Optical Migration

Optical migration can be done as follows:
view
Optical migration can be done as follows:
  • By the backup cycle (disk to tape)
  • By a batch job (SARDSK2B)
  • By the optical migration subtask of the CA View started task
The optical migration subtask can be either automatically scheduled or manually invoked. The commands in the following sections are available for operating the subtask.

Starting the Optical Migration Subtask
Issue this operator command to start the optical migration subtask:
F SARSTC,DSK2 START
Stopping the Optical Migration Subtask
Issue this operator command to terminate the optical migration subtask:
F SARSTC,DSK2 STOP
Resuming Automatic Optical Migration
After the optical migration subtask has been stopped by the DSK2 STOP parameter, you can resume the automatic migration schedule by issuing the following operation command:
F SARSTC,DSK2 RESUME
 
Note: 
Automatic migration is determined by the DSK2MIGD, DSK2TIME, and DSK2INTV parameters.
Submitting the Optical Migration Batch Job
You can submit this batch job (in member SARDSK2B of CAI.CVDEJCL) to perform a single pass of the CA View disk database, and migrate any reports destined for optical disk.
//EXAMPLE JOB ACCOUNT,PROGRAMMER //SARDSK2B EXEC PGM=SARDSK2B,PARM='VIEW.SYSTEM1' //STEPLIB DD DSN=CAI.CVDELOAD,DISP=SHR //SARD2LST DD SYSOUT=X,DCB=BLKSIZE=3990 //SARPATAB DD DSN=VIEW.SYSTEM1.SARPATAB(ERO),DISP=SHR
In the SARDSK2B statement, specify your CA View database as:
PARM='
dbase.name
'
SARD2LST DD Statement Migration Report
The SARD2LST DD statement is optional. This statement creates the SARD2LST report, which lists any reports that were migrated to optical. Here is an example of the report:

SARPATAB DD Statement
The SARPATAB DD statement specifies the name of the data set containing your ERO (Expanded Retention Option) table.
This statement is required if you specify optical retention in your ERO table with the DSK2DAYS parameter. The optical subtask reads the ERO table to determine migration options.
