Use this procedure on a management system to copy a system definition, transfer definition, journal definition, or a data group definition.

Notes for data group definitions: 

  • The data group entries associated with a data group definition are not copied.

  • Before you copy a data group definition, ensure that activity is ended for the definition to which you are copying.

  • The Copy Data Group Definition command checks whether the database apply processing configuration is compatible between the data group being copied and the resource group with which the resulting data group will be associated. A data group that uses multithreaded database apply processing can only be copied into a resource group that also uses multithreading. Similarly, a data group that uses single-threading can only be copied into a resource group that uses single-threading.

Notes for journal definitions: 

  • The journal definition identified in the From journal definition prompt must exist before it can be copied. The journal definition identified in the To journal defining prompt cannot exist when you specify *NO for the Replace definition prompt.

  • If you specify *YES for the Replace definition prompt, the To journal defining prompt must exist. It is possible to introduce conflicts in your configuration when replacing an existing journal definition. These conflicts are automatically resolved or an error message is sent when the journal environment for the definition is built.

To copy a definition, do the following from a management system:

Note: The following procedure includes using MIMIX menus. See Accessing the MIMIX Main Menu for information about using these.
  1. From the MIMIX Main Menu, select option 11 (Configuration menu) and press Enter.

  2. From the MIMIX Configuration Menu, select the option for the type of definition you want and press Enter.

  3. The "Work with" display for the definition type appears. Type a 3 (Copy) next to definition you want and press Enter.

  4. The Copy display for the definition type you selected appears. At the To definition prompt, specify a name for the definition to which you are copying information.

  5. If you are copying a journal definition or a data group definition, the display has additional prompts. Verify that the values of prompts are what you want.

  6. If you are copying a system definition, specify the type of the new system definition at the To system type prompt.

  7. The value *NO for the Replace definition prompt prevents you from replacing an existing definition. If you want to replace an existing definition, specify *YES.

  8. To copy the definition, press Enter.
