- The information is printed to the spool files.
- The output is directed the database file that you specify in the Output file name box.
- Output file name
- This is mandatory when you set the Log output destination to *OUTFILE. Use this box to specify the database file where the output of the backup is directed. If the file does not exist, the backup process creates a database file in this directory with the public authority that is the same as the specified library authority. If the file is created, the public authority of the file is the same as the create authority for the library where the file is created. The format of the file is:
- Example: "QGPL/CVLBACKUP"

Log output destination to
- If the database member exists, the backup process adds records to the end of the existing member.

- The backup process creates a database member with a unique name that is the combination of the Output Member name and the SnapProtect job number.
- For example, if the Output Member name is "MONST" and the backup job number is "6679", the database member name name is "MONST6679".
