Issue/Introduction

Two Librarian Master files got deleted and need to recreate them using a third Master file as a model.

Would it be possible to use ELIPS to do this instead of using batch?

Resolution

The ELIPS Create Master File can be used to create the INIT batch job.

1) run an Index report of the Master file the new Master files are be modeled after:
 
//JOBCARD     
//STEP1       EXEC     PGM=AFOLIBR,PARM='NRJS,NJTA'
//SYSPRINT    DD       SYSOUT=*
//LIST        DD       SYSOUT=*
//INDEX       DD       SYSOUT=*
//OSJOB       DD       DUMMY
//MASTER      DD       DSN=YOUR.LIBR.MASTER,DISP=SHR
//SYSIN       DD       *
-OPT INDEX(S)
/*
//
 
 
2) On the ELIPS Create Master panel specify:
  • the type of Master - BDAM, VSAM or Wide Record
  • the name of the new Master file
  • the file specifications
  • using the Index report set the Options like number of Archive levels as needed
            ** Use the PF1 Tutorial for help with the panel fields 

3) Review and run the INIT job created 
4) Run a new Index report against the new Master file and compare it to the Index report for the one modeled after
