CA View - Copy partial database content to another database
Article ID: 191173
In their DR system, the client wants to unload some reports from a View database, to create another database in another system. They want all of the reports to be on the disk layer, as tape will not be available.
Release : 12.2
Component : CA View
The client ran the following jobs:
. . SARDBASE Selective UNLOAD . . SARDBASE ADDDS, to create a new database. . . SARDBASE LOAD, from the selective UNLOAD. . . SARBCH /LOAD on all reports, putting all reports to disk, to status of PERM or PTMP.
They then wanted to have that database in another environment, by:
. . Running a SARDBASE UNLOAD on the new database. . . Running SARDBASE ADDDS, to create a newer database. . . Running SARDBASE LOAD, from the UNLOAD.
As a result of the above, all of the reports on the newer database will be on disk.
The above is possible ONLY BECAUSE there will not be a SARSTC task or backup run on the newer database, which will be static and only used for retrieval.
