Re:Error on Areas in DB

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on May 11, 2010
Hello, I am an application developer not a DBA. The DBA is on vacation for
the next 2 weeks and I need some help.

She gave me some jcl to restore our test db. So I ran it, however it did not
have a step to vary the areas offline first and I did not vary them offline.
I ran a job to unlock the areas but it says the areas are not locked. So I
went to the enter next task code prompt and tried to vary the segment
(contains the areas) offline. I get this error for each area: 3018 Error
Closing AREA IDZSGDAT.IAFAR007-REGION. I am not sure what to do next and
any help would be greatly appreciated since the DBA won't be back until May

Re: Error on Areas in DB
"Thank you for the responses. I remembered something about varying the files
active after seeing these emails.

Varying the files active solved the problem, though restarting the CV
probably would have worked also.

Thanks so much for you help, I knew I could count on the group of people
subscribed to this list to be helpful as usual.
