Back up all user data instructions

We have a customer that wishes to back up all user data on the system. What commands need to be included?

This procedure is taken directly from the Backup and Recovery Manual SC41-5304-05:

To save all user data on the system execute the following commands:

ENDSBS SBS(*ALL)OPTION(*IMMED)
SAVSECDTA
SAVCFG
SAVLIB LIB(*ALLUSR)ACCPTH(*YES)
SAVDLO DLO(*ALL)FLR(*ANY)
SAV DEV('/QSYS.LIB/media-device-name .DEVD ')+
OBJ(('/*')('/QSYS.LIB '*OMIT)+
('/QDLS '*OMIT)+
('/QIBM/ProdData '*OMIT)+
('/QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData '*OMIT))+
UPDHST(*YES)STRSBS SBSD(controlling-subsystem)

The easier way to do it... Sign on as QSYSOPR, call the SAVE menu: GO SAVE

Then take option 23.

That's all there is to it!
