TAA Tools

The  Check  Save command  allows  you  to  determine if  a  library  or
libraries  have  had any  changed  objects or  members  since the  last
save.   This allows you  to quickly determine if  your save strategy is
being implemented  correctly  (If you  use SAVLIB  *NONSYS  on a  daily
basis, you do not need CHKSAV).

Three spooled files are output

  **   CHKSAVLIB.   This  provides  one  line per  library  so you  can
       quickly  determine if the library is backed  up.  If the library
       is 'Not current', you should then  look at the detail in one  of
       the next two spooled files.

  **   CHKSAVOBJ.   This  provides one  line  per object  that is  'Not
       current'.   If the object is  a data base file,  you may need to
       look at the next spooled file.

  **   CHKSAVMBR.   This provides  one  line per  member that  is  'Not

The output  also  describes the  last time  several  major system  save
operations were executed such as SAVSYS, SAVCFG, SAVSECDTA, etc.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   LIB           1  - 20 library  names or  the special  value *NONSYS.
                 These  are  the libraries  that will  be checked.   If
                 *NONSYS is  entered,  all libraries  except QSYS  will
                 be  checked.   If *NONSYS  is specified,  you  must be
                 authorized to the TAADSPADP authorization list.

   IGNQCHGS      Ignore   queue  A   *YES/*NO  value   that  determines
                 whether JOBQ/OUTQ objects will  be considered.   *JOBQ
                 and *OUTQ  objects are  changed by  the system.   This
                 can  give a false  impression of the  backup status of
                 a system.   Only  the  object descriptions  are  saved
                 for *JOBQ/*OUTQ objects.

The  default  is  *YES,  meaning  *JOBQ  and   *OUTQ  objects  are  not
considered if they are changed.

   PRTFILE       The  qualified name of  the printer  file to  be used.
                 QPRINT  in  *LIBL is  the default.   The  spooled file
                 names   are    always   CHKSAVLIB,   CHKSAVOBJ,    and
