A Backupsaveset transmitted with FTP is unreadable


The /REPAIR qualifier to the BACKUP command will fix the characteristics of a backup save set. In the example, a backup saveset was copied to another node using FTP in binary mode. This corrupted the file characteristics of the saveset. The /REPAIR qualifier was used to repair this.
