What are the important items to take in considerations when converting from TLMS to CA1 on a partition on which TLMS is currently active?
- The TMS subsystem entry would be after the TLMS entry as it would be placed last in the IEFSSN list dynamically.
- Before starting CA1 in a 'batch active' state, take a backup of the TLMS database prior to the 'TLMS daily jobs run. This backup should then be converted with CA-1 batch active and have the CA-1 batch utilities against it. This output should be compared to the output from the TLMS batch utilities. Verify the conversion is producing the desired output before doing the final conversion.
- Since CA1 and TLMS can't be fully activated on the same partition, CA1 should be initialized by CAS9 with
PARM(SVC=xx, INIT,OSI=NO) and the TMSINIT should be started in BATCH ACTIVE and not fully ACTIVE during the TMSC2TMC program of the conversion.
- Be sure to run TLMSCLEAN with PARM=TEST so that the MVS catalogs are not updated. This will prevent the MVS catalogs and the VMF file from being out of sync.
- Regarding the conversion by itself :
- Don't forget to translate all TLMS retentions rules defined in the RMF file to the CA-1 RDS file, including the default retention before running TMSEXPDT.
- Don't forget to translate the movement of the cartridges defined in the TLMS RMF file to the VPD file of CA1 before running Vault management.
- Don't forget to run the CA-1 TMSPTRS after the conversion and verify the output.
- Don't forget to remove the TLMS subsystem from the IEFSSNxx for the next IPL after the conversion.
- The OCTLG and ROBSCR parameters are very important to be activated when CA-1 is fully active.
