BRMS: Allow parallel-parallel save and OMITS(*IGNORE/*PROCESS) for library objects
Instead of simply listing *ALLUSR on our control groups we use a list entry which only has one entry, *ALLUSR. The reason we do this is because we do a parallel-parallel save. Basically that's IBM speak for allowing it to support saving across multiple drives in a library. The GUI only supports using the omits if you use *ALLUSR and not a list. Therefore, if you want to do a parallel-parallel save, and handle omits with processing them sometimes and ignoring them others you cannot use the stuff within the GUI for omits. You have to set up two control groups, with two different lists, one with the omits and one without. You do not get the capability of OMITS(*IGNORE). If you really want to use a single control group then you need to submit a RFE to either: - Allow non listed plain *ALLUSR support parallel-parallel save - Allow a list vs just *ALLUSR support the GUI omits.
I am using HA replication software. I do a save on the target system. I want to use four drives in my library to speed up the save. I use the HA vendors technique for this to shutdown all the locks they have on the application software however they leave locks on some *USRIDX and *USRQ objects to continue receiving during the save (or some related process). These abort during the backup with CPF3771 - 142 objects saved from HA_USR. 12 not saved. CPF3761 - Cannot use *USRQ HA_USRQ in HA_USR. CPF3761 - Cannot use *USRIDX HA_IDX in HA_USR. BRM16A1 - Backup *ALLUSR, type *FULL completed with errors. BRM14A1 - Save of list ALLUSRLIB completed with errors. BRM10A1 - Control group TUE_FRI_HA type *BKU completed with errors.
