When people talk to us about backup and recovery, one of the most common questions is “how often should I be doing a full system save?”
Given we’re about to install PTFs or upgrade the OS, my response is always, “when was your last full system save?” What I do next
Check your last SAVSYS by reviewing the QSAVSYS data area with the following command, then review the Save Date/Time value of the object.(more…)
When using Service Tools, the Select Time Frame screen of the Service Action Log (SAL) option of the Hardware Service Manager (HSM) service tool incorrectly does not allow “From” or “To” dates with the year 2019 or 2020.
The SAL cannot search from or to dates in 2019 or 2020. The IdeTime Class has a quirk in that the constructor that the SAL search uses assumes dates beginning with 19 or 20 are being specified with the century value 19 or 20. That leads to other bad assumptions about the dates in the case of the SAL Select Time Frame screen, where the first 2 digits are always the year including if they are 2019 or 2020. All that leads to considering the dates as invalid and error messages on the screen, as above.
To fix this problem, apply one of the PTFs below for your release. These PTFs can be applied Immediate or Delayed.
