Issue/Introduction

Running a GOA script using the CATALOGJ object give the incorrect results.

 

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager

Resolution

This problem is caused by a misunderstanding of the contents of the CATALOGJ object. The object is actually a pro-grammatically created join of the CATALOGH and LSPACEPO objects. This fact is mentioned in the help on the object. It means that the CUA1 field and all the fields to the right of it are taken from the LSPACEPO object and refer to the volume and not to the file (catalog). Therefore, these fields cannot be used to test the size of a file. 
To avoid similar misunderstandings, this object is now considered obsolete and will be replaced in Vantage 14.1 with a standard join object.
