Example: The data group file entries are created by loading from a library named TESTLIB on the source system. This example assumes the configuration is set up so that system 1 in the data group definition is the source for replication.


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 there is no MIMIX configuration source specified, the shipped default value *DFT on the load command 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 a library on either the source system or the target system.

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 *NONE and press Enter.

  5. Identify the location of the files to be used for loading. For common configurations, you can accomplish this by specifying a library name at the System 1 library prompt and accepting the default values for the System 2 library, Load from system, and File prompts.

    If you are using system 2 as the data source for replication or if you want the library name to be different on each system, then you need to modify these values to appropriately reflect your data group defaults. If the data group is configured for COOPJRN(*USRJRN), then an object entry must also be configured which includes the file and is cooperatively processed.

  6. If necessary, specify the values you want for the following:

    Update option prompt

    Add entry for each member prompt

  7. The value of the Default FE options source prompt is ignored when loading from a library. 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. If necessary, you can use Changing a data group file entry to customize values for any of the data group file entries.
