Question:

How can I use CA Disk, DFHSM, or FDR ABR and CA FAVER together for automatic recalls when necessary?

Answer:

The standard default setting for CA FAVER is NORECALL so archived files will not be recalled for every CA FAVER EXPORT process. However, if you want CA FAVER to perform recalls for EXPORT processing then you can add the control statement of RECALL to your CA FAVER EXPORT parameters.

To allow reloads from archive you must setup the default files in GVPARMS. This is fully documented in the CA FAVER User Guide chapter 9. 

Here is a sample setup for using CA DISK and still maintaining the default option of NORECALL so not all CA FAVER EXPORT processes will require reloads. The process is similar for FDR ABR and DFHSM

//         jobcard
//* GVPRMS JCL FOR FAVER 4.5
//GVPARMS EXEC PGM=GVPARMS
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.FAVR45.CBSVLINK
//SYSLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.FAVR45.CBSVLINK
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
SMGR=DMS
NORECALL
SMGRDDN(1)=FILES
SMGRDSN(1)='CADISK.FILES'
SMGRDDN(2)=PARMLIB
SMGRDSN(2)='CADISK.PARMLIB'

Additional Information:

See the  CA FAVER User Guide chapter 9 for more details on this utility and setting it up for FDR ABR and DFHSM.
