ACF2 ACF2 - DB2 Option ACF2 for zVM ACF2 - z/OS ACF2 - MISC


Running the ACFESAGE unload against, ACF2 REL 16 / MVS SP7.2.2, The unload contains 0100, 0110, and 0111 records, plus others. But when running the ACFESAGE unload against ACF2 REL 15 / MVS SP7.1.3, the unload does not contain any 0100, 0110, 0111 records. It starts with the 0200 records. Why does the unload not contain the expected 0100's records?


Release : 16.0
Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS


ACFESAGE and SAGREC work together in creating the flat file output. A newer SAGEREC cannot be used without making changes to ACFESAGE to fill in the newer values.

When using a program to read the data, the SAGEREC must be at the same level as when the flat file was created. One option is to STEPLIB to a more current ACFESAGE which contains the 0100's records.
