*COMPATIBILE

Select this option to allow differences that are compatible with the existing databases.

Note: This option is available only when the operating system is version V7Rx or later.

Other

Select this option to allow a combination of the following parameter differences:

*AUTL

If the object exists, then the software restore the object with the existing object authorization list. If the object does not exist, the software restores the object with no authorization list.

The software selects this option by default.

*FILELVL

Allow file level ID and member level ID differences. The creation date and time of the database file on the system does not match the creation date and time of the saved file.

The software selects this option by default.

*OWNER

Allow file ownership differences. The creation date and time of the database file member on the system does not match the creation date and time of the saved member.

The software selects this option by default.

*PGP

Allow primary group differences. The primary group of an object on the system is different than the primary group of an object from the save operation.

The software selects this option by default.

Force Object Conversion

Select this option to convert the user objects to the format that the current operating system version requires or to be compatible with the current machine.

*SYSVAL

The software selects this option by default.

*NO

Select this option to prevent the user options from being converted.

*YES*RQD

Select this option to convert the user objects that must be converted to be compatible with the current machine.

*YES*ALL

Defer ID

Restore the logical files based on the physical files. You can specify a word, or a combination of letters and numbers. When the software restores the data, the system might skip the logical files because the physical files are not available.

When the software completes the restore, the software performs the restore operation again by using the RSTDFROBJ option and the Defer ID value.

Output option

Select this option to have IBM generate a report.

The software uses *NONE as a default.

*NONE

There is no output listing created for the restore.

*PRINT

The information is printed to the spool files.

*OUTFILE

Output file

This is mandatory when you set the Output option to *OUTFILE. Use this box to specify the database file where the output of the restore is directed. If the file does not exist, the restore process creates a database file in this directory with the public authority that is the same as the specified library authority. If the file is created, the public authority of the file is the same as the create authority for the library where the file is created. The format of the file is:

<Library_Name>/<Database_File_Name>

Example: "QGPL/CVLRESTORE"

Output member

This is mandatory when you set the Output option to *OUTFILE. Use this box to specify the database file member where the output of the restore is directed. If the file does not exist, restore process creates a database file member in the specified database file.

Example: "John"

Specify the information that is printed or sent to the output file.

*OBJ

The list contains an entry for each saved object.

*MBR

The list contains an entry for each object, database file, and spooled file that was requested to be saved.
