Passwords in IDMS

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Jan 12, 2007
We would like to know what characters may be used in an IDMS password
when you running with INTERNAL security as well as any other
restrictions. The manuals don't satisfy. It looks like any and all
characters you can type up to 8 characters are acceptable, including
mischief like embedded quotes. Thanks.

Re: Record and set changes
"To change the order of a set, I believe the following will work.

1. Create a temporary schema that contains the new set definition.
2. Perform an UNLOAD/RELOAD
using a subschema generated from your production schema on the
unload step
using a subschema generated from the temporary schema on the
reload step.
3. Modify production schema with new definition.

To clear up a few questions: It is a standard set ordered last, not
an index of any sort. I want to change it to sorted by some new
fields that are to be populated.

The restructure will add the new fields.

The program will populate the new fields.

The Express Reorg idea is good, but unfortunately we don't have it.



It sounds like the best and easiest approach is to :

1. Run the restructure.
2. Extract the member records and the key of the owning set and
populate the new fields
3. Delete the record (the only set it is a member of is the one being
reordered).
4. Change the schema to sorted.
5. Readd the record. While this may be a bit expensive in terms of
I/O, I am only talking about 104,000 records, which is not too large an
amount.
6. Unload/load to reorg the area.




Thank you all for all your help and great ideas. I knew this forum
would be a great help.

Regards,
Petra

Re: Print Index - report output
"Mike,

I agree with the answers for Bill Allen and Paul Mak apart from their
description of SPA. This I believe is the space available on the PAGE in
which the SR8 being reported on resides.
