Question:

What are CA-ACF2 SAFPROT, SAFSAFE, and/or SAFMAPS records in the ACF2 Infostorage database?

 

Description:

When listing all SAF records, there may be some obsolete records, named SAFPROT, SAFSAF, and/or SAFMAPS.

The GSO SAFPROT , SAFSAFE, and SAFMAPS records were part of CA-ACF2 5.n service levels. The SAFPROT and SAFSAFE records were replaced with GSO SAFDEF records and the SAFMAPS record was replaced with CLASMAP records at CA-ACF2 release 6.0. These records are ignored as there is no support in CA-ACF2 for these records (since release 6.0). These records can safely and easily be deleted.

Resolution:

SAFPROT, SAFSAFE, and/or SAFMAPS records can be deleted via the following commands:

  1. You can delete a specific SAFPROT (SAFSAFE or the SAFMAPS) record via the following commands:

    ACF
    SET CONTROL(GSO)
    DELETE SAFPROT.xxx
    DELETE SAFSAFE.yyy
    DELETE SAFMAPS

    Note: xxx and yyy are the specific qualifiers associated with the records. There can only be one SAFMAPS record.

  2. You can also delete all SAFPROT or SAFSAFE records via the following commands:

    ACF
    SET CONTROL(GSO)
    DELETE LIKE(SAFPRO-)
    DELETE LIKE(SAFSAF-)

    Caution: do NOT mask to SAF- as this could remove valid SAFDEF records.
