CA IDMS Tuesday Tip by Jennifer Bailey, Senior Support Engineer, for September 25, 2012

To verify ahead of time that a BIND RUNUNIT will succeed for a particular combination of subschema and database name, use the IDMSLOOK utility (or LOOK system task), with the BIND SUBSCHEMA option, as follows:

BIND SUBSCHEMA=subschema,DBNAME=dbname

That way, you can detect potential problems ahead of time because the BIND SUBSCHEMA option will notify you of any errors encountered in binding to the specified subschema and DBNAME.
