Good strategies for iSeries backup

IBM's iSeries Backup and Recovery manual answers many questions related to system backup and disaster recovery.

Kwinters asks:

What is the command to perform a standalone backup on iSeries?

Molly asks:

We have an LTO4 tape drive with Library Managed Encryption. Our EKM server runs on our iSeries (one partition). What is a good strategy for our backups in order to be prepared for disaster recovery?

These two questions are WAY too general for a specific answer. This is why IBM has written a 572-page manual titled, iSeries Backup and Recovery :)
