While comparing receiver cards, I broke out the 5364 System/36. I have not backed it up since I got it working.

How do you perform a full system save where you can IPL and restore the system from Diskette.

On our AS/400 it's Go Save or SavSys and then choose what options you want.

Thanks,

Jimmy

I don't know. But the manuals are on Bitsavers: www.bitsavers.org/pdf/ibm/system36/

Thank you, I thought I could not find the command in the manual, but it appears there is no similar command in SSP. I had copied the microcode to a floppy with the INITDIAG command, then backup up the #Library, then my loaded modules with the xxxSAVE command.
