When a data group is specified on a compare request, MIMIX also considers configuration settings when comparing journaling attributes. For comparison purposes, MIMIX assumes that the source system is journaled and that the target system is journaled according to configuration settings.

Depending on the command used, there are slight differences in what configuration settings are checked. The CMPFILA, CMPOBJA, and CMPIFSA commands retrieve the following configurable journaling attributes from the data group definition:

  • The Journal on target (JRNTGT) parameter identifies whether activity replicated through the user journal is journaled on the target system. The default value is *YES.

  • The System 1 journal definition (JRNDFN1) and System 2 journal definition (JRNDFN2) values are retrieved and used to determine the source journal, source journal library, target journal, and target journal library.

  • Values for elements Journal image and Omit open/close entries specified in the File entry options (FEOPT) parameter are retrieved. The default values are *AFTER and *YES, respectively.

Because the data group’s values for Journal image and Omit open/close entries can be overridden by a data group file entry or a data group object entry, the CMPFILA and CMPOBJA commands also retrieve these values from the entries. The values determined after the order of precedence is resolved, sometimes called the overall MIMIX configuration values, are used for the compare.

For CMPOBJA and CMPIFSA requests, the value of the Cooperate with database (COOPDB) parameter is retrieved from the data group object entry or data group IFS entry. The default value in object entries is *YES, while the default value in IFS entries is *NO.
