My system is running out of disk space. I would like to know if there is a way to save multiple libraries to a...
Unfortunately, OS/400 only allows one library to be saved to a Save File. If you try to save more than one, you will receive the following message: CPF3789 "Only one library allowed with specified parameters."
However, you can create multiple save files, one for each library you save, into another library and then save all of them to a single Save File with a SAVLIB command:
SAVLIB LIB(MYSAVFLIB) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(SAVLIB/MYSAVFS) SAVFDTA(*YES)
To restore though, you will have to restore the Save File first and then execute another restore command to restore objects saved to that Save File.
If you are running out of disk space though, you may just want to save these libraries directly to tape. Saving to Save Files uses a lot of disk space.
