Error description

  • NetView is accessing the Canzlog archive datasets too early
    (before HSM is started). Document implications with NetView APAR
    OA40960.
    NetView's attempt to access the Canzlog archive datasets prior
    to SA starting HSM (Hierarchical Storage Management) can result
    in a lockout situation. SA cannot start HSM because it's queued
    up behind NetView's request to access archive datasets.
    Solution:
    NetView APAR OA40960 introduces a new CNMSTYLE statement,
    ARCHIVE.ACCESSDELAY. This tells NetView how long to wait before
    attempting to access any archive datasets (normally, when HSM
    is expected to be available).
    When the delay time expires, a 'RESTYLE ARCHIVE' is performed
    and access to archive datasets takes place.
    To allow access as early as possible, the 'RESTYLE ARCHIVE'
    command can be coded/issued as a POSTSTART command for
    application HSM. When the RESTYLE ARCHIVE is issued before the
    ARCHIVE.ACCESSDELAY timer expires, the outstanding timer is
    canceled, to avoid another RESTYLE ARCHIVE from being issued.
