i believe the LOGS still use date as a ""key"" and as such one of 2 things
must happen

1) shutdown for an hour to assure that log records are not written with
dates earlier than what aleady exists
2) shutdoen long enough to rename in a new (pre-formatted) set of log =
files

Re: Daylight Savings Time
"Our mainframes don't have to be shut done. Just the TOD reset.
The problem is IDMS.
The potential for dupicate journal entry time stamps is to great for that one
hour.
But by the very nature of any DB with automatic recovery, that potential
exists.
We simply shutdown IDMS, initalize the Journals, after off loading them, and
start IDMS right back up. Takes 10 minutes.

How are those of you in the U.S. handling the switch from DST to Standard Time
this weekend? The provider we rent mainframe time from insists that the only
way to handle the change is to shut down the machine and wait an hour, and
that this is true of zOS, IDMS, DB2, and everything that produces recovery
logs. They even state that we are at recovery risk by letting our Unix boxes
run for that hour.

My PC and even my VCR can handle the change, is it true that some of the most
advanced computer systems in the world can't deal with this simple task?

Re: Versioning for DC-COBOL

You can do it, but you'll have to create a version loadlib(v0002, etc)
from which to load the cobol programs. All the years I was in idms tech
support, I had not heard any users actually doing it.

Map abort
"Oh mighty IDMS gurus:

I am having an issue with map - specifically map help.

Anytime I invoke the defined help key whether for a field help or map
help, my whole user session is aborted with the following message:

17:21 IDMS DC027007 V22 T3819 TASK:*FACTOTUM* PROG:OLMPRHLP ABENDED
WITH CODE RLHP

I cannot find anything other then the message explanation - which is
generic. I can't find code RHLP anywhere in the manuals. I have
deleted the map, recreated the map, removed help from the map (and
successfully get the automatic ADSA help), re-added help and as long as
the map-level help module is defined(which is necessary for field help,)
it aborts. Our DBA has tried varying queue $MPCMxxxxxxxx DELETE after
deleting the map, but after recompiling it, this abort still occurs.
This is a TEST environment and luckily the production version works
fine.

Our DBA has opened an issue with CA support, but I thought one of you
may have encountered this before.

Any ideas?

Re: Another jreport 008 question
"Hi Javier,

If only the prefix portion of a record is modified during a command (for
example if the record is connected into a set), only the record's prefix
will be in the journal image. If the data content of a record was
modified (for example on a store, modify, erase), then the prefix and
data portion of the record will be in the journal image.

Personnally, I use a little known product called Journal Reporter from
ISP that gives great auditing reports of records modified on the
database. If you want an example of the report, let me know, and I'll
send you one offline.

Re: Another jreport 008 question
"Javier,
What I think what you have encountered is the first part of a spanned
journal image. If there is not enough room remaining in the journal
buffer to fit the entire journal image, we can split the journal image.
The rest of the image will appear later in another journal record.
Jreport 8 processes the journal file sequentially and makes to attempt
to put these spanned journal images back together for it's displays, but
it does recognize that it is displaying only part of the full image and
issues the message you are seeing.
