Voice of experience on the 400. About 1 year ago we went from a 310 to a 320. When the hardware guys made the transfer they forgot to apply the cum tape. Within a week we had files start to self-distruct. Before we had a chance to load the cums we had a consultant decide to 'fix' the file. Talk about distruction! We applied the cum and a ptf cured the problem with all of the 'damaged' objects, except the one being 'fixed'. The file, with about 15 mil records and 15 logicals took a couple of weeks to finish repairing. Just an FYI. If you have a problem....call IBM. They probably have a ptf. uucp@UUCP1.MCS.NET on 10/15/99 10:29:03 AM Please respond to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com To: cc: (bcc: Krys Theodore/WHJI) Subject: Re: PF File Definition questions... >> Was wondering how folks define PF's when it comes to keyed or not. In the past it was possible to get a damaged index on a file. The only way to fix it was to delete and recreate the index. If the damaged index was on a logical, all you had to do was recreate the logical. Physical files were another story. You couldn't copy the data because of the damage. You also couldn't reorg the file to recover. The only option was to restore from a backup. I actually had this happen to me, but it was back on the S/38. I've never heard of it happening on the AS/400 and I've been told (can't remember who) that it can't happen anymore.
