DISK BACKUP AND RESTORE

Issue/Introduction

An Archive batch/JCL job was running and was inadvertently cancelled.  When the Archive is rerun message: ADSDM455 2112 NO END OF FILE (RECORD TYPE "E") FOUND FOR FILE NBR is issued.

Because the original Archive job was cancelled it leaves the ARCHVOL in an opened state and it will need to be closed in order for IXMAINT to process it.

 

Environment

Release : 12.5 and 14.0

Component : Disk Backup and Restore

Resolution

When a process fails (or is cancelled) while writing to an output volume, the ARCHVOL is marked as OPEN and will remain in that state for the next two (2) days grace period.

The IXMAINT job should simply bypass the volume and continue processing other volumes in the list. After two (2) days the volume that was open at the time of the failure (or cancellation) will be picked up and processed normally.

To circumvent the two day grace period, you can run the IXUPDATE RESET command within these parms:

RESET KEY=nnnnnn,CLOSED

This will turn-off the OPEN flag so the ARCHVOL volume can be used for Merge, Purge or IXMAINT.
