(110) Check AS400 configuration

Normally, QMirror BK should run well under common AS400 configuration. If you have a slow backup speed, you will need to check or tune your AS400 configuration.

Please refer to the following paragraphs to check with your AS400 configuration. Watch the QMirror BK performance status and tune accordingly.

1. Use command STRTCPSVR to start FTP server and DDM server.

2. Manage access using FTP exit programs.

You can provide additional security by adding FTP exit programs to further restrict FTP access to your AS400. Please refer to

3. Use command DSPUSRPRF QUSER to verify that the user’s status is *ENABLED.

4. Use command STRHOSTSVR *ALL to start the optimized host server daemons.

5. Amend QZDASOINIT/QUSER PJ jobs back to normal priority.

a) QZDASOINIT runs priority based on QSYS/QPWFSERVER *CLS
b) Default value = 20
d) Restart QSERVER subsystem

6. Use command
