When you rename a journal definition, other configuration information which references it is not updated with the new name. This procedure includes steps for renaming the journal definition in the data group definition, including considerations when an RJ link is used.

If you rename a journal definition, the journal name will also be renamed if you used the default value of *JRNDFN when configuring the journal definition. If you do not want the journal name to be renamed, you must specify the journal name rather than the default of *JRNDFN for the journal (JRN) parameter.

To rename a journal definition, do the following from the management system:

Note: The following procedure includes using MIMIX menus. See Accessing the MIMIX Main Menu for information about using these.
  1. Perform a controlled end for the data group in your remote journaling environment. Use topic “Ending all replication in a controlled manner” in the Assure MIMIX Operations book.

  2. If using remote journaling, do the following. Otherwise, continue with Step 3:

    1. End the remote journal link in a controlled manner. Use topic “Ending a remote journal link independently” in the Assure MIMIX Operations book.

    2. Verify that the remote journal link is not in use on both systems. Use topic “Displaying status of a remote journal link” in the Assure MIMIX Operations book. The remote journal link should have a state value of *INACTIVE before you continue.

    3. From the MIMIX Intermediate Main Menu, select option 11 (Configuration menu) and press Enter.

    4. From the MIMIX Configuration Menu, select option 8 (Work with remote journal links) and press Enter.

    5. Remove the remote journal connection (the RJ link). From the Work with RJ Links display, type a 15 (Remove RJ connection) next to the link that you want and press Enter. A confirmation display appears. To continue removing the connections for the selected links, press Enter.

    6. Press F12 to return to the MIMIX Configuration Menu.

  3. From the MIMIX Configuration Menu, select option 3 (Work with journal definitions) and press Enter.

  4. From the Work with Journal Definitions menu, type a 7 (Rename) next to the journal definition names you want to rename and press Enter.

  5. The Rename Journal Definition display for the definition you selected appears. At the To journal definition prompts, specify the values you want for the new name.

    1. If the journal name is *JRNDFN, ensure that there are no journal receiver prefixes in the specified library whose names start with the journal receiver prefix. See Building the journaling environment for more information.

  6. Press Enter. The Work with Journal Definitions display appears.

  7. If using remote journaling, do the following to change the corresponding definition for the remote journal. Otherwise, continue with Step 8:

    1. Type a 2 (Change) next to the corresponding remote journal definition name you changed and press Enter.

    2. Specify the values entered in Step 5 and press Enter.

  8. From the Work with Journal Definitions menu, type a 14 (Build) next to the journal definition names you changed and press F4.

  9. The Build Journaling Environment display appears. At the Source for values prompt, specify *JRNDFN.

  10. Press Enter. You should see a message that indicates the journal environment was created.

  11. Press F12 to return to the MIMIX Configuration Menu. From the MIMIX Configuration Menu, select option 4 (Work with data group definitions) and press Enter.

  12. From the Work with DG Definitions menu, type a 2 (Change) next to the data group name that uses the journal definition you changed and press Enter.

  13. Press F10 to access additional parameters.

  14.  From the Change Data Group Definition display, specify the new name for the System 1 journal definition and System 2 journal definition and press Enter twice.
