Is there a way to tell the command to exclude the IFS in order to make the process faster?
Instead of executing Option 21, you could create a simple CLP that does a slightly different backup.
Here is what Option 21 normally does:
You could create a CLP with these basic commands and run it instead of running Option 21:
ENDSBS SBS(*ALL) OPTION(*IMMED) SAVSYS SAVLIB LIB(*NONSYS) ACCPTH(*YES) SAVDLO DLO(*ALL) FLR(*ANY) SAV OBJ(('/*') ('/QSYS.LIB' *OMIT) ('/QDLS' *OMIT)) UPDHST(*YES) STRSBS SBSD(controlling-subsystem)
I'm assuming that all the RJS file are located in the RJS directory. If they are not all located in the RJS directory, then you must specify the name of the directory or directories you want to omit.
ENDSBS SBS(*ALL) OPTION(*IMMED) SAVSYS SAVLIB LIB(*NONSYS) ACCPTH(*YES) SAVDLO DLO(*ALL) FLR(*ANY) SAV OBJ(('/*') ('/QSYS.LIB' *OMIT) ('/QDLS' *OMIT) ('/RJS' *OMIT)) UPDHST(*YES) STRSBS SBSD(controlling-subsystem)
That's all there is to it.
