Here are the recommended procedure for moving CA 7 stc files to a different device. The main file of focus is the CHECKPOINT (CKPT).
1 - issue CA 7 command: SSCAN (take a screen shot)
2- you will need to dump the current log and to do this issue the /SWAP command in CA 7. Once the log dump job complete you can go to the next step
3- stop CA 7
4- move all files over to new dasd
5- in the CA 7 init deck set the following to options:
- RUNOPT=NSTA (this will disable schedule scan at startup)
- STOPQ=YES (this will stop the queues at startup)
6- now you are ready to start CA 7 and you must do a TYPE=CKPT startup
7- when CA 7 starts all the "checkpoint" values in the checkpoint data set are reset.
8- issue CA 7 commands to verify and set schedule scan.
- SSCAN should show the following
STATUS: REQQ IS STOPPED
RDYQ IS STOPPED
NEXT SCAN WAKE-UP = 99999 AT 3679
NEXT SCAN PERIOD START TIME = 00000 AT 0000
9- issue CA 7 command to set the NEXT SCAN PERIOD START TIME to the time from the SSCAN output in step # 1
10- issue CA 7 command: SSCAN to verify the NEXT SCAN PERIOD START TIME is correct.
11- If #9 is ok, you can start schedule scan with command:
12- Check the queues to see if all jobs look good. If so, you can start the queues using command:
