COPY-TYPE—Use Local or Remote Image Copies

The COPY-TYPE keyword specifies whether to use local or remote image copies in the tablespace recovery.
The COPY-TYPE keyword specifies whether to use local or remote image copies in the tablespace recovery. If you specify TOCOPY LAST-COPY,
Fast Recover
retrieves the fully qualified data set name of the last local primary (LP) image copy from SYSIBM.SYSCOPY. If you also specify COPY-TYPE RECOVERY,
Fast Recover
retrieves the most recent remote primary (RP) image copy. If the RP cannot be allocated, the latest remote backup (RB) is used. If the RP and RB cannot be allocated, the previous RP is used (followed by the previous RB, and so on).
Note the following considerations:
  • The COPY-TYPE default is the system default that is set in the SITETYPE parameter of DSNZPARM.
  • COPY-TYPE is not valid with REBUILD INDEX.
This keyword has the following format:
COPY-TYPE [LOCAL|RECOVERY]
  • LOCAL
    Uses image copies with ICBACKUP type LB or blank.
  • RECOVERY
    Uses image copies with ICBACKUP type RP or RB.
