Issue/Introduction



How can I get a report of Archive or Backup records from the FILES data set?

Environment

Release:
Component: DISKOS

Resolution

The LISTD simply displays the raw tech info about the data sets CA Disk has processed. 
The detail of whether the DSNINDEX record is of a backup or archive is encoded in 
the Flag bytes and bits. 

See the User Guide, topic: LISTD Flags, about pg 409. 
In the first flag byte, a value of x'80' or higher means that record is of an Archive. 
  
Another method is to run a LISTD with these parms... 
  
LISTD FIELDS=(DSNAM,FLGSC) 
  
DSNAM -- Fully qualified data set name 
FLGSC -- FLAG1 BIT 0—Scratched 
  
All the FIELDS that can be specified are listed in the UG, 
topic: Possible Values for LISTD FIELDS= Parameter, about pg 405. 
  
Now, there is something easier... 
CA Vantage or GMI provides a simpler way to list the object records with simple Y or N values 
for each data set making it much easier to see and Filter to get the info you want. 

In the Object tree go to: Backup and Archive Mgmt. / CA Disk / Dsnindex Records [object DMSINDEX].
Look for the column, "Scr" [Scratched]. 
'N' means that record is for a Backup of the data set 
'Y' means that record is for an Archive of the data set.
