Modify Entire System Save (go save 21) to show user when save start
When running an Entire System Save (Go Save 21) the user is not advised when the backup actually starts writing to the tape.
In many circumstances the console can look like the system has hung, as the first information you get about backups is when the routine starts on the libraries. (Saving the x of y libraries program message)
This delay can be anywhere between 2 mins and 2 hours depending on a number factor, like but not limited to, the end TCP timer setting, whether system in restricted state before back started, the amount of user / group permissions that exist.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
