Question:

After executing the CA Database Management Solutions for DB2 for z/OS Post Install ssid0000 Compare DB2 Objects job with the RECOVERY option specified as Y, see DROP, CREATE, and ALTER statements to upgrade the DB2 objects in hlq.CDBASAMP ssidDDL and ssidDDLU members.  The RECOVER.DSN and RECOVER.DSNU datasets are not populated and there are no unload files of original table data named as userid.dbname.TIDnnn.ssid.RDATA.

Want to confirm all the recovery statements and files should be ready prior to the execution on CA DB2 objects upgrade.

Answer:

The RECOVERY .CALL SNAPSHOT process within the ssid0001 CA DB2 tools Post Install Create DB2 Objects job will dynamically create the required RDATA unload files and populate the RECOVER.DSN datasets as required.
