Re: Broken Chain

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Jan 14, 2008
Broken pointers usually occurs when a local job updates and abends, and
the buffer for one page is written back, but not the buffer for another.
In your case the broken pointers are all on the same page, so I am going
to stick my neck out and suggest that the CALC key for that one record
has been updated using TSO, PFix or another utility outside of the
regular IDMS environment.

Since you have only one of these, it is unlikely expand page, extend
area, reorg or some other maintenance has gone wrong.

You may be able to go into DMLO or DBOL, retrieve the record via the DB
key
(1853070:17) and change the CALC key to something that it isn't and
issue the modify, then change it back, and modify, and then be back in
business.
If IDMS won't let you do that, you will need to fix the record the same
way it was broken to make sure the CALC key points to the target page
1853070:0.

Because this is the CALC set, you may also be able to run an
unload/reload to fix it.

Laura, I thought that was the case. but then why does my DBAN indicate
otherwise? It seems to me that if the owner of 185070:17 were 1853070:0
instead of 1844805:0, the chain would not be broken.
