Is there a DCMT V SYSGEN VALIDATE??

  • 1.  Is there a DCMT V SYSGEN VALIDATE??

    Posted 03-29-2019 03:31 PM

    I am part way through installing maintenance on a sandbox CV. I want to see if I have actually made any changes to my SYSGEN. I know there is a DCMT V DMCL VALIDATE and wondered if there was a similar command for SYSGEN (and DBTABLE).

     

    I don't see such a command for SYSGEN but I see I can do DCMT D SYSGEN LINES, PROGRAMS, and STORAGE to see what has been change AND GENERATED since the last restart. Is this similar to the DMCL VALIDATE where the DMCL changes are not yet 'running' on my system yet? Or does the DISPLAY SYSGEN LINES show what is already active on my system even though I have not restarted the CV? Is there a way to see the changes made to the SYSGEN that have not yet been GENERATED?

    Unfortunately at this time there isn't the functionality to do this. 

     

    An idea has been posted here to develop this functionality and it is currently under review. You may want to up vote it.

    In batch there is a validate:

     

    //SYSIPT  DD *

    MOD SYS 23.

    VALIDATE.

     

    But it will only point out errors

    Excellent. 2015 predates my IDMS days, but it looks like I had up-voted that idea anyway. I'm not surprised that I had forgotten it had already been suggested.
