The available choices for synchronizing are, in order of preference:

  • IBM Save and Restore commands: IBM save and restore commands are best suited for initial synchronization and are used when performing a manual synchronization. While MIMIX SYNC commands can be used, the communications bandwidth required for the size and quantity of objects may exceed capacity.

  • SYNC commands: The Synchronize commands (SYNCOBJ, SYNCIFS, SYNCDLO) should be your starting point. These commands provide significantly more flexibility in object selection and also provide the ability to synchronize object authorities. By specifying a data group on any of these commands, you can synchronize the data defined by its data group entries.

You can also use the Synchronize Data Group File Entry (SYNCDGFE) to synchronize database files and members. This command provides the ability to choose between MIMIX copy active file processing and save/restore processing and provides choices for handling trigger programs during synchronization.

If you have configured or migrated to integrated advanced journaling, follow the SYNCIFS procedures for IFS objects, SYNCOBJ procedures for data areas and data queues, and SYNCDGFE procedures for files containing LOB data. You can also use options to synchronize objects associated with tracking entries from the Work with DG IFS Trk. Entries display and the Work with DG Obj. Trk. Entries display.

This chapter (Synchronizing data between systems) includes additional information about the MIMIX SYNC commands.
