Automating Backups of IBM i File System Disaster Recovery Backup Sets

You can schedule or run a workflow that performs a backup of the subclients that are part of a backupset that includes a Disaster Recovery subclient.

The workflow automates the backup process by starting a backup of the disaster recovery subclient. When the backup reaches the scan phase, the workflow initiates simultaneous backups of the other subclients that are part of the backup set.

Use this procedure to make sure that you have the appropriate backups in case you need to perform a Disaster Recovery operation.
