Let's get back to the basics. These sessions are designed for anyone starting out as an IBM i sys admin, looking to refresh their knowledge, or looking to learn more.

Let's get back to the basics. In this session we'll:

1.) Backup strategy: your system is only as good as your backups and ability to restore them.

      The method that you use to back up your system depends on your backup strategy. If you do not have a strategy, you need to plan a backup and recovery strategy

2.) Methods: Simple, medium, complex.  The simpler the better and easier to restore.

      Save/Restore Commands
      Use of backup and restore management software

3.) Media and Device: Having the right media and devices for your backup strategy and method.
