I modified a table on an existing database which has an area defined as COVERED. When the CICS URT was reopened, I got the following message:
DB05108I - COVERED DATA RESET, BASE - nnn
What does DB05108I mean and is there any impact or concern?
There is no impact or concern. DB05108I is expected when the database is not optimized (i.e. there is no ACCESS OPTIMIZE card for that database).
Refer to the CA Datacom® Messages guide which defines DB05108I as follows:
COVERED DATA RESET, BASE - nnnn
This message occurs in a Multi-User Facility when a database with one or more covered areas is opened and the complete covered memory buffers for this database need to be cleared. This occurs each time a table in the database is being opened and the status of the database in memory is not currently open with update intent. When using the MUF startup option ACCESS OPTIMIZE, the update intent is for all opens and also the time when no User Requirements Table is open, but the database has not been closed. In a MUFplex Multi-User Facility, the message also occurs whenever the base goes from a STOPPED state to a STARTED state (see message DB05109I).
None. This message is for information only.
