The #IFSATR audit calls the Compare IFS Attributes (CMPIFSA) command and places the results in an output file. Table 148 lists the attributes that can be compared by the CMPIFSA command and the value shown in the Compared Attribute (CMPATR) field in the output file. The Returned Values column lists the values you can expect in the System1 Value (SYS1VAL) and System 2 Value (SYS2VAL) columns as a result of running the compare.   

Compare IFS Attributes (CMPIFSA) attributes

Attribute

Description

Returned Values (SYS1VAL, SYS2VAL)

*ALWSAV1  

Allow save

*YES, *NO

*ASP

Auxiliary storage pool

1-16 (pre-V5R1)

1-255 (V5R1)

1-System ASP

See Comparison results for auxiliary storage pool ID (*ASP) for details.

*AUDVAL

Object auditing value

*ALL, *CHANGE, *NONE, *USRPRF

*AUT

Authority attributes

Group which checks attributes *AUTL, *PGP, *PUBAUTIND, *PRVAUTIND

*AUTL

Authority list name

*NONE, list name

*BASIC

Pre-determined set of basic attributes

Group which checks a pre-determined set of attributes. The following set of attributes are compared: *CCSID, *DATASIZE, *OBJTYPE, and the group *PCATTR.

*CCSID 

Coded character set   

1-65535

*CRTTSP2

Create timestamp

SAA format (YY-MM-DD-HH.MM.SS.mmmmmm)

*DATACRC3 

Data cyclic redundancy check (CRC)

8 character value

*DATASIZE1 

Data size

0-4294967295

*EXTENDED

Pre-determined, extended set

Group which checks a pre-determined set of attributes. Compares the basic set of attributes (*BASIC) plus an extended set of attributes. The following attributes are compared: *AUT (group), *CCSID, *DATASIZE, *OBJTYPE, *OWNER, and *PCATTR (group).

*EXTAUT4

Extended authority for permissions to IFS objects in QSHELL.

A bit string indicates the permissions and privileges of the file.

*FID5

File ID

20 character hex value

*JOURNAL

Journal information

Groups which checks attributes *JOURNALED, *JRN, *JRNLIB, *JRNIMG, *JRNOPT. Results are described in Comparison results for journal status and other journal attributes.

*JOURNALED

File is currently journaled

*YES, *NO

*JRN

Current or last journal

10 character name

*JRNIMG

Record images

*AFTER, *BOTH

*JRNLIB

Current or last journal library

10 character name

*JRNOPT

Journal optional entries

*YES, *NO

*OBJTYPE

Object type

*STMF, *DIR, *SYMLNK

*OWNER

File owner

10 character name

*PCARCHIVE

Archived file

*YES, *NO

*PCATTR

PC Attributes

Group which checks *PCARCHIVE, *PCHIDDEN, *PCREADO, *PCSYSTEM

*PCHIDDEN 

Hidden file

*YES, *NO

*PCREADO 

Read only attribute

*YES, *NO

*PCSYSTEM

System file

*YES, *NO

*PGP

Primary group

*NONE, user profile name

*PRVAUTIND

Private authority indicator

No value, indicator only6   

When this attribute is returned in output, its Difference Indicator value indicates if the number of private authorities and private authority values are equal.

*PUBAUTIND

Public authority indicator

No value, indicator only6 

When this attribute is returned in output, its Difference Indicator value indicates if the public authority values are equal.

*SETGID

Set effective group ID (GID)

*YES, *NO

*SETUID

Set effective user ID (UID)

*YES, *NO

1Differences detected for this attribute are marked as *EC (equal configuration) when the compare request specified a data group and the object is configured for system journal replication with a configured object auditing value of *NONE.

2The *CRTTSP attribute does not compare directories (*DIR) or symbolic links (*SYMLNK). For stream files (*STMF), the #IFSATR audit omits the *CRTTSP attribute from comparison since creation timestamps are not preserved during replication. Running the CMPIFSA command will detect differences in the creation timestamps for stream files.

3When a stream file has Storage Freed *YES on either the source system or target system, the status of this attribute is reflected as not supported (*NS) and the data has not been compared.

4When *EXTAUT is selected, the read, write, and search/execute permissions for owner, group, and public authority are selected.

5The *FID attribute checks to ensure that stream files referenced by multiple hard links are the same on each system. It does not compare the actual FIDs; instead it checks to ensure that objects with the equivalent FID on one system have matching FIDs on the other system.

6If *PRINT is specified in the comparison, an indicator appears in the system 1 and system 2 columns. If *OUTFILE is specified, these values are blank.
