Introduction:

If there becomes a need to rename an existing View database, below is a process that can be used to copy the existing database, and its tapes, to a database/tapes with a new high-level qualifier.

 

Environment:
CA View - All Releases
Instructions:

 . Run a SARPAC REPORT, to identify the full tape list:

//XXXXXXXX JOB ... 

//SARPACRP EXEC PGM=SARPAC,PARM='view_hlq,REPORT' <=== Modify DB name 

//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=VIEW.CVDELOAD <=== Modify, if used 

//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* 

//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=* 

//SYSIN DD DUMMY 

// 

 

 . Run SARDBASE RENAME to change the high-level qualifier of the View database. 

 

 . Run SARPAC on bunches of tapes, to ensure that the new naming takes place for the tapes: 

//XXXXXXXX JOB ... 

//SARPAC EXEC PGM=SARPAC,PARM='view_hlq' <=== Modify DB name 

//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=VIEW.CVDELOAD <=== Modify, if used 

//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* 

//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=* 

//SYSIN DD * 

TAPESEQ=nnnnn-nnnnn 

/* 

//

 

   Note: There is the additional benefit, to running SARPAC, of compacting the existing tapes to a lower number of tapes used.
