Introduction:

After upgrading to CA Dispatch release 11.6 or 11.7 clients are unable to use IEBGENER or other utilities outside of CA Dispatch, to extract archive reports to a sequential file or to a print file and view them in a readable format.

The report file generated by the IEBGENER is not in a readable format.

The problem occurs for clients who have NOT turned on the ICSF encryption functionality in CA Dispatch.

Question:

Is there a way to offload reports from CA Dispatch archive tapes and see them in a readable format outside of CA Dispatch?

Answer:

Due to the special formatting of the archival data created by the current releases of CA Dispatch, non-CA Dispatch provided utilities can no longer be used to offload archived reports and view them in a readable format.

 

in order to see the archived data in a readable format, the report data must be processed through the CA Dispatch EXTRACT subtask.
