Use this procedure to start journaling for physical files identified by data group file entries. In order for replication to occur, journaling must be started for the file on the source system using the journal configured in the data group definition.

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

Do the following:

  1. Access the journaled view of the Work with DG File Entries display as described in Displaying journaling status for physical files.

  2. From the Work with DG File Entries display, type a 9 (Start journaling) next to the file entries you want. Then do one of the following:

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

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

  3. The Start Journaling File Entries (STRJRNFE) display appears. The Data group definition and the System 1 file identify your selection.

  4. 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).

  5. If you want to use batch processing, specify *YES for the Submit to batch prompt.

  6. 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.

  7. To start journaling for the physical file associated with the selected data group, press Enter.

The system returns a message to confirm the operation was successful.
