Issue/Introduction

Backout on half a million records in a CA Datacom table might be needed.
It is yet being determined if the vendor submitted this many records in the file on purpose or in error, it is also a strong possibility that a program will need to be written to remove these if they need to be removed.
 

If the records need to be removed by running DBUTLTY RECOVERY OPTION=BACKWARD,  will it cause records be written in the LXX?

Environment

z/OS  
z/VSE 

CA Datacom all versions

Resolution

Yes, we write log records for all transactions that are being undone by the Backward Recovery job.
Should BACKWARD RECOVERY fail for some reason then we need to be able to backout what was done.
The problem can be resolved and the Backward Recovery job can be restarted.
