IDMS IDMS - Database IDMS - ADS

Issue/Introduction

Description:

Using name conventions clearly segregates your SMP/E environments by release and makes it easy to identify the release for which an environment was created. Not including a release indicator in database file names eliminates the need for manually creating new files each time you upgrade to a new release.

Solution:

Any type of installation creates new SMP/E data sets. An upgrade does not create new database files.

  • When performing a CA IDMS SMP/E installation use a release indicator (like R185) in the high-level qualifiers when creating the SMP/E environment.
  • When performing a CA IDMS configuration you should put a release indicator in the CFGPFX variable in VARBLIST.
  • Do not include a release indicator in the DBPFX variable in VARBLIST.
