To synchronize IFS objects not associated with a data group between two systems, do the following:

  1. From the MIMIX Intermediate Main Menu, select option 12 (Compare, verify, and synchronize menu) and press Enter.

  2. From the MIMIX Compare, Verify, and Synchronize menu, select option 43 (Synchronize IFS object) and press Enter. The Synchronize IFS Object (SYNCIFS) command appears.

  3. At the Data group definition prompts, specify *NONE.

  4. At the IFS objects prompts, specify elements for one or more object selectors that identify IFS objects to synchronize. You can specify as many as 300 object selectors by using the + for more prompt for each selector. For more information, see the topic on object selection in the Assure MIMIX Administrator Reference book.

    For each selector, do the following:

    1. At the Object path name prompt, you can optionally accept *ALL or specify the name or generic value you want.

      Note: The IFS object path name can be used alone or in combination with FID values. See Step 12.
    2. At the Directory subtree prompt, accept *NONE or specify *ALL to define the scope of IFS objects to be processed.

    3. At the Name pattern prompt, specify a value if you want to place an additional filter on the last component of the IFS object path name.

    4. At the Object type prompt, accept *ALL or specify a specific IFS object type to synchronize.

    5. At the Include or omit prompt, accept *INCLUDE to include the object for synchronization or specify *OMIT to omit the object from synchronization.

    6. At the System 2 object path name and System 2 name pattern prompts, if the IFS object path name and name pattern on system 2 are equal to the system 1 names, accept the defaults. Otherwise, specify the path name and pattern on system 2 to which you want to synchronize the IFS objects.

    7. Press Enter.

  5. At the System 2 parameter prompt, specify the name of the remote system on which to synchronize the IFS objects.

  6. At the Synchronize authorities prompt, accept *YES to synchronize both authorities and objects or specify another value.

  7. Specify whether the synchronize request can save the object in an active environment using IBM's save while active support. Press F1 (Help) for additional information about these fields. Do the following:

    1. At the Save active prompt, accept *YES to allow saving objects in use, or specify another value.

    2. At the Save active option prompt, accept *NONE as the default, or specify another value. This parameter is ignored when *NO is specified for Save active.

  8. At the Maximum sending size (MB) prompt, specify the maximum size that an object can be and still be synchronized.

  9. Determine how the synchronize request will be processed. Choose one of the following:

    • To submit the job for batch processing, accept the default value *YES for the Submit to batch prompt and press Enter. Continue with the next step.

    • To not use batch processing for the job, specify *NO for the Submit to batch prompt and press Enter. Continue with Step 12.

  10. At the Job description and Library prompts, specify the name and library of the job description used to submit the batch request.

  11. At the Job name prompt, accept *CMD to use the command name to identify the job or specify a simple name.

  12. To optionally specify a file identifier (FID) for the object on either system, do the following:

    1. At the System 1 file identifier prompt, specify the file identifier (FID) of the IFS object on system 1. Values for System 1 file identifier prompt can be used alone or in combination with the IFS object path name.

    2. At the System 2 file identifier prompt, specify the file identifier (FID) of the IFS object on system 2. Values for System 2 file identifier prompt can be used alone or in combination with the IFS object path name.

      Note: For more information, see Using file identifiers (FIDs) for IFS objects.
  13. To start the synchronization, press Enter.
