DB2 SLB utility introduced support for providing the associated HSM messages to the utility's SYSPRINT via zparm UTILS_HSM_MSGDS_HLQ.
This high-level qualifier must also be registered in HSM via a SETSYS command. Data sets that use
this high-level qualifier are defined and populated by HSM and DFDSS during BACKUP SYSTEM and
RECOVER SYSTEM processing, then allocated by Db2 and the content written to utility's SYSPRINT DD.
When using Recover Expert to invoke the SLB this information is not available unless DEBUG option is used. This produces too much data for a normal run.
This requirement is to add support to RE for the HSM messages to be written out as per the SLB utility.
We find most of the problems encountered with SLB are with HSM and having the messages with the job will assist problem investigation.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||All customers using RE to manage SLB for their site|
How should it work?
Add a DD card to the RE SLB job ie ARYHSM that contains the content of the SYSPRINT from the SLB utility.
|Priority Justification||There has been continuos difficulty with HSM issues impacting SLB. We have 150 systems and need to provide assitance to debugging. It is provided with the Db2 base utility.|
