The conversion of the CA Top Secret for z/VSE database from CKD to FBA disks should be performed using the CA Top Secret utilities TSSXTEND and TSSMAINT

TSSXTEND is described in Appendix B of the CA Top Secret for z/VSE r3 Getting Started Guide. 

The procedure to use is: 

1. Backup the production CA Top Secret Security File on the CKD device to the CA Top Secret Backup Security File on a CKD device using the TSS MODIFY BACKUP command.

2. Run TSSMAINS sample JCL to format the CA Top Secret Security File on a FBA device.

3. Run TSSMAINB sample JCL to format the CA Top Secret Backup Security File on a FBA device.

4. Run TSSXTEND to copy the CA Top Secret Backup Security File on the CKD device to a newly defined CA Top Secret Security File on a FBA device.

5. Update the STDLABELS system procedure to switch the labels to the new CA Top Secret Security File and CA Top Secret Backup Security File on the FBA device.

6. Do a temporary shutdown of the CA Top Secret partition and bring it back up to pickup the new CA Top Secret Security File and CA Top Secret Backup Security File on the FBA device.

7. Backup the new CA Top Secret Security File on a FBA device to the new CA Top Secret Backup Security File on a FBA device by issuing a TSS MODIFY BACKUP command

8. Please keep a backup copy of the CA Top Secret Backup Security File on the CKD device just in case you need to return to it for whatever reason.
