Question:

Is there any need for the CA View SARACT file?

Environment:
CA View - All releases
Answer:

With CA View's use of the SAPI interface, the PSO information contained in a SARACT file is covered and exceeded by what information is available in a View database.

If the current SARACT (Accounting information) file accommodates only to a maximum Job number of 65600, the SARSTC task can abend with a S001-01 condition if a job number coming from another system exceeds 65600.

 

To prevent an abend, there are the following options: 

. If there is no current actual use for the SARACT file, comment out (or remove) the "//SARACT DD" statement (to be "//*SARACT DD") used in any SARXTD and SARSTC tasks. 

. Allocate a new, bigger SARACT file (to 1,000,120 slots), using the following: 

//XXXXXXXX JOB ... 

//SARINACT EXEC PGM=SARINACT 

//STEPLIB DD DSN=CAI.CVDELOAD,DISP=SHR 

//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* 

//SARACT DD DSN=VIEW.SARACT,DISP=(,CATLG), 

// UNIT=SYSDA,VOL=SER=nnnnnn, 

// SPACE=(6160,4546,,CONTIG)
