Our RMDS Admin recently retired and now a user has several reports she wants either the number of versions (retention) increased or the number of days retention increased (and most of these reports use a FORM name).
Let me ask you guys about the number of versions. I located the RMDS Admin guide and in section 15.4.1 it says...if the GDG field is Y (which it is for one form that I want to update), set MAX_VERSIONS to the number of reports you want to retain. Sounds great so far but in section 15.4 it says something like...the version change takes effect after you run the batch purge to remove prior versions (which I don't know how to do). Also, in section E.1.12, it says...the GDG table does not require updating UNLESS the max number of versions is changed for a particular report.
I'm not sure if it's saying you must update the GDG table if you updated the FORMS table (max_versions parameter).
If a report uses a FORMS parameter in the JCL, do I simply just update the MAX_VERSIONS parameter in the FORMS table or do I also have to update the GDG table? If I had more time, I could experiment but the user wants this change finished in one week.
Hi....you mean contact the RMDS support guy at my company?
He's the one who retired without training anyone else but to be fair, we didn't know what to ask him until a change request came in after he retired and now his boss won't let us contact him (some kind of legal or HR rules).
