Gotcha. We're trying to get access to the data center for this weekend
so we can swap tapes.

Thanks,
Roger Mackie

That should work. Don't wait so long that some obscure object you only
use on rare occasions has been rotated off of your backup tapes.

RE: Damaged objects after hard fall






Thanks everyone for your prompt responses. I've been busy fixing the
data in some files that didn't get updated properly when the server
crashed.

Following previous advice, I did run the DSPOBJD and find one damaged
object in QSYS. But if I understand Rob, there could be others out there
where the damaged flag got set *off. If we are smart, we will schedule a
system save and RCLSTG. (According to the DSPDTAARA QRCLSTG we have had
at least 2 different servers since it was last run). Is this the right
order?
1. full system save
2. DSPOBJD
3. RCLSTG

Thanks again for your help.
Roger Mackie

It's going to involve several hours work.

You could run the following:
RCLSTG
How long would that take on your system? DSPDTAARA QRCLSTG.
It varies.
On one machine
Value
*...+....1....+.
'1070921 201541 <-Start time
'1070922 050445 <-End time
On another
*...+....1....+.
'1070920 122733
'1070920 140332
Requires dedicated system.

Two, you should do a full system save, GO SAVE, option 21. This will
tell you what objects are damaged. And the SAVE will update a flag in
each individual object that is damaged so that you can then DSPOBJD to
an output file and query that for the damaged object flag. Attempts to
try the DSPOBJD before the save can update the flag is an exercise in
futility.

Damaged objects after hard fall






Hi all.

Yesterday a cable came loose at the data center that hosts our System i
(iSeries 81) server. The server went down hard. After it came back up, a
damaged object kept item verification from working properly. This
morning, users are reporting other bizarre behavior on our system. With
our System i administrator out for several weeks, is there anything a
programmer can do to identify damaged objects while users are doing
their normal work?

Thanks in advance,
Roger Mackie
