During a Disaster Recovery test, an attempt to restore the EPIC catalog failed with the message EP404 INVALID ACCESS - SYSTEM NOT ACTIVE. TSIDON fails with EP018 EPIC SYSTEM TURNED OFF IN nn PARTITION and EP420 NO FORMAT 1 IJSYSDS.
The CA Epic catalog is not present at the time the restore is being attempted.
Format the catalog with TSIDCDK, which does not require that EPIC be active. Then start EPIC and restore the catalog.
See the CA EPIC Installation and System Guide for details on using the TSIDCDK utility and for detailed information on Moving and Changing the catalog.
