Use this procedure to start journaling for IFS objects identified by IFS tracking entries.

This procedure invokes the Start Journaling IFS Entries (STRJRNIFSE) command. The command can also be entered from a command line.

To start journaling for IFS objects, do the following:

  1. If you have not already done so, load the IFS tracking entries for the data group. Use the procedure in Loading IFS tracking entries.

  2. Access the journaled view of the Work with DG IFS Trk. Entries display as described in Displaying journaling status for IFS objects.

  3. From the Work with DG IFS Trk. Entries display, type a 9 (Start journaling) next to the IFS tracking entries you want. Then do one of the following:

    • To start journaling using the command defaults, press Enter.

    • To modify the command defaults, press F4 (Prompt) and continue with the next step.

  4. The Start Journaling IFS Entries (STRJRNIFSE) display appears. The Data group definition and IFS objects prompts identify the IFS object associated with the tracking entry you selected. You cannot change the values shown for the IFS objects prompts1.

  5. Specify the value you want for the Start journaling on system prompt. Press F4 to see a list of valid values.

    If journaling is started on the source system, a journal entry will be generated into the user journal. As a result, replication processes will start journaling for these objects on the target system if the data group definition specifies *YES for Journal on target (JRNTGT).

  6. To use batch processing, specify *YES for the Submit to batch prompt and press Enter. Additional prompts for Job description and Job name appear. Either accept the default values or specify other values.

  7. Optional: If the file is journaled to a journal that is different than the configured journal and you have determined that it is ok to force journaling to the configured journal, press F10 (Additional parameters) to display the Force to configured journal (FORCE) prompt.

    Change the FORCE prompt to *YES to end journaling to a journal that is different than the configured journal and then start journaling using the configured journal. This value will also attempt to start journaling for objects not currently journaled. Journaling will not be ended for objects already journaled to the configured journal. For more information, see Forcing objects to use the configured journal.

  8. The System 1 file identifier and System 2 file identifier prompts identify the file identifier (FID) of the IFS object on each system. You cannot change the values2.

  9. To start journaling on the IFS objects specified, press Enter.

1.   When the command is invoked from a command line, you can change values specified for the IFS objects prompts. Also, you can specify as many as 300 object selectors by using the + for more values prompt.

2.   When the command is invoked from a command line, use F10 to see the FID prompts. Then you can optionally specify the unique FID for the IFS object on either system. The FID values can be used alone or in combination with the IFS object path name.
