Search resources are available on the upper right of any page.
Use a full name or a pattern:
A search can be invoked for a data set, volume or unix object by using the full name or a pattern. Partial matches are returned.
When searching for a data set, the search displays available backup copies from incremental backup, full dumps, archived data sets and cloud data sets.
The search results page is divided into tabs:
- 1.The first tab displays data sets
- 2.The second tab displays full volumes
- 3.The third tab displays z/OS UNIX objects
By default, the results are displayed in ascending name order. Each column can be used for sorting, the sort icon is visible when clicking the column name. Additionally, the table contains column filters to allow further filtering of the results.
It is possible to perform immediate actions on the displayed items. Actions can be performed on an individual item using the 3-dot menu, or on multiple items using the actions listed on the upper right side of the page.
This value indicates the resource complex and can be used to distinguish between data sets or volumes with the same name in different complexes. The resource complex is defined in the
agent.yml, with a default of the
group-&SYSPLEX. An agent can be associated with one resource complex, several agents can be associated with the same resource complex. Agents sharing the same resource complex can all interact with the same resources, actions such as backup/archive/recall/restore/list are all dependent on the resource complex parameter.
View resource details by selecting the “More details” option from the 3-dot menu:
A popup window showing the data set’s details is displayed.
View the resource activity log by selecting the “View backup log” option from the 3-dot menu:
A popup window showing the resource backup log is displayed.
Select the “Restore” option from the 3-dot menu:
Use the “Advanced SMS parameters” tab to set the SMS attributes of the restored data set. These parameters will be passed to the ACS routines, unless “Bypass ACS routines” is specified. For more information, see the IBM DFSMS documentation.
The parameters are:
When done, click “Restore” to restore the data set.
Restoring a full dump disk requires both admin and a restore permission:
When done, click “Restore” to restore the volume.
When done, click “Restore” to restore the file.
Select the “Recall” option from the 3-dot menu:
A popup window with recall parameters is displayed.
Use the “Advanced SMS parameters” tab to set the SMS attributes of the recalled data set. These parameters will be passed to the ACS routines, unless specified “Bypass ACS routines”. For more information, see the IBM DFSMS documentation.
The parameters are:
When done, click “Recall” to recall the data set.
A cloud data set is a data set that was imported from tape to cloud by the DATA SET IMPORT policy. The “Export” option provides several methods for exporting the data set for use by z/OS applications. Select the “Export” option from the 3-dot menu:
Since tapes work differently than DASD, data sets that were originally allocated on tapes can have attributes that are not always applicable for DASD allocation.
Also, data sets on tape do not have the associated space attributes required for DASD allocation, meaning that the allocation parameters that would be used are the ones specified during the “Export” action.
Specify the following parameters:
By default, the exported data set will be allocated in a DATA SET in z/OS format, on DASD, with size as automatically calculated based on the cloud data set size. The UI provides additional parameters to set the allocation parameters and overwrite SMS parameters.
When choosing the parameters, consider the following:
Use the “Allocation parameters” tab to provide the allocation attributes of the exported data set:
Use the “Advanced SMS parameters” tab to set the SMS attributes of the exported data set:
When done, click “Export” to export the data set.
Select the "Delete" option from the 3-dot menu:
Click "Delete" to delete the data set.
Select the resources to be deleted and click “Delete” button above the table, next to the page size selector. Check the checkbox next to NAME in the heading bar to select all the resources that are currently displayed on the screen.
The “Prepare Stand-Alone Copy” option in the 3-dot menu is part of the stand-alone restore process. The action is available only to Model9 administrators and will not be visible to non-admin users. If the original full dump was created using DFDSS_GZIP, it will not be possible to create a stand-alone copy of it.
After the user confirms the action, an asynchronous activity is created in the management server.
Once the stand-alone copy is created, select the “View Log” option from the 3-dot menu to display information pertaining to the stand-alone copy, including:
- Source volume, backup date and size
- Output directory path, name and size of each dump section
- Restore command required for restoring data from the Stand-Alone copy
The activity run of "Data Set Cleanup" policy type will scan all SMS resource eligible for deletion according to the SMS Management Class settings or by the catalog entry. Data sets that were created with an expiration value of 0 will be eligible for deletion the day after they are created in order to prevent unintended data removal.
