Daylight Savings Time

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Nov 2, 2007
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
"Kay

One thing I forgot

We do a

DCMT v dyn pro program-name version Version-number

We usually have a CLIST setup that we run at start-up to do the DCMT's
because a release could have many many DC-Cobol programs in it.

We also use LOADLISTS because we have a number of applications that
interface with each other.

DEL LOADLIST LOADLIST-NAME
ADD LOADLIST LOADLIST-NAME
DICTNAME IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT DICTNODE IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT
VERSION IS USER-DEFAULT
DICTNAME IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT DICTNODE IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT
VERSION IS 240
DICTNAME IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT DICTNODE IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT
VERSION IS 119
DICTNAME IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT DICTNODE IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT
VERSION IS 4
DICTNAME IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT DICTNODE IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT
VERSION IS 1
LOADLIB IS USER-DEFAULT
LOADLIB IS V0240
LOADLIB IS V0119
LOADLIB IS V0004
LOADLIB IS SYSTEM-DEFAULT

At Times we can have multiple versions going because of different
applications doing releases at the same time.
