Store system info with backups

Following this tip, you will have a backup that includes all of your critical system parameters and values.

The first thing to do before doing a system save is have your CL program issue a command 'PRTSYSINF' and copy the spool file(*LAST) to a data file. You will then have a backup that will include all of your critical system parameters and values. This is especially critical for disaster recovery.
