CA TPX Session Management for z/OS

Repository Tip: Backing up the CA Repository for z/OS 

03-17-2015 02:10 PM

The CA Repository for z/OS environment contains two distinct sets of DB2 tables:

 

Control tables that store information about repository products

 

■ Repository tables that store and retrieve entity attributes

 

What Components Must Be Backed Up?

 

The following components must be backed up on a regular basis:

 

■ CA Repository for z/OS DB2 Tables


■ CA Repository for z/OS DB2 History Tables


■ CA Repository for z/OS Repository data sets


Back up ALL of your repository tables regularly and at the same time using a DB2 tool such as the CA DB2 utilities.

If you back up and restore only some of the tables, it will leave them "out of sync" as there is a row in the DBX_XREF table for every row in all other repository tables.

Note: As a general rule-if a table contains the column ENT_ID, it must be backed up when the DBX_XREF table is backed up.

 

Tune the Database

 

The repository is a DB2 application and therefore tuning techniques of any DB2 application apply to the repository.
