Question:

If the SYNCFILE needs to be moved to a different volume in a SYSPLEX. What are the steps to do this?

 

Answer:

These are the recommend steps:

  1. Stop CACHE on all systems:
    F ACF2,CACHE(STOP) on each connected system

  2. Change SYNCOPTS to NOACTIVATE:
    ACF
    SET C(GSO)
    CHA SYNCOPTS(NOACTIVATE)
    F ACF2,REFRESH(SYNCOPTS)

  3. Move file (assuming same filename)

  4. Change SYNCOPTS to ACTIVATE:
    ACF
    SET C(GSO)
    CHA SYNCOPTS(ACTIVATE)
    ACF2,REFRESH(SYNCOPTS)

  5. Restart CACHE on all systems:
    F ACF2,CACHE(START) on each connected system
