The BrightStor CA PDSMAN LLA/E Batch Interface and Reporting utility, PDSM35, LLACHECK control statement provides the option to automatically re-synchronize LLA directory entries with physical library directories in a batch environment. This option, introduced in CA PDSMAN provides a powerful tool that you can use as part of a change management cutover process.
The syntax for the LLACHECK RESYNCH option is:
Y - Indicates the physical library and LLA should be automatically re-synchronized. This is accomplished by issuing LLACOPY for each member that is not in synchronization.
N (default) - Differences between the physical directory and LLA are reported, but no automatic re-synchronization is performed. PDSM35 operates the same as before RESYNCH was added.
You can use this facility as part of a scheduled change cutover process to automatically re-synchronize LLA with updated physical directories. For example, by simply adding a PDSM35 step with LLACHECK RESYNCH=Y, following an IEBCOPY step that updates LLA managed libraries, you ensure that LLA is synchronized with updated physical directories.
In addition, if the CA PDSMAN Cross-System Communication facility is enabled, LLA is automatically re-synchronized on all remote systems.
