Example: The data group file entries are created by loading from the journal associated system 1 of the data group. This example assumes the configuration is set up so that system 1 in the data group definition is the source for replication. The journal definition 1 specified in the data group definition identifies the journal.


Since the FEOPT parameter was not specified, the resulting data group file entries are created with a value of *DGDFT for all of the file entry options. Because the command did not specify a MIMIX configuration source and did not specify any values for FEOPT, the FEOPT shipped default value *DFT results in the file entry options specified in the data group definition being used.

Procedure: Use this procedure to create data group file entries from the journal associated with a journal definition specified for the data group.

Note: The data group must be ended before using this procedure. Configuration changes resulting from loading file entries are not effective until the data group is restarted.

From the management system, do the following:

  1. From the MIMIX Intermediate Main Menu, type a 1 (Work with data groups) and press Enter.

  2. From the Work with Data Groups display, type a 17 (File entries) next to the data group you want and press Enter.

  3. The Work with DG File Entries display appears. Press F19 (Load).

  4. The Load Data Group File Entries (LODDGFE) display appears with the name of the data group for which you are creating file entries. At the Configuration source prompt, specify *JRNDFN and press Enter.

    File and library names on the source and target systems are set to the same names for the load operation.

  5. At the Load from system prompt, ensure that the value specified represents the appropriate system. The journal definition associated with the specified system is used for loading. For common configurations, the value that corresponds to the source system of the data group you are loading should be used. (This value should match the value specified for Data source in the data group definition.)

  6. If necessary, specify the value you want for the Update option prompt.

  7. The value of the Default FE options source prompt is ignored when loading from a journal definition. To optionally specify file entry options, do the following:

    1. Press F10 (Additional parameters).

    2. Specify values as needed for the elements of the File entry options prompts. Any values you specify will be used for all of the file entries created with this procedure.

    3. If necessary, specify a value for the Attributes to ignore prompt. This parameter allows auditing to ignore detected attribute differences to streamline environments that use non-switchable data groups and data groups whose target node is a replicate node of an application group. For other configurations, this parameter is ignored.

  8. Press Enter. The LODDGFE Entry Selection List display appears with a list of the files identified by the specified configuration source.

  9. Either type a 1 (Load) next to the files that you want or Press F21 (Select all).

  10. To create the file entries, press Enter.

All selected files identified from the configuration source are represented in the resulting file entries. Each generated file entry includes all members of the file. If necessary, you can use Changing a data group file entry to customize values for any of the data group file entries.
