This procedure uses audits to ensure your environment is ready to start replication. Shipped policy settings for MIMIX allow audits to automatically attempt recovery actions for any problems they detect. You should not use this procedure if you have already synchronized your systems using the automatic synchronization method in MIMIX IntelliStart.

The audits used in this procedure will:

  • Verify that journaling is started on the source and target systems for the items you identified in the deployed replication patterns. Without journaling, replication will not occur.

  • Verify that data is synchronized between systems. Audits will detect potential problems with synchronization and attempt to automatically recover differences found.

Do the following:

  1. Check whether all necessary journaling is started for each data group. Enter the following command:

    (installation-library-name)/DSPDGSTS DGDFN(data-group-name) VIEW(*DBFETE)

    On the File and Tracking Entry Status display, the File Entries column identifies how many file entries were configured from your replication patterns and indicates whether any file entries are not journaled on the source or target systems. If your configuration permits user journal replication of IFS objects, data areas, or data queues, the Tracking Entries columns provide similar information.

  2. Audit your environment. To access the audits, enter the following command:

    (installation-library-name)/WRKAUD
  3. Each audit listed on the Work with Audits display is a unique combination of data group and MIMIX rule. When verifying an initial configuration, you need to perform a subset of the available audits for each data group in a specific order, shown in Table 76. Do the following:

    1. To change the number of active audits at any one time, enter the following command:

      CHGJOBQE SBSD(MIMIXQGPL/MIMIXSBS) JOBQ(MIMIXQGPL/MIMIXVFY) MAXACT(*NOMAX)
    2. Use F18 (Subset) to subset the audits by the name of the rule you want to run.

    3. Type a 9 (Run rule) next to the audit for each data group and press Enter.

      Repeat Step 3b and Step 3c for each rule in Table 76 until you have started all the listed audits for all data groups.

      Rules for initial validation, listed in the order to be performed.

      Rule Name

      i. #DGFE
      ii. #OBJATR
      iii. #FILATR
      iv. #IFSATR
      v. #FILATRMBR
      vi. #DLOATR
    4. Reset the number of active audit jobs to values consistent with regular auditing:

      CHGJOBQE SBSD(MIMIXQGPL/MIMIXSBS) JOBQ(MIMIXQGPL/MIMIXVFY) MAXACT(5)
  4. Wait for all audits to complete. Some audits may take time to complete. Then check the results and resolve any problems. You may need to change subsetting values again so you can view all rule and data group combinations at once. On the Work with Audits display, check the Audit Status column for the following value:

    *NOTRCVD - The comparison performed by the rule detected differences. Some of the differences were not automatically recovered. Action is required. View notifications for more information and resolve the problem.
Note: For more information about resolving reported problems, see Interpreting audit results.
