Re: Move a journal and receivers



fixed

According to my trusty, dusty EBCDIC Collating Sequence chart, the dollar sign ($) precedes hash (#), and is, in fact, the "first" character in that sequence that can start a name. So, on System i, the name to use if you want to guarantee collating sequence superiority, is $. Name your library $ and you can rest assured it will be restored first under your present scheme.

On the other hand, I think it unwise to try to use nuance to achieve something as important as Disaster Rwcovery. Take some ownership! Control the save order in your save strategy! You can use SAVLIB JOURNALS, and then your normal strategy, exercising EXCLUDE(JOURNALS) at the appropriate point. No magic, no tricks.

Go one step better, Name your new library #JOURNALS. Our Mimix Journal

Could even go ##JOURNALS to really go first, after all, how close is
#LIBRARY to that naming? (And there's a few of us relics that remember

that library.)
Couldn't you do a CHGJRN into the new library for your cutover, while
live, without interruption? Wait, that only works on the receivers.
Yeah,
sounds like some outage to change the journal libraries.

Subject: Move a journal and receivers
Sent by: midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx



We have most of our physical files in a library named FILES and our
journals and receivers are in a library named JOBACCT. When we did a DR

test and restored our full backup the FILES library was restored prior
to
the JOBACCT so the files were restores before the journals. We want
move
all of our journals to a library named AAJOURNALS so they restore
first.
We can't rename the library because it contains journals. We can't move

the journals because the command does not allow it. The only other
option
I can think of is to create the new library, create the new
journals/receivers in the new library. Then during scheduled downtime,
stop all journals and restart them pointing to the new library.

Is there another option?
