may use VSE/Fast Copy to backup the entire z/VSE system. This tool is described in z/VSE System Utilities too.
Please let me know, if you have any questions or requirements for z/VSE backups.
