Save and Restore Enhancements for IBM i 7.5



IBM i 7.5 adds a new default value for the ASYNCBRING parameter, allows restoring of all user profiles without needing to end all other subsystems, and includes the size of objects restored on the progress message for an IFS restore.

New default value for ASYNCBRING parameter

The new default value for the ASYNCBRING parameter on the Save Object (SAV) command and the QsrSave API provides the same or better performance for saving IFS data. Objects are brought into memory asynchronously during IFS save processing, potentially improving the performance of the save operation. The GO SAVE menu options automatically inherit this new default. For more information, see the SAV and QsrSave topics in IBM Documentation.


RSTUSRPRF USRPRF(*ALL) no longer requires a dedicated system. Specifying *ALL for the User profile (USRPRF) parameter on the Restore User Profiles (RSTUSRPRF) command no longer requires that all other subsystems on the system be ended. For more information, see the RSTUSRPRF topic in IBM Documentation.

Progress message for IFS restore

The progress message displayed during an IFS restore now includes the size of objects that completed the restore operation.  Therefore, if the size of the data that needs to be restored is known, the system administrator can better estimate the time remaining for the restore.
