I have three LPARS that share the same ACF2 security database. When I first set up Cleanup for ACF2, I had a tracking file setup on each LPAR. I see that CA recommends using one shared tracking file. The use of two tracking files is supported but not common because of the additional overhead. So I want to merge the three tracking files into one and use that one for all three LPARS. How do I merge the tracking files?
Create a 'composite' DB file by concatenating the current tracking files in IEBGENER SYSUT1. The resulting composite SYSUT2 file should then be updated via the ***#DBU program. The result should be a new 'merged' DB file that can be used moving forward. Here is a sample:
//jobcard //STEP1 EXEC PGM=IEBGENER //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* //SYSUT1 DD DSN=CLEANUP.LPAR1.TRACKING.FILE,DISP=SHR // DD DSN=CLEANUP.LPAR2.TRACKING.FILE,DISP=SHR // DD DSN=CLEANUP.LPAR3.TRACKING.FILE,DISP=SHR //SYSUT2 DD DD DSN=CLEANUP.ALLLPAR.TRACKING.FILE, // UNIT=SYSDA,DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE), // DCB=(RECFM=VB,LRECL=584,BLKSIZE=27998), // STORCLAS=xxxxxxxx, // SPACE=(CYL,(nn,nn)) //SYSIN DD DUMMY //
