Why is a DB RC 79(87) returned after a CXXCLONE?

Issue:

A CXX dataset has been correctly initialized using DBUTLTY INIT function. Then a DBUTLTY CXXCLONE is successfully executed using as input a CXX backup file from a previous release; but after that all the Datacom requests (in MUF or by DBUTLTY) fail due to DB RC 79(87) (CXX IS WRONG VERSION).

 

Cause:  

If DBID=1-5000 parameter is not used, CXXCLONE assumes that not only it has to restore all the DBIDs but it has also to switch the release to the one of the BACKUP CXX. 

 

Resolution:

When using a backup file from a previous release and all the databases must be cloned, CXXCLONE function must be executed with a DBID=1-5000 parameter:

 

 CXXCLONE DDNAME=..,STATUS=...,OPTION=..,DBID=1-5000
