Do Not Bypass SAVSYS When System Cannot Reach Restricted State

BRMS can be configured to fail rather than bypassing Save System (SAVSYS) command if the system is unable to reach restricted state.

To enable this function on a system-wide basis, run the following command:

CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QUSRBRM/Q1ANOSYSBP) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(1)

To enable this function for a specific job, (for example, create the data area in a control group exit prior to running the SAVSYS command), run the following command:

CRTDTAARA DTAARA(QTEMP/Q1ANOSYSBP) TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(1)

NOTES

  1. In releases IBM i 6.1 and earlier, the following PTFs or their superseding PTFs are required:
    • 6.1 SI30649
    • V5R4M0 SI30647
  2. If using restricted state saves to the Controlling Subsystem STRBKUBRM SBMJOB(CTLSBS) , and the system does not get to a restricted state, BRMS will not be able to restart the system
