There are some considerations to keep in mind when defining data for replication. Not only do you need to determine what is critical to replicate, but you also need to consider data that should not be replicated.

As you identify your critical data, consider the following:

  • Do not place user created objects or programs in the LAKEVIEW, MIMIXQGPL, or VSI001LIB libraries or in the IFS location /visionsolutions/http/vsisvr. Any user created objects or programs in these locations will be deleted during the installation process. Move any such objects or programs to a different location before installing software. The one exception is that job descriptions, such as the MIMIX Port job, can continue to be placed into the MIMIXQGPL library.

  • Only user created objects or programs that are related to a product installation should be placed within the product’s installation library or a data library. Examples of related objects for MIMIX products include user created step programs, user exit programs, and programs created as part of a MIMIX Model Switch Framework implementation. 

  • Certain types of information must not be replicated. Also, some temporary data associated with applications may not need to be replicated. Table 3 identifies what data to exclude from replication.

    Type

    Do Not Replicate

    Application Environment

    Temporary objects or files

    You may not need to replicate temporary files, work files, and temporary objects, including DLOs and stream files. Evaluate how your applications use such files to determine if they need to be replicated.

    System Environment

    Libraries

    IBM-supplied libraries, files, and other objects for System i, which typically begin with the prefix Q.

    User profiles

    System user profiles, such as QSYSOPR and

    QSECOFR

    MIMIX Environment

    Libraries

    (and contents)

    LAKEVIEW

    MIMIXQGPL

    MIMIX product installation libraries

    MIMIX data libraries - for example, mimix_0 and

    mimix_1.

    MXIWIZ*

    VSI001LIB

    #MXJRN* (MIMIX journal libraries)

    Note: MIMIX is the default name for the MIMIX installation library -- the library in which Assure MIMIX is installed. MIMIX data libraries are associated with a MIMIX installation library and have names in the format installation-library-name_x, where x is a letter or number.

    LAKEVIEW

    MIMIXOWN

    MIMIXCLU

    iOptimize Environment

    If iOptimize is installed on the same system or in the same partition as MIMIX, do not replicate the following:

    Libraries

    (and contents)

    IOPT

    IOPT71

    IOPTSPLARC

    IOPTOBJARC

    Note: IOPT is the default name for the iOptimize installation library -- the library in which iOptimize is installed. iOptimize data libraries are associated with an iOptimize installation library and begin with the default name.

    MIMIX Director™ Environment

    For MIMIX Director, 8n is the release level. For example, n=1 in release 8.1. If MIMIX Director is installed on the same system or in the same partition as MIMIX, do not replicate the following:
