Question:
What need to be considered when moving the CA 7 Checkpoint Dataset to a different Volume or Device?
Answer:
When moving the Checkpoint  Dataset to a different volume, or Device, CA 7 need to be down. You should then start CA 7 with a TYPE: CKPT. The CKPT will then be reinitialized and the following will occur: 

--The CA7 job number starts over at the lowest available number. 
-- The schedule scan processing options are reestablished. Scanning can be initiated at the 
    option of the user. 
-- The product starts logging to the primary log. Any data that was in either the primary or 
    secondary log file is overwritten without being written to the history file. If you want to save 
    the log data, execute the log dump jobs before doing the CKPT start. 

   To avoid resetting the schedule counter, you should perform the the move directly after schedule scan last activated to avoid resetting the counter.
