Use this procedure to start journaling for data areas and data queues identified by object tracking entries.

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

To start journaling for data areas and data queues, do the following:

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

  2. Access the journaled view of the Work with DG Obj. Trk. Entries display as described in Displaying journaling status for data areas and data queues.

  3. From the Work with DG Obj. Trk. Entries display, type a 9 (Start journaling) next to the object 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 Obj Entries (STRJRNOBJE) display appears. The Data group definition and Objects prompts identify the object associated with the tracking entry you selected. Although you can change the values shown for these prompts, it is not recommended unless the command was invoked from a command line.

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