This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

An in-depth review was conducted in August 2020 and IBM provided an update on August 14th. IBM requested more information from the customer which has not been received. I believe the explanation IBM provided is sufficient enough to close this RFE.
We are adding a comment to let you know that IBM is still waiting on feedback to the previous update. The status remains in Need More Information.
IBM reviewed the data sent in association with case TS003851510. The save joblog provided does in fact indicate the job was interrupted around sequence 200 on volume PL0973 due to a user set restricted state batch time limit. This was followed by a CPF4035 indicating the processing was not complete for the volume and the job ultimately ended abnormally with ending code 50. However, the abnormal ending of the job itself should have prompted a operations response and review. In the case of incomplete save media it would be considered invalid backup media. As communicated in the case the data up until sequence 199 and possibly 200 appear to have been written successfully to a multi volume tape set beginning with volume PL0970. Were you unable to restore data from these sequences?
