Executing CA Log Analyzer for DB2 for z/OS (PLA) where the ARCHLOG1 dataset is migrated or not unavailable results in an allocation error. How to divert PLA to use the ARCHLOG2 backup / alternate archive logs instead?



There is an option in highlvl.CDBAPARM member PLA to switch to ARCHLOG2 called LOGCOPY2.  When LOGCOPY2 is set to (Y) it will cause PLA to allocate COPY2 of DB2's active / archive logs before COPY1.
