ASF data and definition areas can be processed by the UNLOAD and RELOAD utilities but additional steps must be taken to insure that the operation is successful. 
Running an UNLOAD/RELOAD against an area associated with an ASF database requires the following steps:
  1. Prepare the environment to run the UNLOAD/RELOAD utilities
  2. Run the IDMSRSSM program to:
    • Create a syntax for the IDMSRSSD subschema that you will use to unload and reload the ASF data areas
  3. Review the IDMSRSSD subschema syntax produced by the IDMSRSSM program and generate it.
  4. UNLOAD and RELOAD the ASF data or definition areas.
  5. Run the IDMSRUPD program to update the RDEFREC records in the ASF definition area with the new db-keys of the table header records (RFUR-nnnnnn-OOAK).
Each of these steps is described in the remainder of this appendix.
