To synchronize objects between two systems that are identified for replication by data group object entries, 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 42 (Synchronize object) and press Enter. The Synchronize Object (SYNCOBJ) command appears.

  3. At the Data group definition prompts, specify the data group for which you want to synchronize objects.

    Note: If you run this command from a target system, you must specify the name of a data group to avoid overwriting the objects on the source system.
  4. To synchronize all objects identified by data group object entries for this data group, skip to Step 5. To synchronize a subset of objects defined to the data group, at the Object prompts specify elements for one or more object selectors to act as filters to the objects defined to the data group. For more information, see Object selection for Compare and Synchronize commands.

    You can specify as many as 300 object selectors by using the + for more prompt for each selector. For each selector, do the following:

    1. At the Object and library prompts, specify the name or the generic value you want.

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

    3. At the Object attribute prompt, accept *ALL to synchronize the entire list of supported attributes or press F4 to select from a list of attributes.

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

      Note: The System 2 object and System 2 library prompts are ignored when a data group is specified.
    5. When *SPLF, *OUTQ, or *ALL are specified for the Object type prompt, accepting the default *ALL values for the Spooled file name and Spooled file job prompts will result in synchronizing all spooled files within *OUTQ objects in a library. You can qualify output queue synchronization by specifying other values. Do one or more of the following:

      • To synchronize all spooled files, accept the default *ALL values for the Spooled file name, Spooled file number, Spooled file job name, Spooled file job user, and Spooled file job number prompts.

      • To prevent spooled files in the selection from being synchronized, specify *NONE at the Spooled file name, Spooled file number, Spooled file job name, Spooled file job user, and Spooled file job number prompts.

      • To identify a specific spooled file or subset of spooled files, specify the name (or number, as appropriate) or a generic value at the Spooled file name, Spooled file number, Spooled file job name, Spooled file job user, and Spooled file job number prompts.

      Note: When identifying spooled files for synchronization, to uniquely identify spooled files, it may be necessary to specify additional criterion in the Spooled file created on system, Spooled file created date, and Spooled file created time (UTC) prompts. The time must be specified in UTC time zone. These criteria are considered for selection after meeting requirements for the specified spooled file job name, user name, and job number, spooled file name and spooled file number.
    6. Press Enter.

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

  6. 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 *SYSDFN to allow saving objects in use, or specify another value.

    2. 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. This parameter is ignored when *NO is specified for Save active.

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

    Note: When a data group is specified the following parameters are ignored: System 1 ASP group or device, System 2 ASP device number, and System 2 ASP device name.
  8. The Submit to batch prompt determines how the synchronize request will be processed. Choose one of the following:

    • To submit the job for batch processing, accept the default value *YES.

    • To run the command interactively, specify *NO.

  9. The Ignored attribute processing prompt determines whether object attributes configured to be ignored by auditing are synchronized. This prompt applies to data groups that are not switchable or whose target node is a replicate node of an application group and that have configured the ability to have audits ignore attribute differences. If these conditions exist, the default value *KEEP keeps the current values on each system and does not synchronize the ignored attributes. If you need to synchronize the ignored attributes, specify *REPLACE. This field is ignored when ignored attributes are not configured.

  10. Press Enter. If you specified *No for the Submit to batch prompt in Step 8, the request to synchronize will be started. If you specified *YES in Step 8, additional fields appear and you must do the following:

    1. At the Job description and Library prompts, specify the name and library of the job description used to submit the batch request.
    2. At the Job name prompt, accept *CMD to use the command name to identify the job or specify a simple name.
    3. Press Enter.
