This Knowledge Document describes how to increase CA 11's 601 database areas.


The following process should be used :

  1. Suspend all CA 11 activity against this Multi-User

    Note: If TRKRMS=NO is specified in the CONFIG file, you will have to issue SHUTDOWN to CA 11 instead of performing the SUSPEND

  2. Run DBUTLTY (run with DATACOM Multi-User Up)


  3. Check on Multi-User if base has been put in ACCESS OFF

    Message DB00607I - BASE 601 ACCESS OFF

  4. Run AL7BKUP (L730BKUP in r3.0) JCL to backup Entire CA 11 database files

  5. Rename existing 601 file to be increased (JHF601,DSN601 etc.)

    Run AL7AD2 (L730AD2 in r3.0) to allocate a larger 601 file with secondary allocation

  6. Run AL7LD1 (L730LD1 in r3.0) to reload CA 11 database files

  7. Resume or Restart CA 11 depending on action taken in Step 1

Note: Any increase to the JHF601 and DSN601 will have an effect on the sizing of the IXX601. As a rule of thumb, the IXX should beas large as the largest of JHF601 or DSN601.
