Looks like the backup problem at work is fixed now and my theory was correct.  Remember boys and girls, when updating your i5/OS at work or at home, completely run STROBJCVN to update all those pesky object formats before running a full save – otherwise a lot of objects will be modified after your save and that makes saving changed objects a little hairier than normal – at least until after another full save is completed.

Although I was under the impression that objects would be converted during the save process – thus slowing down the save a bit but still accomplishment the task.  It appears that I was wrong.  Now that this problem is solved, on to more fun tasks like:
- Upgrading a Brocade fibre switch’s firmware.
- Applying a service pack to JD Edwards OneWorld XE (not looking forward to this).
- Migrate the System i 550 to a new System i 525 server.
- Play with new server equipment, UPS, tape library and hopefully not drop anything.  I better wear my helmet.
