To synchronize objects 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 42 (Synchronize object) and press Enter. The Synchronize Object (SYNCOBJ) command appears.

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

  4. At the Object prompts, specify elements for one or more object selectors that identify 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 Object selection for Compare and Synchronize commands.

    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 see a valid 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.

    5. At the System 2 object and System 2 library prompts, if the object and library names on system 2 are equal to the system 1 names, accept the defaults. Otherwise, specify the name of the object and library on system 2 to which you want to synchronize the objects.

    6. 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.

    7. Press Enter.

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

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

    Note: When you specify *ONLY and a data group name is not specified, if any files that are processed by this command are cooperatively processed and the data group that contains these files is active, the command could fail if the database apply job has a lock on these files.
  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 *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.

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

  9. At the System 1 ASP group or device prompt, specify the name of the auxiliary storage pool (ASP) group or device where objects configured for replication may reside on system 1. Otherwise, accept the default to use the current job’s ASP group name.

  10. At the System 2 ASP device number prompt, specify the number of the auxiliary storage pool (ASP) where objects configured for replication may reside on system 2. Otherwise, accept the default to use the same ASP number from which the object was saved (*SAVASP). Only the libraries in the system ASP and any basic user ASPs from system 2 will be in the library name space.

  11. At the System 2 ASP device name prompt, specify the name of the auxiliary storage pool (ASP) device where objects configured for replication may reside on system 2. Otherwise, accept the default to use the value specified for the system 1 ASP group or device (*ASPGRP1).

  12. 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.

    • To not use batch processing for the job, specify *NO for the Submit to batch prompt and press Enter. The request to synchronize will be started.

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

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

  15. To start the synchronization, press Enter.
