RE: Checking object create dates



fixed

James,

For files, you use Record signatures(s) do you mean Member level identifier . . . . . . . . . : 1140213104518
Or is there another field.

Depends on the object, but yes for programs I rely on the source date to determine if two programs are the same. For files, I use the record signature(s). I audit multiple systems to check for discrepancies, and this method has served me well.

Maybe
Crtdupobj carries the original source date, thus both source dates are equal.
Problem is that my utility uses dspobjd detail(*full) output(*outfile), source dates are not in the outfile.
If I change my utility to use detail(*service), I see the source dates in the outfile.

So, would it be correct to say that if two objects have different create dates, but the source dates are equal, the objects are equal.

Fix library
Creation date/time . . . . . . . . . : 08/15/11 10:41:44
Source file date/time . . . . . . . : 04/01/11 01:52:05
Std library
Creation date/time . . . . . . . . . : 08/28/11 10:49:35
Source file date/time . . . . . . . : 04/01/11 01:52:05

If you do a DSPOBJD with DETAIL(*SERVICE) it shows the Source file date/time. Will this work for you?

Subject: Checking object create dates

I'm working on a utility to find objects that exist in a custom/emergency fix library that would have a create date lt the create date of the object in the standard library, thus sign of an issue.
Utility done, working.
However, I found a scenario where we received a new object (*prtf) for an upgrade. Because we change some print attributes on a few of these, we place a copy of these prtf file objects in the fix library.
The upgrade is done, replacing the objects in the standard library.
Here's the issue.

The prtf object in the fix library was created with crtdupobj, prior to the upgrade being done.
Creation date/time . . . . . . . . . : 08/15/11 10:41:44
The prtf object in the standard library has a create date for the day of the upgrade.
Creation date/time . . . . . . . . . : 08/28/11 10:49:35

The objects are valid, but being flagged because of the create date issue.
I'm looking for some other field on the object, not finding any.

Many of our upgrade processes do this. The upgrade process does a crtdupobj, thus the object loses its original info, (create date, created by user)

Thank You
