What is the Best Practices, in backing up ACF2 Certificates records?
Release : 16.0
Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS
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.
