Pinned topic BRMS Saving Spool Files

‏2013-01-21T18:20:22Z |
Hello, We will be installing a new POWER 740 server to replace a POWER6 server. The old server is running V6R1 and BRMS. We plan on doing a full system save with BRMS. Question: What is the best way to save spool files and out put queues on the old server using BRMS? Please provide specific instructions.

The new server will be running V6R1 and BRMS. We will be doing a full system restore using BRMS on the new server. Question: What is the best way to use BRMS and restore the spool files and output queues?

Thanks very much for the response.

    Tom,

    At V6R1, BRMS will perform the native save of the spool files under the covers, so its not extremely slow on the restore anymore.

    Best way would be to copy your Full system save control group such as *SYSTEM and then select option 8 to change the attributes to the following:
    Save contents of save files . . . . . . *ALL
    Save spooled file data . . . . . . . . . *ALL

    Note: If you want your spool files to show in WRKSPLFBRM, then you need to change your libraries to have 'Retain Object Detail' set to either *YES or *OBJ

    Hi, just one correction. There is no need to make a copy of the *SYSTEM control group to save the spool files. You can change any of the attributes (option 8) of the *SYSTEM control group so changing the parameter to save all spool files is all that is required.

    When you restore to the new system, you will need to change the defaults in the STRRCYBRM screen (F9) to restore spool files *NEW.

    Thanks
