Question:

Are there any specific changes to ASM2BKUP needed to back up the IPC (Integrated Product Catalog) to DASD?

Answer:

The IPC may be backed up to disk. The only change required is in the DD statement. Here is a sample DD statement:

 
//ASM2BKUP DD  DSN=HLQ.ASM2.R42PLUS.IPCBKUP,
//             UNIT=3390,VOL=SER=xxnnnn,    
//             SPACE=(CYL,(2,1)),           
//             DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE)
