I deleted the PROD (Production) version of a User (Entity PERSON) in the CA Datacom Datadictionary which caused a HIST (History) version of the User to be created.
Now, how can I now delete the History version? When I tried to re-add or update the User in DDUPDATE, the following errors result.
For: -ADD PERSON username Result is error: **** ERROR **** RETURN CODE = DDPOAE0001 OCCURRENCE ALREADY EXISTS For: 1003 RELT,AUTHORIZATION,$DD-SEC-ADM(PROD),PER-ATZ-AUTH Result is error: **** ERROR **** RETURN CODE = DDPR010001 CANNOT RELATE TO HISTORY For: -UPD PERSON,TSJSS,PROD Result is error: **** ERROR **** RETURN CODE = DDPISC0001 INVALID STATUS CHANGE REQUEST
In batch, use the DDUPDATE utility with the following SYSIN:
-USR user, password -DEL PERSON, person, (histver,pswd,ovrd) -END
Provide the History version, the Datadictionary password and override password.
See CA Datacom Datadictionary Batch reference Guide , chapter: "Using the -DEL Header Transaction" for more information.
