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.

Re: BRMS Saving Spool Files2013-01-21T19:36:36Z in response to SystemAdminTom,
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
Re: BRMS Saving Spool Files2013-01-22T01:04:12Z in response to QSECOFRHi, 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.
