We will be introducing a new 24/7 region. I understand that the VLSUTIL BACKUP's need to be done with the CICS region quiesced. Is there an alternative to shutting down CICS?
Does the VLUSTIL BACKUP's need to be done with the CICS regions quiesed? Is t here any other alternatives that can be used to backup a VLS file?
The BACKUP will run but for the RESTORE, you will need to close the VLS file via CEMT. Below is an example of how to close a VLS file. In the example below, we are closing the source file.
CEMT I FI(ID$IDSRC) hit enter

The VLS file is now closed.
