DISK BACKUP AND RESTORE

Issue/Introduction

After upgrading CA-Disk from 12.5 to 14.0 (or applying RO99395) home grown reports are failing.
Home-grown processes based on the positional output of the VREPORT ALLOCS report may not work as expected.
The format of this report changed as a result of this upgrade.
Is there a way to get the v12.5 report output from v14.0?

Resolution

The changes are due to the 1 TB EAV support (RO99395) that was GA for 12.5 in Dec of 2017.   The changes are not new for 14.0.  

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION OF RO99395 -
 Updates to the DISK ALLOCS, DSINDX, DSUTIL, FREESP, LAYOUT, MEMBER,
 MVDICT, POCCHH, PODUMP, POTTRD, SPF and SVDICT reports for use with
 1TB EAV DASD.

Note that the following reports have changed format to accommodate the values possible when reporting on one terabyte EAV DASD volumes:
 ALLOCS, DSINDX, DSUTIL, FREESP, LAYOUT, MEMBER, MVDICT, POCCHH,  PODUMP, POTTRD and SVDICT.

If customers have used the ISPF Reports to generate their own reports, those need to redone for 14.0 since the fields have changed. 

Also needed to be redone in 12.5 once RO99395 was applied.

The reports will not be changed back.
