What is the Best Practices, in backing up ACF2 Certificates records?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

Daily backups of all three ACF2 databases is the Best Practice.  The digital certificates are included in the INFOSTG database.  A best practice would be to use a GDG on the backup file so a new file would be created every day.  Set the GDG number to be one every day in between the full pack backups that would include the daily backup.  Also include a job scheduler or automated operator to check for successful completion of the backup process and if that fails, then a notification procedure would be done to the required personnel.
