Creation and maintenance functions are performed using the SARDBASE, SARRCOV (for recovery), and SARRSP utilities.
  • SARDBASE performs database maintenance such as adding space to a database, and creating and deleting a database.
  • SARGRW provides hard-copy report printout or data set output information in the database.
  • SARRCOV creates a recovery file that includes data such as tape volume serial number and data set name.
  • SARRSP restores panels, messages, and SYSOUTs to a disk database from tape backups.
    Tape maintenance functions are performed using the SARTCP, SARTCHK, SARTDR, and SARTSLST utilities.
  • SARTCP maps, copies, or salvages SYSOUTs on backup tapes.
  • SARTCHK verifies that every active CA View backup and DR tape is still cataloged, and lists any uncataloged active tapes.
  • SARTDR recreates and reloads archival disk generations or selects SYSOUT entries from tape.
  • SARTSLST checks the disk database and lists the reports that were on that tape when a tape is lost or damaged.
  • For details about SARSAM, which allows user-defined programs to directly retrieve index, SYSOUT, and panel data from the CA View database, see
