    What actions are necessary for message DBA0701I and DBA0700I?

     

     

    Scenario:

    When unloading a database from one system and reload it to another system the following informational message as likely as not appear during reload process:

    DBA0701I THE HIGH USED RBA IN CI 0 IS UNREASONABLE. A NON-IMS UTILITY WAS USED TO LOAD THE DATA BASE OR CI 0 MAY BE CORRUPT.

    DBA0700I RBA MISMATCH FOR LAST CI IN DATA BASE. RBA OF LAST CI READ IS 01E52000 BUT CI 0 INDICATES THE LAST RBA SHOULD BE 00000000.

     

    Solution:

    The messages you are seeing here indicate a low level integrity error that is not a problem. As the message suggests, the condition is probably caused by

    a non-IMS program which did not update the high-used RBA carried in CI0 of the database.                                                                                                                                          

    When IMS or an IMS utility operates on the database, the 2 RBA values will match.                                                                                                                                                 

    The mismatch will not cause IMS any problem and the next time IMS operates  on the database, the RBAs will match.
