For audits that compare replicated data, a difference indicating the object was not found requires additional explanation. This difference can be returned for these audits:

  • For the #FILDTA and #MBRRCDCNT audits, a value of *NF1 or *NF2 for the difference indicator (DIFIND) indicates the object was not found on one of the systems in the data group. The 1 and 2 in these values refer to the system as identified in the three-part name of the data group.

  • For the #FILATR, #FILATRMBR, #IFSATR, #OBJATR, and #DLOATR audits, a not found condition is indicated by a value of *NOTFOUND in either the system 1 indicator (SYS1IND) or system 2 indicator (SYS2IND) fields. Typically, the DIFIND field result is *NE.

Audits can report not found conditions for objects that have been deleted from the source system. A not found condition is reported when a delete transaction is in progress for an object eligible for selection when the audit runs. This is more likely to occur when there are replication errors or backlogs, and when policy settings do not prevent audits from comparing when a data group is inactive or in a threshold condition.

A scheduled audit will not identify a not found condition for an object that does not exist on either system because it selects existing objects based on whether they are configured for replication by the data group. This is true regardless of whether the audit is automatically submitted or run immediately.

Because a priority audit selects already replicated objects, it will not audit objects for which a create transaction is in progress.

Prioritized audits will not identify a not found condition when the object is not found on the target system because prioritized auditing selects objects based on the replicated objects database. Only objects that have been replicated to the target system are identified in the database.

Priority audits can be more likely to report not found conditions when replication errors or backlogs exist.
