In preparation for our upgrade we are build a separate LPAR and will be copying the datacom data from our production region using dfdss. These datasets will be put on now share able packs with the same production names. It has been awhile but it is my belief that all I have to do is to run a retix on each of the indexes. Is this correct?
See these informational solutions for more details on how Datacom supports DFDSS.
APAR #: QI74997 11.0 * USING IBM DFDSS TO BACKUP & RESTORE A MULTI-VOL DATA AREA.
APAR #: QI74996 11.0 * DFDSS INFORMATION Q/A.
Although these APARs show release 11.0, they are still valid in other more recent releases like 12.0, 14.0 or 15.0.
