Question:

After restoring a journal archive file to do a ROLLFORWARD, ROLLBACK or Ez-Reorg, getting error:

UT014001 JOURNAL SEQUENCE ERROR

How can the archive journal be verified that the sequence is correct before using it in recovery?

Answer:

To verify the journal run the IDMSBCF EXTRACT JOURNAL utility which will do the same journal sequence checks as ROLLFORWARD/ROLLBACK.
To check the whole journal use the following command:

EXTRACT JOURNAL FOR DMCL ALL;
