How can I get a report of Archive or Backup records from the FILES data set?
Release: Component: DISKOS
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...
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.
