Issue/Introduction

After upgraded our CA 7 from release 11.3 to 12.0, our daily backup job (SASSBK00 Program) failed. I believe that this backup is no longer needed since the upgrade but can you let me know what is the equivalent job to back the CA Datacom/AD database for CA 7.

 

Environment

Release : 12.1

Component : CA-7

Resolution

Now with CA 7 Release 12.0 using CA Datacom/AD database, we have 3 types of backups that you can use..



Hot Backup

Stable Backup

Data Dictionary Backup

The Two most important backups are….


(1)..HOT BACKUP:

You can schedule a Hot Backup (AL2DBHOT) once a day , let's say preferably during a period of low CA 7 activity. So better to do this after the end of the nightly batch workload.

With this hot backup it is also important to build the LXX Log SPILL activity , an example is documented in the Technical Document below Article Id:44504.


(2)..STABLE BACKUP:

A Stable Backup should be anyway scheduled each time the CA7ONL task is closed (it can be done automatically after the task closure)


(3)..DATA DICTIONARY BACKUP:

The Data Dictionary Backup is used as protection against unrecoverable DASD problems.
