Re: BCF Log Offload

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Mar 6, 2007
Hello All:

Have you tried UNIT=(CART,,DEFER) ? Since there is nothing to offload it
may not mount the tape?

i have not experienced this problem recently ...
this is what our tape DD looks like:

//SYS002 DD DSN=&PRODDBN..&IDMS..SYS&CV..LOG.BACKUP(&GEN),
// UNIT=TAPE,
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
// LRECL=280,
// RECFM=VB

you might also look into why a log offload would be generated when
there is nothing to offload
1) a bottleneck of offload jobs that, when resolved, left the last
offload job with nothing to do?
2) a log offload submitted during downtime only to find that the last
internally submiited offload didnt run until after the CV had come
down, thus leaving the ""scheduled"" log offload nothing to do ...
3) someone formatted the log file?

we use ICEMAN to copy the individual logs to the .DAILY

Re: [IDMSVENDOR-L] BCF Log Offload
"yes - there is another valid rc4 (at least i think it is a 4) - many DBAs
(based on conversations on this list) have placed an unlock of the log
area in the offload job so that even if the log area does get locked the
offload can continue - but if the log area is NOT locked, the unlock
request returns a 4 (i think)

"Dan,

That is exactly what I would like to do. But that raises the question
""is there any valid CC 4 conditions?"". In that situation, I may not
want to delete the file.
