Deliver View


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 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.
