How spooled files are saved can impact your restore performance. A way to restore data if the restore performance is not critical to your operation is by using a spooled file list, QALLSPLF *SPL. This is the easiest way of saving all spooled files so they can be restored when migrating to new hardware or in case of a full system restore.
Saving Spooled Files using a QALLSPLF *SPL List
Follow this procedure to use the QALLSPLF *SPL list to save your spooled files:
Create the QALLSPLF *SPL list with include entry to save *ALL spooled files.
OPTIONAL: Add any additional omits to the QALLSPLF *SPL list.
Add the QALLSPLF *SPL list to a control group.
Running this control group saves all the spooled files with the backup.
