We want to be able to use templates for image copy (and other) data sets in utilitiies in Recovery Expert.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||All users relying on template switching for large image copies|
How should it work?
It should be possible to chose between the hard coded DD-Cards currently used, and Db2 templates for allocation of data sets in utilities.
We use templates for everything in our shop for the following two reasons:
1) Naming convention
2) Switching from disk to tape for large data sets
If we imagine a system wide recovery we might not have enough disk available to do a full image copy of every table. And we do need to take an image copy afterwards.
|Priority Justification||We would need to change our entire image copy setup, if we wanted to use Recovery Expert without the option to specify templates|
|Customer Name||JN Data|
