Running the Convert Data Group IFS Entries (CVTDGIFSE) command will convert IFS entries for an enabled data group from system journal (object) replication to user journal (database) replication.

Important! Do not make changes to existing IFS entries for the data group or perform a switch for the data group while this command is running. An inquiry message will be issued immediately before changing the existing data group, so that you can ensure that transaction processing is caught up before continuing with the conversion before responding to the inquiry message.

This process may take some time. The time required depends on a number of factors including the number of specified IFS objects (IFS entries), how many objects they identify, and your environment. The CVTDGIFSE command runs interactively and requires your response to inquiry messages while the conversion is in progress. Additionally, you may also be prompted to provide input for additional commands.

To convert existing IFS entries for an enabled data group to user journal replication, do the following from a management system:

  1. If possible, ensure that all pending activity for IFS objects has completed. Use the command WRKDGACTE STATUS(*ACTIVE) to display any pending activity entries. Any activities that are still in progress will be listed.

  2. From a command line type the following and press F4 (prompt):

    CVTDGIFSE DGDFN(name system1 system2)
  3. From the Convert Data Group IFS Entries prompt, specify the parameters as desired and press Enter to run the command.

    Note: MIMIX DR installations support the value *PRIORITY for the Audit after conversion (AUDIT) parameter in installations running version or higher.
  4. The Confirm Convert DG IFS Entry display appears. To start the conversion, press Enter. The display will remain until a message is issued which requires a response.

  5. Respond to any messages issued as appropriate for your environment. See Responding to CVTDGIFSE command messages.
