The procedures in this topic use the Synchronize DG File Entry (SYNCDGFE) command to synchronize selected database files associated with a data group, between two systems. If you use this command when performing the initial synchronization of a data group, use the procedure from the source system to send database files to the target system.

You should be aware of the information in the following topics:

To synchronize a database file between two systems using the SYNCDGFE command defaults, do the following or use the alternative process described below:

  1. From the Work with DG Definitions display, type 17 (File entries) next to the data group to which the file you want to synchronize is defined and press Enter.

  2. The Work with DG File Entries display appears. Type 16 (Sync DG file entry) next to the file entry for the file you want to synchronize and press Enter.

Note: If you are synchronizing file entries as part of your initial configuration, you can type 16 next to the first file entry and then press F13 (Repeat). When you press Enter, all file entries will be synchronized.

Alternative Process:

You will need to identify the data group and data group file entry in this procedure. In Step 8 and Step 9, you will need to make choices about the sending mode and trigger support. For additional information, see About synchronizing file entries (SYNCDGFE command).

  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 41 (Synchronize DG File Entry) and press Enter.

  3. The Synchronize DG File Entry (SYNCDGFE) display appears. At the Data group definition prompts, specify the name of the data group to which the file is associated.

  4. At the System 1 file and Library prompts, specify the name of the database file you want to synchronize and the library in which it is located on system 1.

  5. If you want to synchronize only one member of a file, specify its name at the Member prompt.

  6. At the Data source prompt, ensure that the value matches the system that you want to use as the source for the synchronization.

  7. The default value *YES for the Release wait prompt indicates that MIMIX will hold the file entry in a release-wait state until a synchronization point is reached. Then it will change the status to active. If you want to hold the file entry for your intervention, specify *NO.

  8. At the Sending mode prompt, specify the value for the type of data to be synchronized.

  9. At the Disable triggers on file prompt, specify whether the database apply process should disable triggers when processing the file. Accept *DGFE to use the value specified in the data group file entry or specify another value. Skip to Step 14.

  10. At the Save active prompt, accept *SYSDFN so that objects in use are saved while in use, or specify another value.

  11. At the Save active wait time prompt, specify the number of seconds to wait for a commit boundary or a lock on the object before continuing the save.

  12. At the Allow object differences prompt, accept the default value *ALL.

  13. If you specified *SAVRST for Step 8, at the Include logical files prompt, indicate whether you want to include attached logical files when sending the file. The default, *YES, includes attached logical files that are not explicitly excluded from replication.

  14. To change any of the additional parameters, press F10 (Additional parameters). Verify that the values shown for the following parameters have the values you want:

    • Include related files 

    • Maximum sending file size (MB) 

    • Submit to batch 

    • Ignored attribute processing 

    Note: The Ignored attribute processing (IGNATR) parameter determines how to process any object attributes that have been configured to be ignored by auditing, which may be configured for non-switchable data groups and data groups whose target node is a replicate node of an application group. This parameter is ignored  when ignored attributes are not configured.
  15. To synchronize the file, press Enter.
