Can history records be merged into an existing XCOMHIST? The history records to be merged are in a sequential file produced by running a IDCAMS REPRO of the old XCOMHIST.
The job is failing with a S213-4 when trying to create the seed record for the history file.
Release : 12.0
Component : CA XCOM Data Transport for z/OS
The wrong dataset name was specified on the DD statement for the IEBDG job that would create the seed record.
Yes, old history records from a sequential file produced by an IDCAMS REPRO can be merged into an existing/new XCOMHIST file. This can be accomplished by running a IDCAMS REPRO. Here is some sample JCL:
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//DD1 DD DISP=SHR,DSN=XCOM.HIST.SEQ
//DD2 DD DSN=XCOM.XCOMHIST,DISP=OLD
//SYSIN DD *
REPRO IFILE(DD1) OFILE(DD2) SKIP(1)
Note: Please refer to the IBM documentation for details on the IDCAMS parameters or errors.
The S213-04 abend was caused by coding the wrong dataset name on the DD statement in the IEBDG JCL being used. Once the dataset name was corrected the S213-04 was corrected. In this case the IEBDG step is NOT required for merging the history records into an existing XCOMHIST.
