Re: [IDMSVENDOR-L] 2 PDE copies in memory

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Aug 31, 2007
But, cobol and assembler programs are not loaded using a null pde,
correct? they are either sysgenned or dcmt v dynamiced. Also,
technically, I dont understand why varying memory on a pde corrupts pde
searches when the pde's are indexed. If the pde search were binary,
then I understand that other pde's could be compromised in the search.
But an index search will find the index entry, go to the pde and then
loader decides the name in the pde doesn't match the search criteria and
return a not found condition. Exactly what the purpose was. No
question in my mind that this should not be a lightly taken approach,
but if a production system must be supported and the cv cycling produces
an expensive outage that the company is paying for, and CA can't fix the
corrupted pde problem because it's not recreatable, then what else can a
technician do?

"I would suggest never doing this.. BUT.. if you have to and do not want
to corrupt your index - change the name to something that fits
alphabetically into the index.
IE.
DCMT D PRO shows these 3 programs in order:
EFMPRG1

EFMPRG2
EFMPRG3
If you want to nullify EFMPRG2, change its name so it fits in order,
Vary it to say EFMPRG1B
Then display (DCMT D PRO will show its order as:
EFMPRG1

EFMPRG1B
EFMPRG3
And the index integrity will be preserved.
