Allow RTVSYSINF and UPDSYSINF to/from library in IASP
We would like to have the possibility to run RTVSYSINF and store this information in a library which is in an independent ASP. Currently this fails with MCH5601.
We have many customers using independent ASPs doing backups on their HA site. Because of this it often takes a long time until a complete backup of the production system is done. We would like to include the system information in our daily backups utilizing a RTVSYSINF into a library residing on IASP, then using techniques like flashcopy or metromirror to get a 1:1 copy on our second location and performing a backup there. Thus we would be able to run UPDSYSINF from that backup in case of any disaster recovery operation.
