The backup critical console data process shows little information to the user whilst in progress. In old releases the status of the backup was shown, e.g., generating the archive file, offloading archive file.
In current releases none of this information is shown so it is not clear which stage of the operation is in progress (the only option is to interrogate the remote server). If this could be added back in along with more information such as the archive size, transfer rate of the offload to the remote server/device and an ETA this would be useful information for system administrators who perform lots of these during patching.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
