    Export - UTIL/A/19 and Job List

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 17.01

    In preparation for doing an export from our (v17) PROD region using Util/A/19, we would like some further clarification.

    1. Where is the location of $data_files directory as indicated in the documentation as the location where the export file goes?
    UTIL A/19 - EXPORT (Exports all library’s Oracle tables into $data_files/library-name.export.z)

    2. We have named the STA libraries to be exported as below. Please confirm if this is accurate.
    a. ABC01.export.z
    b. ABC10.export.z

    3. We would like to set up the Util/A19 in the job list. Is this feasible? We have a sample line for the procedure in the job list below. Please advise.

    ! 2 3 4 5 6 7
    !Export Util A/19
    !00 19:00:00 Y ABC10 util_a_19 ABC10,abc10.export.z

    1. The abc01 $data_files directory is ./abc01/files/,
    the abc10 $data_files directory is ./abc10/files/, etc.

    2. You don't "name the STA libraries to be exported". When you submit util a/19, it will write

    abc01.export.gz_xx files to the abc01 $data_files/,
    abc10.export.gz_xx files to the abc10 $data_files/, etc.

    3. An entry in the job_list for util_a_19 would look like this:

    00 19:00:00 Y ABC10 util_a_19_b ABC10
