CA Workload Automation Restart Option for z/OS Schedulers Tuesday Tip by Alisa Puckett, Sr. Support Engineer for Jun 14, 20156
Because the CA Datacom processing uses proprietary format with its database
files, it is recommended to move files using standard CA Datacom utilities
For various reasons such as the number of files, data size, etc.), clients will
sometimes need to use other utilities to move the files.
When following the rules below non-DBUTLTY DASD utility (e.g. DFDSS, FDRDSF, etc)
can be used to move Datacom areas that are not in use:
-- The from/to DASD device type must be the same. To be specific, the track
geometry must be identical.
--The size of the new data set must be same as the original data set. It does
not need to be allocated at the same location or on the same number of
extents or volumes.
--The copy operation must be a byte-for-byte copy without any data compaction
or data compression. It must be a full track image.
--Shutdown all CA 11s and Datacom/AD MUFs.
