Unattended full system save and IPL

If you need to run an unattended full system save and IPL, you?ll want to check out this CL program.

I recently read Ken Graap's response to a question posed in the Search400 Expert Q&A section, Run SAVSYS backup in a restrictive state. I was interested to see that he has an operator on site to run the job. Here at our shop I have developed a command that sits on the console waiting to be activated by a message. Here's the full listings required. It contains a command, a CL program, a message queue and a job Schedule entry. Set up the CL program and command and simply enter the command on the console. There is a method of canceling the save remotely if need be.
