The Release 12.6 PTF RO73594 adds a new Delta Objects feature.
With Release 14.0 it is delivered in the Base.
Until it is customized, informational messages are displayed that can be confusing.
The Delta Objects provide the capability to compare the data present in the logs or capture files of any Source Object with the current value to see how it varies over time.
If the customization for this feature is not done, these error messages are displayed:
VAN0901I GENSVC99 An SVC 99 error has occurred in dynamic -- allocation.
VAN0901I GENSVC99 ---- DDNAME=DELTADEF
VAN0901I GENSVC99 ---- DSNAME=CAI.VANTAGE.DELTADEF
VAN0901I GENSVC99 ---- DISP=SHR
VAN0901I GENSVC99 IKJ56228I DATA SET CAI.VANTAGE.DELTADEF NOT IN CATALOG O
VAN0901I GENSVC99 R CATALOG CAN NOT BE ACCESSED
VAN1600E The Delta Object definitions library cannot be found.
The HOLDDATA listed, with PTF RO73594 or at Release 14.0 base installation, is very lengthy and provides all the details of how to use this new feature.
The following steps explain how to enable the Delta Objects function and how to make factory-supplied Delta Objects available to users.
1. Allocate the DELTADEF library as an FB 80 PDS or PDSE.
The default name is (%%DSNPFX%%.DELTADEF).
Use the ALLOCDEL step of the J01DELTA job in the CCTUSAMP library.
2. Run the COPYDELT step of the J01DELTA configuration job in the CCTUSAMP library to copy the factory-defined Delta Objects
to the DELTADEF data set. All factory-defined Delta Objects have an internal name starting with D99.
3. Specify Vkgparm DELTADEF with the name of your Delta Objects definition data set created in the prior step.
The default DSN is: (%%DSNPFX%%.DELTADEF).
If your DSN does not follow this pattern, specify the complete DSN with this Vkgparm that you allocated.
