This topic describes how to move Robot Save 11 or 12 setup information only to another system on which it is not currently installed.

Before You Begin

IBM Media and Storage Extensions (MSE)

MSE must be installed on your system before you install Robot Save. If MSE is not installed, Robot Save cannot register the exit points and your saves will not complete.

Do the following to verify that MSE is installed on your system:

  1. Enter GO LICPGM on a command line.

  2. On the Work with Licensed Program panel, select option 10, Display installed licensed programs.

  3. When the Display Installed Licensed Programs panel displays, check for Media and Storage Extensions.

    Note: If MSE is not installed on your system, contact IBM for information on purchasing and installing it.

Steps to Move Robot Save Setup

On the source system

Note: If the system you're moving is a data center participant (DCP) in a Robot Save data center, exclude the system from the data center before proceeding. If the system you're moving is the data center management system (DCMS), you must transfer it to another system. For more information on working with data centers, see the Robot Save User Guide.

  1. End the Robot Save monitor jobs

  2. Save the following Robot Save and Robot Corral libraries to tape or save file: RBSDTALIB, RBSPGMLIB, RBSKEYLIB, RBTROLLIB.

  3. If no other Robot products are installed on your target system, you also must save the Robot system library, RBTSYSLIB.

On the target system

If no other Robot products are installed on the target system, do steps 1, 2, and 3; otherwise skip to step 4.

  1. Make sure that the user profiles RBTADMIN and RBTUSER are valid user profiles on the target system or partition. If they aren’t, use the following commands to create the user profiles:

    RSTOBJ OBJ(RSL062) SAVLIB(RBTSYSLIB) DEV(*SAVF) SAVF(savflib/RBTSYSLIB) RSTLIB(QGPL)

    CALL PGM(QGPL/RSL062)

    DLTOBJ OBJ(QGPL/RSL062) TYPE(*PGM)

  2. Enter the following command to restore RBTSYSLIB from your tape:

    RSTLIB LIB(RBTSYSLIB) DEV(device_name) MBROPT(*ALL) ALWOBJDIF(*ALL)

  3. Enter the following command to set up the Robot Save environment:

    WRKSYSVAL QSYSLIBL

    Then, do the following:

    1. Enter option 2, Change, next to QSYSLIBL to update the system library list.

    2. Add RBTSYSLIB at the same sequence number position as it was on the source system.

    3. Sign off the system, then sign on for this change to take effect for your session.

  4. Add RBTSYSLIB to the system library list (it doesn’t have to be first):

    CHGSYSLIBL RBTSYSLIB

  5. Enter the following command to create the user profiles RBTADMIN and RBTUSER:

    CALL RSL062

  6. Enter the following restore commands. It is extremely important to restore the libraries in the order shown.

    RSTLIB RBSDTALIB

    RSTLIB RBSPGMLIB

    RSTLIB RBSKEYLIB (used only in version 11 for encryption)

    RSTLIB RBTROLLIB

  7. If the target system name is different from the source system, you must run the following command to change the system name in Robot Save files.

    RSLCHGSYSN

    where Product = ROBOTSAV.

  8. Enter a valid security code. (Enter RBO on a command line, press function key F10, and enter option 1 next to Robot Save.)

  9. Enter the following command to remove old system names:

    CLRPFM RBSPGMLIB/RBSAC

  10. Enter the following command to remove old history:

    CLRPFM RBSPGMLIB/RBSOH

  11. Manually remove all tapes from Robot Save.

After you've completed these steps, be sure to review your setup in Robot Save. Some things you should check are:

  • Devices (the target system may use a different resource or a different device)
  • Media descriptions
  • Locations
  • Move sets
  • Libraries defined to back up classes and sets
