DBINIT and DBUPDATE Settings

The DBINIT member, RunTimeMVSHLQPrefix.SAMPLIB(DBINIT), is used when CAMSM starts for the first time. The CAMSM installer sets the content of this member.

The DBINIT member,
RunTimeMVSHLQPrefix
.SAMPLIB(DBINIT), is used when
CSM
starts for the first time. The
CSM
installer sets the content of this member.
Change the member content only when
Broadcom Support
requests it. The values set for some keywords may vary between the
CSM
Setup Options file and
RunTimeMVSHLQPrefix
.SAMPLIB(DBINIT) member. Therefore, it is important that you closely follow the instructions from
Broadcom Support
.
The DBINIT member is allocated to DBINIT DD of the
CSM
startup JCL (
RunTimeMVSHLQPrefix
.JCL(MSMTCSRV)). The DBINIT member is used only when
CSM
is run for the first time.
At startup, values from the DBINIT member are stored in the database. Some of the values can be set only once. You cannot change them, or changing the values does not have any effect. You can modify the other values later using the web-based
CSM
interface.
To modify the values that cannot be modified using the web-based interface, you can use the DBUPDATE DD. The DBUPDATE DD is processed during
CSM
startup.
Update these values only when
Broadcom Support
requests it. Otherwise, you may cause data inconsistency.
The contents of DBINIT and DBUPDATE are records that can be either comments starting with # or value settings in the following format:
setting
=
value
The values are not verified during DBINIT or DBUPDATE processing.
