SAE – What’s It All About?
Overview
Introduction
SAE (Stand Alone Environment) is the standard for large system repair and
recovery. Worldwide, thousands of technical professionals depend on SAE
(and its companion product, IMAGE Focus) as indispensable tools for
managing of all levels of z/OS systems and Sysplex configurations.
In This Part
This part contains the following topics:

The Environment
Standalone
Operation
Perhaps the most unique part of SAE is its fundamental method of operation.
Unlike other System Management Tools, SAE runs in a completely
standalone mode. This method of operation is so complete that SAE provides
its own operating system environment - the SAE environment is completely
detached from z/OS and its subsystems.
Key Features
SAE has the following key features:
Feature
Description
Self-loading
SAE requires minimal installation. When IPLed, SAE is active and
accessible in seconds. The SAE environment does not depend on
any other software or catalogs, and it provides full dataset access.
Complete
Security
SAE is functional when normal security systems are not available.
As an added safeguard against unwarranted usage, SAE provides
integrated multi-level security. Each SAE application and its
related functions are password protected. You can log each
interaction, from initialization to shutdown, to a completely secure
dataset.
Input/Output
SAE controls all I/O requests. This allows SAE applications (like
ACTION SERVICES and DASD ERASE) to perform fast I/O
while reading and updating files or catalogs. SAE provides console
displays and screens for user input/output.
Data Integrity To ensure another system cannot access a DASD unit during
editing, zapping, and catalog alter functions, SAE provides multisystem data integrity by issuing a HARDWARE RESERVE.
The DASD unit is always in a RESERVED state when any edit,
zap or catalog alter screen displays. The unit is also reserved during
several alteration processes (for example, dataset rename). If SAE
attempts I/O to a volume that is reserved by another system (Start
Pending), an I/O error is reported by SAE. Because SAE does not
reserve the volume, you can see the error during a
Browse/Verify/Listcat operation.
Full-Screen
Interface
SAE controls all interaction using any attached local, non-SNA,
3270 terminal. This full-screen support (modeled after ISPF)
results in fast operator start-up with little, if any, need for training.
All SAE screens support full-screen operation, so you can modify
fields in any order. In addition, SAE supports INSERT, DELETE
and ERASE EOF keys, as well as 24 PFkeys.

The Applications
Reasons for
Using
Applications
Applications that run in the SAE environment are designed:


to enhance your ability to quickly diagnose, repair and recover from a system
failure
as an alternative to the floor system that is provided at their Disaster Recovery
Site
All applications are completely integrated, and exploit the SAE
environment’s features.
List of
Applications
You can access the following applications from the SAE Primary
Applications Menu:
Application
Description
ACTION
SERVICES
The ACTION SERVICES application provides complete access
to all DASD Devices and Datasets. The ACTION SERVICES
interface automatically generates a Unit, Volume, or Dataset
selection list modeled after ISPF. You can use these lists to
locate critical datasets or members, and use specific ACTION
SERVICES to make system repairs. The ACTION SERVICES
set includes: Edit, Copy, Delete, Save, Undelete, Altercat, ZAP,
Rename, and Allocate.
FAST DASD
ERASE
Often used in conjunction with disaster recovery testing, Fast
DASD Erase offers a cost effective alternative to standard dataerasing utilities. Fast DASD Erase totally erases all user
information and produces complete audit reports in the time it
would take to reinitialize the VTOC's on all volumes.
RESTORE
RESTORE is the fastest way to restore a single dataset. Unlike
other backup and recovery systems that require you to restore a
complete volume, RESTORE lets you restore any single dataset
or member originally created using IEBCOPY, IEBGENER,
DFSMSdss or FDR. RESTORE performs full volume restores
from DFSMSdss or FDR if required.
Note:
SAE does not use FDR or DFSMSdss in processing
tapes created by those products. The file format of FDR
and DFSMSdss tapes vary and may change from
release to release. SAE may not support all current
FDR or DFSMSdss formats or the formats of future
FDR or DFSMSdss releases.

The Applications, Continued
List of Applications (continued)
Application
Description
HARDWARE
CONFIRMATION
HARDWARE CONFIRMATION inspects your hardware
configuration and the accessibility to all I/O devices.
HARDWARE CONFIRMATION checks on the status,
availability and address of each I/O device.
Image Services
Image Services helps you rapidly repair your z/OS Systems
using both INSPECT and BLUEPRINT COMPARISON
INSPECT automatically isolates the components that
comprise a specific z/OS image. Results are almost
instantaneous. They include a log of the steps and results in
the validation process, which are then available for review
on-line or in hard copy. INSPECT identifies and then
accesses only the volumes and datasets for that specific z/OS
image under investigation. This powerful application
simplifies repairs and ensures that the datasets being
analyzed and edited are the ones being used by the failed
Image. Installations that maintain multiple z/OS Images will
save time during critical system outages because FOCUS
will automatically guide users to the specific SYSRES,
IODF, CATALOG and/or DATASET(s) that need repair.
Concurrently, SAE provides the ACTION SERVICES that
are required to complete the job.
BLUEPRINT COMPARISON works with the z/OS-based
product IMAGE Focus to identify changes that have
occurred in system parameter libraries. This allows you to
quickly identify the root of any system problem.
1-12
System Requirements
Supported
z/OS ICKDSF
Systems
SAE supports datasets that reside on z/OS ICKDSF formatted 3390, 3380,
3375, 3350, 3330 or 9345 direct access storage devices. VTOCs in both OS
and INDEXED format are supported.
For the newer Extended Address Volumes (EAVs) there are some
restrictions. SAE R16 does not support I/O operations into the Cylinder
Managed Space but does support I/O operations to the Track Managed Space.
This means that for datasets that reside in the Track Managed Space on
EAVs, all normal operations are supported. Operations that are at the volume
level (copy, restore, etc.) are not supported for EAVs.
Releases of SAE prior to R15 are not “EAV aware” and should not be used
with EAV volumes.
Supported CPUs
SAE R16 will only run on z/Architecture CPUs. For use on S/370/XA,
S/370/ESA and S/390 CPUs, SAE R15 must be used.
Supported
3278-2 Devices
SAE supports 3278-2 (24 rows/80 columns) like devices that are locally
attached via a 3x74 control.

What’s New in Release 16
zArchitecture
SAE Release 16 has been reengineered to operate on z/Architecture
processors. z/Architecture introduced significant changes to the Prefixed
storage area (PSA), Program Status Words (PSW), etc. and SAE R16 has
been changed to operate in that environment.
SAE R16 will not operate on processors using S/370/XA, S/370/ESA or
S/390 architectures. However, if SAE is IPLed on a processor that is in
S/370/XA, S/370/ESA or S/390 architecture mode and if the processor
supports z/Architecture, SAE will switch the processor to z/Architecture
mode and continue. All processors since the z900 (released in the year 2000)
support zArchitecture.
Various Updates
Various improvements throughout the product.
What’s New in Release 15
EAV Support
SAE Release 15 is “Extended Address Volume (EAV) aware” and support
some operations on EAV volumes and prevents other operations that could be
destructive if used with EAVs.
SAE R15 does not support I/O operations into the Cylinder Managed Space
but does support I/O operations to the Track Managed Space. This means that
for datasets that reside in the Track Managed Space on EAVs, all normal
operations are supported. Operations that are at the volume level (copy,
restore, etc.) are not supported for EAVs.
Releases of SAE prior to R15 are not “EAV aware” and should not be used
with EAV volumes.

1-14
What’s New in Release 14
Duplicate Volser
Identifier
SAE Release 14 adds the ability to sort the Volume Selection list such that
volumes with duplicate volsers are bubbled to the top. This allows duplicate
volsers to be easily identified and volumes renamed to eliminate duplicates.

Introduction
NewEra has revised the SAE installation procedure to provide better SAE
management



SAE Distribution
A single JCL stream now contains all the SAE components required.
SAE can be pre-licensed prior to web download so that post download licensing
steps can be avoided
SAE IPL-able versions are all created from one central location.
SAE is distributed in two forms; A complete product distribution file
(SAE@FULL_FUNCTION.NEZ or SAE@ERASE_ONLY.NEZ) or a trial
product file (SAE@TRIAL.NEZ).
Both types of Distribution Files are downloaded over the internet from
NewEra.
The Product Distribution File contains a complete install of the SAE product
which can be configured and placed on DASD or Tape for IPL.
The Trial Distribution File is only used to create a tape from which SAE can
be IPLed. SAE obtained via this method is a complete product offering but
the period of time in which it can be used is limited.
Web Download
Files
Both types of Distribution Files require the use of a Windows operating
system, which is connected over the network to the z/OS System on which
you are going to install SAE.

Overview, Continued
Initial
Installation Steps
Product Distribution File
The initial SAE Installation steps for this form of distribution involve running
a single JCL stream that will create the following three datasets on your z/OS
System:



SAE DLIB - SAE Distribution Library
UTIL.CNTL - PDS containing Utility JCL members
UTIL.LOAD - PDS containing Utility Load members
The SAE Distribution Library or SAE DLIB is a dataset that contains your
master copy of SAE. You can then use the supplied SAE utilities to change
the SAE DLIB licensing and option settings.
From the one DLIB, you can then create IPL-able copies of SAE on various
devices. This method of product management provides more control, and
avoids the need for a copy of SAE on tape during the licensing and option
setting procedures. The UTIL.CNTL and UTIL.LOAD datasets provide
utilities to let you license, customize and produce IPL-able copies of SAE.
Trial Distribution File
The initial SAE Installation steps for this form of distribution involve running
a single JCL stream that will create a IPLable tape containing SAE.

Chapter 4: Licensing SAE
Licensing Release 16.0
Already-Licensed
Customers
Licensed SAE customers must follow the instructions in this chapter to authorize
SAE for their environment if the product has not been pre-licensed or changes in
licensing are required after the product has already been installed.
For the first install of the product, the NEZ File may have been pre-licensed. In these
cases, the licensing steps described here do not have to be performed. If you are
unsure if your NEZ File has been pre-licensed, contact your NewEra representative.
SAE Distribution
Library
The SAE DLIB dataset contains your SAE master copy.
CPU Licensing
Licensing SAE involves defining the serial numbers for the processors on which you
are licensed to run the product and the defining the features of the product for which
you are licensed. Your NewEra representative will provide you with Authorization
Parameters that represent your licensed SAE processors. These Authorization
Parameters are coded in the LICENSE job and must be coded exactly as provided.
LICENSE Job
The prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL dataset contains member LICENSE. This member
contains the JCL to run the DLIB@LIC utility. The DLIB@LIC utility reads the
control statements that you specify, and updates the DLIB dataset with the
authorization settings.
Procedure
To license SAE:
You use utilities to change the licensing and option settings in the SAE DLIB. Then,
from the SAE DLIB, you can create IPL-able copies of SAE on various devices. This
method of product management provides more control, and avoids the need for a
copy of SAE on tape during the licensing and option setting procedures.
Step
Action
1.
Open dataset prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL in ISPF Edit, and select
member LICENSE.
2.
Follow the instructions contained in the comments at the start of the Job.
3.
Ensure you code the following statements exactly as your NewEra
Software Representative provides them:
COMPANY=
LICCNTL=
AUTHxx=
SITEAUTH=
Note: You will receive either one or more AUTHxx= parameters, or just
one SITEAUTH= parameter, depending on the license you purchase.
4.
GA
Submit the Job.
4-31
5.
After Running
the LICENSE
Job
When the Job ends, confirm that the return code is zero.
After running the LICENSE job, the SAE DLIB dataset contains a licensed
version of SAE.
IPL-able copies of SAE created from the newly authorized SAE DLIB reflect
this new authorization.
New
Authorization
Settings
If you have previously created IPL-able copies of SAE, you must replace
them before new authorization settings come into effect. See ‘SAE IPL
Preparation’ on page 6-55 for instructions on creating IPL-able copies of
SAE.
For new installs you can customize your SAE options prior to creating IPLable copies of SAE. See ‘SAE Customization’ on page 5-33 for instructions
on how to customize SAE.
Confirming
Licensing
To confirm which processors SAE is licensed to operate on, IPL a copy of
SAE that was created from the (now-licensed) SAE DLIB.
After IPLing a licensed copy of SAE, a list of licensed processors displays at
the bottom of SAE Primary Screen (see page 12-105) when it first appears.
For example:
LICENSED= ACF1/2064-1C9 1F8A/9672-R36 1F8A/2064-106 0001/7490-000
1FC1/9672-Y96 0100/2064-1C6 01CA/9672-RC6 01FA/2064-1C4
The screen displays up to eight processors on which SAE is licensed to
operate. For each processor, the last four digits of the serial number (for
example, ACF1) display, followed by the processor model (in the above
example, 2064-1C9).
Confirming
Licensing for
Other Processors
You do not have to IPL SAE on each processor to confirm your licensing To
confirm that your licensing is correct for your other processors; review the list
of licensed processors that display.
IPLing on an
Unauthorized
Processor
If you IPL SAE on a unlicensed processor, SAE displays the following
prompt:
ENTER OVERRIDE
===>
SAE IS NOT AUTHORIZED (0). IF THIS IS AN EMERGENCY, YOU CAN OBTAIN AN OVERRIDE
CODE THAT WILL ALLOW SAE TO FUNCTION. TO OBTAIN THE CODE, CONTACT NEWERA
SUPPORT STAFF (1-800-421-5035) AND QUOTE THE FOLLOWING NUMBER – xxxxxxxx
If this occurs, contact NewEra Software to obtain an Override code that will
allow SAE to function. See ‘NewEra Technical Support’ on page 1-2.

OPTIONS Job
Overview
The OPTIONS Job defines parameter settings that influence how SAE
operates.
Setting Options
The prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL dataset contains member OPTIONS. The
OPTIONS member contains the JCL to run the DLIB@OPT utility. The
DLIB@OPT utility reads control statements (that you specify) and updates
the DLIB dataset with the options settings.
Options
Parameters
The OPTIONS Job parameters are defined later in this chapter.
Procedure
To define SAE Options:
Step
New Copies of
SAE Reflect New
Settings
Action
1.
Open dataset prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL using ISPF Edit
2.
Select member OPTIONS
3.
Follow the instructions contained in the comments at the start of the Job
4.
Code the options parameters as required
5.
Submit the job
6.
When the job ends, confirm that the return code is zero
After running the OPTIONS job, the SAE DLIB dataset contains an updated
version of SAE.
All IPL-able copies of SAE that are created from the newly updated SAE
DLIB reflect the new options settings that you defined.
Existing Installs
vs. New Installs
If you have previously created IPL-able copies of SAE, you must now replace
them in order to pick up the new options settings. See ‘SAE IPL Preparation’
on pages 4-31, 5-33, and 6-55. for instructions of creating IPL-able copies of
SAE.
If this is a new install, you may wish to authorize your copy of SAE if you
have not already done so. See ‘SAE Licensing’ on page 4-31 for instructions
on licensing SAE
5-34
SAE OPTION Report
OPTIONS Job
Report Overview
The OPTIONS Job produces a report that shows the before and after
OPTIONS settings. This report is useful in confirming your option settings
have been configured correctly.
Also, if you are uncertain of the current SAE settings in your SAE DLIB
dataset, you can run the OPTIONS job without supplying any parameters and
then use the report to view the settings.

OPTION JOB Input Parameter Keywords
Keywords
Overview
The DLIB@OPT utility in the OPTIONS Job requires you to provide
keywords.
These keywords define the options you will change and the new values for
those options. The keywords, their purpose, and their valid settings are
described in the following topics.
Specifying
Keywords
You specify keywords in the DLIB@OPT utility via OPTIONS Job’s SYSIN
DD statement.



Keywords must begin in column one.
If a keyword is repeated, options are configured based on the last occurrence.
You can specify comment cards by placing an asterisk in column one
5-38
PASSWORDx= Keyword
Passwords
Overview
You can (optionally) control access to SAE and its specific features using
passwords. You can configure up to five SAE passwords.
You can define passwords so a prompt occurs on the SAE Logon screen when
SAE is first IPLed. This is called the STARTUP password prompt, and is
used to control general access to SAE.
You can also define passwords that provide limited access to various SAE
features. You can define each password to provide access to any combination
of four pre-determined features. Then, when users try to access a feature for
which they are not authorized, a password prompt occurs, which allows a user
to enter a password with sufficient authority.
Password
Criteria
Each password must be unique and must be accompanied by an access
authority number and userid. The access authority number defines the
functions that a user may access.
SAE uses the userid to:


SAE General
Access
update the userid field for member ISPF statistics
assist the Audit Control feature (if enabled, see AUDIT_TYPE= on page 5-46).
For general access to SAE, you must define at least one password with an
access authority number of zero (0), unless the Audit Control feature is
enabled.
If the Audit Control feature is enabled, a Startup password prompt occurs,
regardless of the presence of a password with an access authority number of
0.
SAE Features
and Associated
Authority
Numbers
Each of the following SAE features has been assigned a unique access
authority number. You can add the numbers together to provide combined
access to more than one feature. The access authority number may range from
1 to 15.

Keep a Copy of
SAE That Has
No Restrictions
Defining passwords restricts who can use SAE.
Although this is probably your intent, NewEra suggests that you keep a copy
of SAE available that does not have password restrictions (perhaps on tape,
under lock and key). It would be unfortunate, if during an outage, a forgotten
password prevents you from using SAE.
5-41
GA
CONSOLEx= Keyword
Explicitly
Defining
Terminal
Addresses
After IPLing, SAE uses the first locally attached (non-SNA) display device
(terminal) that presents an attention interrupt (Enter Key) as a console.
Unsolicited
Attention
Interrupts
Under some circumstances, certain device types (for example, 7171 and
3088) create unsolicited attention interrupts and accept 3270 data streams. If
you do not define console addresses, the console, in these cases, may be
assigned to such a device.
Six Console
Addresses
You can define up to six (optional) console addresses. After you define
console addresses, SAE ignores attention interrupts for all other display
devices.
Four Digit
Hexadecimal
Numbers for
Consoles
Each console must have a four digit hexadecimal number. To remove a
console definition, code NONE or FFFF for the address. The CONSOLEx=
keyword is specified where 'x' is a number from one to six.
Keywords
CONSOLEx=aaaa
This is good if the only locally attached terminals are in your operations area.
However, you may need to explicitly define the terminal addresses from
which SAE can accept an attention interrupt. You may also want to consider
defining terminal addresses as a means of physical security of restricting
where SAE can be used.
CONSOLEx=NONE
Note
Defining console addresses restricts where you can use SAE. Although this is
probably your intent, you should still keep a copy of SAE available without
such restrictions (perhaps on tape under lock and key). It would be
unfortunate if during a system outage, changed terminal addresses prevented
the use of SAE.
5-42
ERASE= Keyword
Overview
You can enable or disable the Fast DASD Erase feature.
When disabled, SAE does not recognize the ERASE option on the Primary
Screen. SAE ships with this option enabled.
For more information, see ‘Fast DASD Erase’ on page 20-217.
Keywords
ERASE=ENABLE
ERASE=DISABLE
5-43
GA
PROTECT= Keyword
10 Protected
Volumes
You can explicitly define up to ten volume masks (Volsers) that are protected
from the Fast DASD Erase feature. For more information, see ‘Fast DASD
Erase’ on page 20-217.
Not Erasable
Once a volume is protected, no one can select it for erase. The purpose of the
protected list is to protect floor system packs at disaster recovery centers.
After defining the protected Volsers, you can use the ERASEALL command
without concern of erasing the defined packs.
Defining
Protected
Volumes
You can define protected volumes using the PROTECT= keyword. As each
PROTECT= keyword is processed, SAE adds the specified Volser to the end
of the list. If there are already ten volumes defined, the first volume is
removed when the new volume is added.
Clearing the List
To clear the entire list, code PROTECT=CLEAR.
Wild Carding
To use a wild card, place a * in any position. This implies an “always match”
condition. An ending * implies a match in all remaining positions:


Example
SYS*with match SYSxxx (where xxx is any character)
S*RES* with match SxRESx (where x is any character)

AUDIT_TYPE= Keyword
Overview
The Audit feature provides a record of the SAE user’s activities
You can enable or disable auditing. Auditing is only available when SAE is
IPLed from a DASD device. Audit datasets that contain a record of SAE
activity are created on the DASD device from which SAE is IPLed.
Two Settings
There are two possible settings that enable this feature: ENABLE and
ATTEMPT.
ENABLE
When you use ENABLE, SAE terminates immediately (wait state A7) when
an error occurs that prevents recording of audit records.
A typical error that could cause this situation involves a lack of free space on
the IPL volume. When this occurs, the copy of SAE on that volume becomes
unusable until you resolve the space situation. For this reason, when you are
using AUDIT_TYPE=ENABLE you should take special care to ensure that
other copies of SAE are maintained (on DASD or tape).
ATTEMPT
When you use ATTEMPT, SAE records audit records just as if
AUDIT=ENABLE was coded.
However, if an error occurs which prevents recording of audit records, SAE
does not terminate and remains useable (but without audit recording).
Password Must
Be Defined
To enable the Audit Control feature (ENABLE or ATTEMPT), you must
define at least one password (see PASSWORDx= keyword on page 5-39).
SAE ships with this option disabled.

keyword of PRINT_TYPE= keyword:
At SAE IPL time, SAE defines the print output destination automatically,
based on the value set for the PRINT_TYPE= keyword.
Setting
Description
OFF
OFF disables the automatic print destination processing at SAE IPL
time. PRINT_UNIT= and PRINT_VOL= are ignored and set to blanks.
REAL
REAL requests automatic print setup to a real channel attached printer.
You must define the printer’s unit address using the PRINT_UNIT=
keyword. At SAE IPL time, SAE directs all print output to the channel
attached printer at the specified unit address.
DASD
DASD requests automatic print setup to a print dataset that will be
created on a DASD device. For this setting you must code
PRINT_UNIT=, or PRINT_VOL= ,or both.
If you code PRINT_UNIT=, SAE allocates the print dataset on the
DASD device at the specified unit address.
If you code PRINT_VOL=, SAE searches all unit addresses, looking for
the specified DASD Volume. If found, SAE allocates the print dataset
on that volume. Depending of the number of devices defined to the
system, the search for the specified DASD volume may take several
minutes.
If you code both PRINT_UNIT= and PRINT_VOL=, SAE inspects the
DASD unit at the specified unit address, and allocates the print dataset
there, only if the unit’s volser matches the value coded for
PRINT_VOL=.

Preparing for DASD IPL
Overview
The prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL dataset contains member TODISK. This
member contains the JCL used to run the job that places an IPL-able copy of
SAE on a DASD volume.
IPLing SAE from
a DASD Unit
You can IPL SAE from a 3390 or 3380 DASD unit. The SAE product
occupies the IPL track on the DASD unit, as well as a SAE NUCLEUS
dataset. The IPL-able copy of SAE is built from the SAE DLIB dataset.
Prerequisites
Before creating an IPL-able copy of SAE, ensure that you have set any
required options and authorization in the SAE DLIB (see ‘SAE
Customization’ on page 5-33 and ‘SAE Licensing’ on page 4-31).
What TODISK
Does
The TODISK job uses the SAE Utility DLIB@DSK to convert parts of SAE
to a format acceptable to the IBM utility ICKDSF. This is so parts of SAE
may be written to the IPL track of the DASD volume by ICKDSF.
DLIB@DSK also moves part of SAE to the SAE NUCLEUS dataset that the
job creates. Note that the TODISK job deletes the previous SAE NUCLEUS
dataset if one exists. The DLIB@DSK utility sets the SAE NUCLEUS
dataset’s name in the portion of SAE that resides on the DASD volume IPL
Track.
Naming the SAE
Nucleus Dataset
When naming the SAE NUCLEUS dataset, remember that you must not
rename or move the dataset to another unit, because SAE must locate it
during the IPL. You do not have to catalog the SAE NUCLEUS dataset.
Ensure the SAE NUCLEUS dataset name you select is not eligible for
movement by any of your installed DASD management products. If SAE
cannot locate and read the NUCLEUS dataset during the SAE DASD IPL,
SAE enters a disabled wait state with the error code AA.
Warning
SAE IPL text occupies the same DASD area as z/OS IPL text. When creating
an IPL-able copy of SAE on DASD, ensure that the target unit does not
already contain required IPL text. Do not move SAE IPL text to your z/OS
SYSRES volume.

What TOTAPE
Does
The prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL dataset contains member TOTAPE. This
member contains the JCL that runs the job that places an IPL-able copy of
SAE on a magnetic tape volume.
IPLing SAE from
a Tape Device
SAE may be IPLed from any tape device supported by z/OS. The IPL-able
copy of SAE is built from the SAE DLIB dataset.
Prerequisites
Before creating an IPL-able copy of SAE, ensure that you have set any
required options and authorization in the SAE DLIB (see ‘SAE
Customization’ on page 5-33 and ‘SAE Licensing’ on page 4-31).
Non-Labeled
Tapes
The TOTAPE job creates a Non-Labeled (NL) tape.
Procedure
To create an IPL-able copy of SAE on Tape:
At IPL time, the processor must find an IPL bootstrap record as the first
record on the tape. For this reason the tape must be non-labeled. If the tape is
labeled, the first record is a VOL1 record label and is not IPL-able.

Preparing for CD-ROM/Network IPL
IPLing from a
Newer Processor
Most new processors support the ability to IPL from a CD-ROM or a
Network accessible file. Consult your processor’s documentation to
determine if your processor supports this type of IPL. SAE has utilities that
you can use to convert SAE to a format that can be IPLed from a CD-ROM or
a Network accessible file.
Member
TOCDROM
The prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL dataset contains member TOCDROM. This
member contains the JCL that runs the job that creates two CD-ROM IPL
files. You must move these two files to a Windows PC so that they can be
placed on a CD-ROM or moved to a processor-accessible network location.
Prerequisites
Before creating an IPL-able copy of SAE, ensure that you have set any
required options and authorization in the SAE DLIB (see ‘SAE
Customization’ on page 5-33 and ‘SAE Licensing’ on page 4-31).
Converting SAE
to an Acceptable
Format
The TOCDROM job uses the SAE Utility DLIB@CD. DLIB@CD converts
SAE to a format acceptable for processor CD-ROM/Network file IPL. The
job creates two datasets, CDFILE1 and CDFILE2. Note that the TOCDROM
job deletes the previous SAE CDFILE1 and CDFILE2 datasets if they exist.
Procedure
To create a set of SAE CD-ROM IPL files:
Step
Action
1.
Using ISPF Edit, open dataset prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL.
2.
Select member TOCDROM.
3.
Follow the instructions contained in the comments at the start of the Job
on what values to update in the JCL.
4.
Submit the job.
5.
When the job ends, confirm that the return code is zero.
6.
File Transfer the two datasets (CDFILE1 and CDFILE2) to your
Windows PC. The files must be binary transfers (do not specify ASCII).
CDFILE1 must be transferred to a file you name: SAE_CD.IPL
CDFILE2 must be transferred to a file you name: SAE_CD.INS
7.
For More
Information
Burn the two files (SAE_CD.IPL and SAE_CD.INS) onto a CD-ROM or
move them to a network location that is accessible to the processor on
which SAE is to be IPLed.

Chapter 7: Using Audit Control
Overview
Introduction
SAE’s Audit Control feature provides you with a detailed audit trail of all
SAE usage. You can only use the Audit Control feature for SAE’s DASD
IPLs.
Enabling Audit
Control
To enable Audit Control, use the DLIB@OPTutility. When SAE is IPLed
from DASD (and the Audit Control feature is enabled), SAE allocates an
audit control dataset on the IPL volume. The dataset name is created using the
prefix defined by the DLIB@OPT AUDIT_DSN keyword and the current
date and time.
In This Chapter
This chapter contains the following topics:

Using Audit
How it Works
While SAE is in use, the Audit Control feature places a copy of each
displayed screen image in the audit control dataset. For screens on which the
user entered data, Audit Control also places an after-image of the screen in
the audit control dataset. The result is an exact trace of all SAE activity.
Automatically
Allocates New
Datasets
When the audit dataset fills, Audit Control obtains additional extents as
required. If an audit dataset becomes full, Audit Control allocates another
one.
When
Encountering
Problems
If any problems arise while writing to the Audit Control dataset (for example,
an I/O error, or the volume becomes full):


SAE terminates if you configure the Audit Control feature with DLIB@OPT
parameter AUDIT_TYPE=ENABLE.
SAE continues operation (with audit processing suspended), if you configure
DLIB@OPT parameter AUDIT_TYPE=ATTEMPT.
Security
Precautions
You cannot use SAE to browse, edit, or otherwise alter the contents of an Audit
Control dataset. Ensure you implement similar z/OS security measures to limit
access to the Audit Control datasets.
Screen I/O
Performance
Degradation
Activating the Audit Control feature may result in a slight performance
degradation to screen I/O. Audit Control does not affect the performance of
internal functions.
7-62
CATAUDIT Job
Audit Control
Datasets are Not
Cataloged
The Audit Control datasets (which are allocated by SAE on the IPL volume)
are not cataloged.
SAE creates the prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL dataset during the installation.
This dataset contains JCL for job CATAUDIT (Catalog Audit) that you can
use to search for and catalog SAE-created audit control datasets.
The CATAUDIT job is provided with a DD for the SAE IPL volume. The
utility locates and catalogs any SAE-created audit control datasets that were
not cataloged.
Multiple SAE
IPL Volumes
If more than one SAE IPL volume exists, you must create multiple steps (one
step for each volume). The best way to run this job is to have it run
automatically after each z/OS IPL. Then, if SAE was used prior to that z/OS
IPL, all audit control datasets are immediately cataloged.
7-63
GA
RPTAUDIT Job
How the Report
Audit Utility
Works
The RPTAUDIT utility formats an SAE audit control dataset’s contents and
produces a report that contains each screen image exactly as the image was
displayed to the SAE user. If the user enters data on that screen, another
screen image appears, showing the data input.
Before and After
Images
This provides a ‘before’ and ‘after’ screen image report that details all
activity. The prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL dataset, created during installation,
contains JCL for job RPTAUDIT.

Backup Control System
Introduction
SAE’s z/OS Backup Control System may be used to backup datasets that can
be later restored using SAE. The SAE Dataset Restore function will restore
datasets from tapes containing IEBCOPY and IEBGENER unloaded datasets
(for more information, see ‘Restore Services’ on page 21-257).
The Backup Control System provides for easy backup, optimal tape usage,
and maintenance of control information. This control information includes the
tape Volser and file sequence number for each backup generation of given
datasets. Usage of the Backup Control Utility is not required.
IEBCOPY,
IEBGENER, and
SORT
Use of the Backup Control System requires IEBCOPY, IEBGENER and
SORT.
JCL and load modules required for the Backup Control System ship with the
SAE base product and can be found in the prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL and
prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.LOAD datasets created during the installation.
Running the
Backup Control
System
To run the Backup Control System, the load modules SAEBKUP and
SAEBKMST must be APF authorized. You may add the
prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.LOAD dataset to the z/OS PROGxx or IEAAPFxx
system parameter members, or copy the load modules to an existing APF
authorized library, in order to have this module APF authorized.
Three JCL
Members
The prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL dataset contains three JCL members for
setting up the Backup Control System:
 MSTRINIT
 TAPEINIT
 TAPETEST
These members are discussed in the following topics.

MSTRINIT
Master Init
The MSTRINIT member of the prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL dataset contains
a single step job that allocates and initializes the Backup Master File.
The Backup Master file maintains information on each dataset backup. This
includes the time and date of the backup and the tape volume and file
sequence number of where the backup resides.
Alter the JCL for
the Backup
Master
The JCL should be altered to specify a suitable name for the Backup Master
file. The DASD unit type and, if required, a specific Volser should also be
coded.
When a dataset must be restored, the fastest way to determine the Volser of
the required backup tape is to browse the Backup Master file. In creating the
Backup Master file, you should give special consideration to its location and
name. You should ensure the Backup Master file is not eligible for archiving
by your DASD management package.
8-68
TAPEINIT
Volser must be
Static
The Dataset Restore function can use a tape copy of the Backup Master file.
As the tape copy must be located in a stand-alone environment, the Volser
must be static.
Default Tape
Volser Names
By default, SAE expects the two tape Volsers to be SAEMT1 and SAEMT2.
If you use different Volsers, you must change the default by using the
DLIB@OPT utility
Protecting
Volsers
Depending on the Volsers you chose, your tape management system might
prevent you from writing over the previous copy on each tape. Keep this in
mind when choosing the Volsers like SAEMT1 and SAEMT2, which will
probably be considered “foreign” by your tape management system and hence
not be protected. If using Volsers SAEMT1 and SAEMT2, you will have to
label (IEHINITT) the tapes.
TAPEINIT
Functionality
Job TAPEINIT is used to create and catalogue the two tape datasets that will
be maintained as copies of the Backup Master file. Change the dataset name,
unit type and Volser as required.
8-69
GA
TAPETEST
Purpose of the
Test
The TAPETEST job tests if your tape management system can prevent the
writing of a new copy of the Backup Master file. Change the JCL as required
in order to allow the tapes to be re-written and test the job. If any JCL
changes were required, make the same changes to steps COPY1 and COPY2
in member SAEBKUP
Example
Member SAEBKUP in the prefix.SAE.R16.UTIL.CNTL dataset is used to
run the Backup Control System.
The PROC SAEBKUP is used, and contains four steps.



The first step, SAEBKUP, performs the actual backup operation.
The second step, SAEBKMST, updates the Backup Master file.
Steps three and four (COPY1 and COPY2) create the two tape copies of the
Backup Master file.

TAPETYP
The Backup Control System should use backup tapes from your
normal scratch pool. TAPETYP specifies the unit type of the
tapes to be used.
TAPENAM
TAPENAM specifies the starting qualifiers of the dataset name
that are given to each backup dataset. You can specify up to 23
characters. SAE adds the date, time and file number appendage
to the specified dataset name. The first file on each backup tape
is cataloged. This file does not contain backup data; instead it is
used to control the tape volume. When a tape volume is no
longer required, this dataset is UN-cataloged and the tape can be
returned to the scratch pool. Tapes are created with an
expiration date of 99000.

Backup Dataset List
List of Datasets
to be Backed Up
A list of dataset names that are to be backed up is provided to the Backup
Control System. Only partitioned and sequential datasets are supported. You
may specify a full dataset name with or without a Volser. The Volser is
required only if the dataset is not cataloged on the system that the Backup
Control System will run.
Rules
If a Volser is specified, the dataset name must be followed by at least one
blank and then the Volser. Multiple dataset names (or names and Volsers)
may be specified on the same line, but each must be separated immediately by
a comma. The list ends when a dataset name is not followed by a comma. In
general, the syntax rules are the same as the z/OS rules for SYS1.PARMLIB
members.
PARMLIB
Statements
In addition to dataset names, the list may also include one or more
PARMLIB= statements. PARMLIB=xxxxxxxx may be specified anywhere in
the list of dataset names and it specifies the name of a member of
SYS1.PARMLIB that is to be used as a list of dataset names to be backed up.
This parameter allows members like LNKLSTxx, LPALSTxx and IEFAPFxx
to be used as dataset name lists. By using the PARMLIB= parameter, you
don't have to maintain an additional list of important datasets. As additional
datasets are added to these z/OS parmlib members, they are automatically
backed up. Any specified member must exist in the cataloged
SYS1.PARMLIB dataset.
Backed Up Only
Once
Each unique dataset is only backed up once, even if specified multiple times.
The list is specified on the SAEBKUP step SYSIN DD.
Example
//SAEBKUP.SYSIN DD *
SYS1.PARMLIB,SYS1.PARMLIB OLDCAT,
SYS1.PROCLIB,
SYS1.LINKLIB,PARMLIB=LNKLST00,

Backup Master Control
Two Control
Parameters
Two control parameters are provided to the Backup Master Update step:
GENERATIONS
GENERATIONS= specifies the number of generations of backups to
maintain for each unique dataset. When the number of backups for a dataset
exceeds the number of generations specified, the new backup is added and the
oldest backup dropped. Once all backups on a given tape have been dropped,
the tape is no longer needed and the tape dataset is UN-cataloged so the tape
may be reused.
MAXVOLS
MAXVOLS= controls the search for tapes that are no longer needed. It
specifies the maximum number of volumes being used. If set too low, a
message is issued and no tapes are released. In this case increase the
MAXVOLS number. The control statements are provided via the
SAEBKMST SYSIN DD.

IPLing Under VM
Supported MiniDisks
SAE is designed to examine and alter z/OS volumes and files. SAE cannot
access CMS mini-disks, but volumes formatted for virtual machine (VM)
may be erased. SAE supports z/OS mini-disks.
9-89
GA
Preparing for Use Under VM
Logging Onto the
Virtual Machine
The virtual machine (VM) to which you logon must have OPTION ECMODE
in its directory entry, or you must issue the #CP SET ECMODE ON
command. The command #CP Q SET displays the current ECMODE setting.
CPU Information
SAE only requires one CPU. To use the Fast DASD Erase feature, you must
detach all but one CPU from the virtual machine. This ensures that SAE uses
I/O ASSIST. The command #CP Q CPUS displays the CPUs and you can
use #CP DETACH CPU x to detach any unneeded CPUs.
3270-Type
Consoles
SAE expects to use a 3270-type device as a console. To check if your VM has
a 3215 or 3270 console, issue the command #CP Q V CON.
Check if your
VM is Defined as
3270
If your VM console is not defined as a 3270, you must:


Have a 3270 terminal dedicated to your virtual machine, or
Attach a 3270 terminal.
Check your directory entry to see if DEDICATE is present for a 3270
terminal. If not, attach a 3270 terminal.
Example
For example, if VM has a real 3270 at address 420, you could issue the
following commands from the VM operator's console (or from your virtual
machine if you are class A):
#CP DISABLE cccc
CP ATTACH cccc logonid cccc
Virtual Address
Not Important
The dedicated or attached terminal’s virtual address is not important (unless
you have defined specific console addresses during installation). SAE uses
the first 3270 that presents an attention interrupt.
9-90
TAPE IPL Under VM
Procedure
To IPL from TAPE using VM, perform the following procedure:
Step
1.
Action
If a tape drive is not dedicated to your VM, the VM operator must attach
a tape drive to your VM using the following command:
#CP ATTACH yyyy logonid xxxx
2.
After attaching the tape, mount the SAE tape on the tape drive.
3.
Clear the VM
4.
Initiate Program Load from the IPL device using the following
commands:
#CP SYS CLEAR
# CP IPL xxxx
5.
Press Enter on any terminal that your VM defines as a 3270 terminal.
Results: The SAE screen appears on the terminal. If you are using a
dedicated or attached 3270, you can optionally disconnect your
VM.
6.
When you complete your SAE session, logoff your VM to detach any
attached devices.
If you issued a #CP DISABLE command for a 3270 terminal, be sure to
re-enable it.

Console
Console Devices
Are Required
To communicate with the user, SAE requires a console device. The
identification and use of the console does not differ based on the type of IPL
you are performing (DASD, Tape, or CD-ROM/Network). You can only
establish a console on a local non-SNA display device.
First Attention
Becomes Console
Normally, the first display device that presents an attention interrupt (pressing
Enter) after completing the IPL is the device SAE uses as a console.
Selecting a
Console
After initiating an SAE IPL, press Enter on the console you want to use.
Step
Action
1.
Initiate an SAE IPL.
2.
Press Enter on the console you want to use.
Note:
If SAE does not respond immediately, that indicates that the
IPL process is not yet complete.
3.
If SAE does not respond, press Reset on the console device and then
press Enter again
Restrictive
Consoles
If you have defined Restrictive Consoles (see ‘SAE Customization’ on page
5-33) then SAE only responds to the selected console devices.
Specifying a
Console
You can use a special LOADPARM value to compel the use of a specific
console.
9-95
GA
Establishing a Console via LOADPARM
When to use
LOADPARM
If you cannot establish a console, or the console is being established at an
undesirable address, you can specify the use of a console at a specific address
using a special LOADPARM.
This forces the SAE console to a given address (by bypassing console address
definitions) and does not require an attention interrupt (pressing Enter).
Specified on the
Processor Service
Console
The LOADPARM parameter is specified on the processor service console
(usually next to the IPL device address). SAE obtains the LOADPARM from
the service processor at IPL.
To define an SAE console using the LOADPARM, the processor must allow
an eight-character parameter. VM users can use the LOADPARM parameter
of the IPL statement to specify the LOADPARM.
Defining a
Console
To define a console, specify a LOADPARM of ‘SAExxxx,’ where xxxx is the
four-digit device number of the console you want to use, and then IPL SAE
per normal procedures.
For example, to have SAE use the console at address 500, specify
‘SAE0500”. SAE extracts the LOADPARM and attempts to establish a
console at the given address. SAE initiates I/O to the specified console
immediately and does not require that the user press Enter. If SAE cannot
establish the console at the specified address, or if the address is invalid, SAE
waits for another console to identify itself as per normal SAE operation.

Print to Disk Dataset - Dataset Allocation
Creating a
Dataset Name
After identifying the volume, SAE allocates the print output dataset on that
volume.
SAE creates the dataset name using a defined prefix (see DLIB@OPT utility,
PRINT_DSN= keyword on page 5-52) and the fixed-print dataset suffix. SAE
then writes all print-directed output to the Print to Disk dataset.
The Print to Disk dataset is allocated with RECFM=FBM and LRECL=133.
The BLKSIZE is dependent on the device type and is for half-track blocking.
SAE Allocated
Print Datasets
Not Cataloged
SAE-allocated print datasets are not cataloged.
Erasing An
Active Print
Dataset
You may not erase a volume that contains the active print dataset.
NewEra suggests that you select a non-SMS managed work or temporary
volume for print output. After you finish with SAE you may copy or catalog
the print dataset using a z/OS system.

Printing to a Tape Dataset
Procedure
To direct SAE print output to a tape dataset:
Step
1.
Action
In the Printer Control Screen, supply a value of ‘TAPE’.
Results: SAE displays the “Initial Print to Tape” screen, which provides
instructions on how to identify the Tape device on which to
create the Tape Print dataset. The Print to Tape screen appears:
Note:
The data SAE writes to the Print to Tape dataset is buffered
and only writes when the buffer is full. After you finish
producing printer output you must close the Print to Tape
dataset so that SAE can flush any buffered data and write the
tape trailer labels.
To close the Print to Tape dataset, select Option 2 on the SAE
Settings Screen, or select Option X on the SAE Primary
Screen. If you do not close the Print to Tape dataset, you may
lose your data.

Results: After reading the tape, SAE displays a confirmation screen
before creating the tape dataset on the tape.
SAE creates a standard labeled tape dataset as the tape’s first
file. Any previous data on the tape is lost.
6.
Closing the
Session
To proceed, confirm the use of the tape:
 If the tape contains Standard Labels (SL), then the new SAE-created
tape will have the same Volser as when the tape was mounted
 If the tape contains no labels (NL), SAE creates a Standard Labeled
tape with a Volser of SAEPRT
 The tape dataset’s name is formatted as follows:
SAE.Dyymmdd.Thhmm. The dataset is created with RECFM=FBM
and LRECL=133
SAE writes to the tape as printed output is produced. Before closing SAE, it is
important that you use SAE to close the tape dataset.
When SAE closes the tape dataset, it writes an EOF Tape Mark along with
the Trailer labels. If the tape dataset is not closed, the printed output is
contained on the tape but the tape may not be accessible using z/OS utilities.
To close the tape dataset, exit SAE using Option X from the primary screen
or by switching the printed output direction to another device.

intuitive and usable with a minimum of instruction and/or training for those
that have mastered ISPF.
Action Services
Makeup
Action Services is a collection of services that are tied together to provide a
hieratical view of DASD Volumes and their contents. The user moves
through an intuitive interface, starting with DASD Volumes and moving on to
Datasets, then Dataset Members, etc.
Inspect
When using SAE to repair a system problem, you should also consider using
Inspect (see page Error! Bookmark not defined.).
Action Services provide access to all of your system’s volumes and datasets
and leaves the navigation to you. Alternatively, Inspect isolates the datasets
being used by a specific z/OS image. The choice is yours.

Creating a Volume List
Prerequisites
Before you can perform work using Volume Services, you must create a list
of volumes.
Selecting DASD
Devices
The Unit Selection Screen controls which DASD devices are selectable for
further processing in Volume Services. The Unit Selection Screen provides
three criteria for selection:



Unit Address (UNITS)
Volser (VOLSER)
the existence of a specific Dataset (DSN)
A DASD device must meet all of these criteria to be selected.

Field
Descriptions
The following table contains Selection screen field descriptions:
Field Name
Unit Address
Description
Leave all selection criteria blank (on the Unit Selection Screen)
to select all DASD Volumes.
You can specify up to nine unit addresses. If you do not specify
an address, all unit addresses meet the UNITS criteria. Unit
address specifications can be a specific:
 address
 address range for inclusion or
 address or address range for exclusion
Exclusion is indicated by prefixing the UNITS specification
with a ‘¬’ character. If an address is specified for both
inclusion and exclusion, SAE excludes the unit. If you only
specify exclusion criteria, all other addresses are included.
Specify UNITS as follows:
 A complete and explicit 3 or 4 digit unit address, for
example, 62C or 102C.
 A masked partial 3- or 4-digit unit address. The mask
character is an asterisk (*). An asterisk is specified for each
wildcard digit, for example, 8** results in a search of units
800-8FF.
 A unit address range. The range is specified with two
complete 3- or 4-digit unit addresses separated by a dash,
for example, 245-560 results in the search of units 245
through 560. Unit address range and masking are mutually
exclusive.

Field Descriptions (continued)
Field Name
Volser
Specifications
Description
You can make up to nine Volser specifications. If you do not
make any Volser specifications, then all volumes meet the
VOLSER criteria. Volser specifications can be a specific
volume or a volume mask. Exclusion is indicated by prefixing
the VOLSER specification with a ‘¬’ character. If a volume is
specified for both inclusion and exclusion, SAE excludes the
volume. If you only specify exclusion criteria, all other
volumes are included.
Specify a VOLSER as follows:
 A complete 6-character Volser. For example, SYSRES.
 A partial masked 6-character Volser. The mask character is
an asterisk (*). An asterisk is specified for each wildcard
character, For example, SYS*** matches all volumes with
Volsers starting with SYS. SYS** matches all volumes
with Volsers starting with SYS and ending with a blank.
Unit Search
Parallel Access
Volume (PAV)
Alias Volumes
You may select whether or not to include PAV Alias volumes
in the volume list. If ‘Y’ is specified, then no PAV volumes are
excluded from the volume list. If ‘N’ is specified, then PAV
volumes which are aliases are excluded and will not meet the
criteria for inclusion.
Dataset Name
If you specify a fully qualified dataset name (without quotes),
volumes meet this criteria only if the dataset exists on the
volume.
After defining the criteria for Unit Selection, press Enter to begin the Unit
Search. SAE initiates I/O to each possible device on the system (within the
unit address criteria if specified) to determine if the device is a DASD
Volume. If the device is a DASD Volume, SAE performs further I/O to
determine additional information about the volume. Depending on the number
of devices defined (IOCP) to the system, and the number of devices that
actually exist (DASD or otherwise) the Unit Search process may take several
minutes.
As the unit search progresses, a status message displays at the top of the Unit
Selection screen. The message updates periodically as the search continues
and indicates the number of matches found.

Volume Selection Re-Use Screen
When to Use It
After using the Unit Selection Screen to create a Volume Selection List, SAE
maintains that list even after exiting from Action Services. The next time you
use the Unit Selection Screen, if you specify the same unit selection criteria as
were used to create the previous Volume Selection List, SAE displays the
Volume Selection Re-Use Screen.

Volume Selection
Re-Use Screen
VOLUME SELECTION RE-USE ----------------------------------------------THE UNIT SELECTION CRITERIA ENTERED IS THE SAME AS WAS USED TO CREATE THE
PREVIOUS VOLUME SELECTION LIST. YOU MAY AVOID THE UNIT SEARCH TIME BY
RE-USING THE PREVIOUS SELECTION LIST.
IF YOU ELECT NOT TO DISPLAY THIS SCEEN AGAIN, THE SETTINGS BELOW WILL BE
USED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THIS SAE SESSION OR YOU MAY CHANGE THEM USING 0.3
RE-USE PREVIOUS VOLUME SELECTION LIST ==> Y
DISPLAY THIS SCREEN AGAIN
==> Y
NOTE: VOLUME COPY OR RESTORE OPERATIONS MAY ALTER VOLSERS. THESE CHANGES
WILL NOT BE REFLECTED IF THE VOLUME SELECTION LIST IS RE-USED.
What It Does
The Volume Selection Re-Use Screen specifies whether to re-use the
previously created Volume Selection List, or if Unit Selection should create a
new list for performing I/O to the specified range of addresses.
Advantages
Re-using a previously created Volume Selection List has the advantage of
avoiding the end user wait time while SAE performs I/O to each possible
address in the specified range (to build a new Volume Selection List). For
large installations, the wait time while accessing all devices can be quite long.
Continued on next page
15-135
GA
Volume Selection Re-Use Screen, Continued
Disadvantages
The only disadvantage to re-using the Volume Selection List is that you
cannot see any changes to volumes that may have occurred since the previous
Volume Selection List was created. The previous Volume Selection List
might:



Contain incorrect Volsers if volumes have been renamed by other systems since
the previous list was built.
Not include volumes that were reserved by other systems while the previous list
was being created.
Not include the correct Volser for volumes copied or restored using SAE Restore
Services.
Re-using the
Previous Volume
Selection Screen
In most cases, re-using the previous Volume Selection List provides quick
access without much concern.
To Not Show the
Volume Re-Use
Screen
If you do not want to show the Volume Selection Re-Use Screen again,
specify ‘N’ at the ‘DISPLAY THIS SCREEN AGAIN’ prompt.
To re-use the previously created Volume Selection List, specify ‘Y’ at the
‘RE-USE PREVIOUS VOLUME SELECTION LIST’ prompt. To have SAE
inspect each unit address and create a new Volume Selection List, specify
‘N’.
When you specify ‘N’, each time you use Unit Selection, SAE does not
display the screen but continues processing based on the value last specified
for the RE-USE prompt. If at some time during the SAE session you want to
change your Re-use options (even if you have not requested a display), you
can use SAE Option 0.3.

Occasionally, a volume’s VOL1 label record becomes damaged or the volume is
accidentally minimally initialized. If either of these situations occurs, a valid
VTOCmay still exist on the volume that describes all of the volume’s datasets, but
that VTOC is not accessible.
If you specify ‘Y’ for VTOC search, then SAE performs a search of the specified
cylinder range looking for possible VTOCs. The VTOC Selection Screen displays

Selecting a
Possible VTOC
From this selection list you may select a possible VTOC. After you select a
VTOC, if it is valid, a Dataset List and/or a Volume Map displays showing the
datasets and/or volume layout based on the selected VTOC. Use these displays to
determine if the selected VTOC is the VTOC you wish to reinstate.
Accidental
Initializations
If the volume has been accidentally initialized, use the volume map display to
determine what (if any) data has been destroyed.
For example, a volume that has its VTOC in the middle of the pack is accidentally
initialized to create a VTOC on cylinder 0. The volume labels address the VTOC
in cylinder 0, but the original VTOC remains in the middle of the volume. Using
VTOC search, SAE locates and selects the VTOC in a middle of the volume. The
volume map based on the original VTOC display the dataset(s) (if any) that reside
at the location of the new VTOC (Cyl 0). This indicates which dataset(s) have been
damaged by the creation of the new VTOC.
Finishing
VTOC Selection
Screen
After you finish viewing the dataset list and/or volume map, use PF3 to close.
After using PF3 from the Volume Map Screen, the following screen displays to
allow final VTOC selection:
VTOC ADDRESS: 00C8 0001
PROCESS VOLUME TO USE THIS VTOC: Y

Dataset Rename - R
Procedure
To rename a dataset:
Step
Rename
Function
Description
Action
1.
Use the NEW LINE key to move the cursor in front of the dataset name.
2.
Type “R”.
3.
Type the new name over the displayed name.
The Rename function is a VTOC dataset rename only, it does not alter any
catalog entries.
When used alone, it is useful in swapping two datasets that exist on the same
volume (for example. SYS1.NUCLEUS and SYS1.OLD.NUCLEUS).
When used along with the Altercat function, you can rename a dataset and
alter an existing catalog entry to point to the volume now containing the
renamed dataset. You can only rename one dataset at a time.
Indexed VTOC
Record Split
Under certain conditions, when renaming a dataset, an Indexed VTOC record
split may be required. In these infrequent cases, SAE renames the dataset in
the OS VTOC and disables the index portion of the Indexed VTOC.
z/OS recognizes the new dataset name and acknowledges the index disable by
issuing message 'IEC606I VTOC INDEX DISABLED ON ddd,ser,cde'. The
next allocate access to the volume by DASDM results in the conversion to an
OS VTOC and message 'IEC604I VTOC CONVERT ROUTINE ENTERED
ON ddd,ser,cde' being issued. The Indexed VTOC can be rebuilt using normal
ICKDSF procedures.

Command
SPACE UNIT
Description
CYLS
Specify the number of cylinders
TRKS
Specify the number of tracks
BLKS
Specify the number of blocks, calculates number of
TRKS
BKRD
Specify blocks round, calculates number of CYLS
PRIMARY QTY
Specify the number of space units to use for the primary

CONTIG
Specify if the primary quantity of space must be contiguous or
may be obtained over several extents.
 If you specify 'NO', up to five extents may be used to
obtain the primary space unit quantity.
 If you specify 'YES', only one extent is used while trying
to obtain the primary space unit quantity.
In either case, the dataset is allocated even if the full primary
space could not be obtained. The CONTIG parameter has no
effect other than described above and does not apply to
secondary extents. When allocating datasets that must be in a
single extent (for example, SYS1.NUCLEUS), 'YES' should
be coded along with a secondary space quantity of zero.
SECONDARY
QTY
Specify the number of space units used for each secondary
extent
DIRECTORY
BLKS
Specify the number of directory blocks to create and
determine the dataset organization.
Specify zero directory blocks to allocate a sequential dataset.
Specify a non-zero number of directory blocks to allocate a
partitioned dataset. The number of directory blocks may be
reduced if the first extent is of insufficient size to
accommodate the amount specified

Copying Between Datasets
Source and
Target Datasets
For Dataset Copy, the source ('from' dataset) and target ('to' dataset) datasets
may be on the same or different volumes.
SAME vs.
DIFFERENT
Volumes
To differentiate between “same” and “different” volumes, this topic specifies
“SAME VOLUME” or “DIFFERENT VOLUME” in the paragraph title.
Location
Determines How
Command is
Invoked
The location of the source and target datasets determines how SAE invokes
the Dataset Copy function.
If both datasets reside on the same volume, then you must invoke the Dataset
Copy function from the Dataset Selection Screen, active for that volume.
If the datasets reside on different volumes, then you must invoke the Dataset
Copy function from the Volume Selection Screen. In this case, the volume list
active on the Volume Selection Screen must contain both volumes.
Definition
The Dataset Copy function provides services to copy from one dataset to
another. Datasets being copied must be of the same organization (partitioned
or sequential) and the same record format (fixed, variable, or undefined).
Copying
Partitioned
Datasets
For partitioned datasets, all or selected members may be copied. SAE
supports fixed, variable, or undefined record formats. Partitioned dataset
members are always added to the end of the target dataset, acquiring
additional extents as necessary
Copying
Sequential
Datasets
For sequential datasets, SAE supports fixed or variable record formats.
Invoking the
Dataset Copy
Function
To identify the source and target datasets, the Dataset Copy function presents
selection lists.
To invoke the Dataset Copy function, enter the COPY command on the
command line of either the Volume Selection Screen or the Dataset Selection
Screen.

Screen
Information
The Dataset Copy Screen provides control and confirmation of the Dataset
Copy function. For Sequential Datasets, press Enter to begin the copy
process.
Copying to a
Partitioned
Dataset
When you copy to a partitioned dataset, each new member (even if replaced)
is written to the end of the dataset and the directory is updated.
Avoiding Out-ofSpace Conditions
If you are replacing all the members in the target dataset and you want to
avoid out-of-space conditions, you should consider first using the Dataset
Information function's EMPTY command on the target dataset. The EMPTY
command allows the copy to take place as if the target dataset was newly
allocated. See page 16-165 for more information.
Copied Members
Replace LikeNamed Members
Members copied from the source dataset will, by default, replace any like
named members in the target dataset.
If you do not want this to occur, change the 'REPLACE LIKE-NAMED
MEMBERS' prompt to 'NO'. All or selected member of the partitioned
datasets can be copied.

Description
*COPIED
The member was copied successfully.
*REPL
The member was copied successfully and replaced a likenamed member that already existed in the target dataset.
*NO-REPL
The member was not copied. A like-named member existed in

*ALIAS
The member was not copied. The member is an alias and the
main member was not selected.
To copy this member, select the main member for ‘copy’ and
its alias members will be automatically be copied.
RD ERROR
The member was not copied. An error occurred while trying
to read the member from the source dataset.
DIR FULL
The member was not copied and other copy requests were not
processed. The directory of the target dataset is full.

Dataset Copy Restrictions
Dataset Copy
Restrictions
The Dataset Copy operation has the following restrictions:


Advance
Processing for
Alias Members
Both the source and target datasets for the copy operations must be of the same
organization and record format. The record format restriction applies to the base
record format (fixed, variable or undefined) and not variations of the same base
record format. For example, datasets of F, FB, FBA or FBM could be copied to
one another.
Datasets with keys, record format variable spanned, or record format variable
block spanned, are not supported.
The Dataset Copy function provides some advanced processing for alias
members.
Whenever a member (non-alias) is selected for copy (explicit selection or
copy all), SAE makes a search for any alias entries. The alias entries are
automatically copied.
Cannot Copy
Alias Member by
Itself
You cannot select an alias member for copy by itself. It can only be copied as
an automatic function of copying the main member.
Additional
Restrictions
Depending on the record format, additional restrictions apply.


Where
Restrictions Are
Enforced
For fixed and variable record format datasets, both the source and target datasets
must have the same logical record length. Block sizes may differ.
For undefined record format datasets, the maximum block size of the source
dataset cannot exceed the maximum block size of the target dataset.
These restrictions are enforced at time of Dataset Copy, and are not
considered during selection.
16-179
GA
Source and Target Datasets
Overlay Load
Modules
Unlike ISPF copy, the SAE Dataset Copy function supports overlay load
modules and they may be copied.
Dataset
Compression
The Dataset Copy function does not support in place compression of
partitioned datasets (for example, for Copy, the source and target dataset
cannot be the same). If you must compress a dataset, you can use one of
several techniques to achieve the same result.
Step
Action
1.
Use the Dataset Information function to view the dataset that is to be
compressed (old dataset).
2.
Use the Dataset Allocate function to allocate a new dataset with the
same attributes and size as the old dataset, if possible, on the same
volume.
3.
Use the Dataset Copy function to copy from the old dataset to the new
dataset. After the copy, the new dataset is a compressed version of the
old dataset.
Then to finish the task, follow one of these:
4.
If both old and new datasets are on the same volume, rename the old
dataset and then rename the new dataset to the old dataset's original
name. After z/OS operation is restored, delete the old dataset.
5.
If the old and new datasets are on different volumes, rename the old
dataset, and then rename the new dataset to the old dataset's original
name. Then update the catalog entry for the original dataset to show the
location of the renamed new dataset. After z/OS operation is restored,
delete the old dataset.
6.
Use the Dataset Information function's EMPTY command to empty the
old dataset (effectively delete all and compress), and then copy from the
new dataset back to the old dataset. Delete the new dataset after z/OS
operation is restored. This method has the disadvantage that the original
dataset is altered prior to the restoration of the z/OS system.

17-187
GA
Member Create (Edit Only)
Procedure
To create a new member:
Step
Action
1.
Type “S” on the Command Line, followed by the new member name.
Results: The Edit Screen displays, showing the empty member.
2.
You can now edit and save the member.
The member is actually created at edit save time; therefore, if it is not
saved, the member will not exist.
17-188
Member Rename (Edit or Zap Only)
Renaming a
Member
To rename a member do one of the following:


Type RENAME on the Command Line, followed by the existing name and the
new name.
Use the NEW LINE key to move the cursor in front of the member and type
“R”. Then TAB over and specify the new name. You can only rename one
member at a time this way.
The member is renamed and the member selection list re-positioned to the
newly renamed member.

Selecting a CSECT
Two Methods to
Select
You can select a Control Section (CSECT) for Zap/Verify in one of two
ways:
 Type “S” on the Command Line, followed by the CSECT name.
 Move the cursor in front of the CSECT name and type “S”.
Result: After you have selected a CSECT, the Zap or Verify Screen displays.
After Selection
After selecting a CSECT, SAE checks to determine if the CSECT contains all
printable characters. If so, the following screen displays.
DO YOU WISH TO PROCESS THIS CSECT AS TEXT DATA ==>
(Y/N)
This screen gives you to option of using Edit/Browse for the CSECT instead
of Zap/Verify. Certain CSECTs (like MSTJCL00) are much easier to work
with in an Edit/Browse format than hexadecimal.
CSECT Edit provides for text type-over editing. Other commands like line
repeat, delete, or insert are not permitted.
To process the CSECT with Edit/Browse reply ‘Y’.



A sequential dataset in Dataset Services or
A partitioned dataset member in Member Services.

Datasets with a record format of Undefined (RECFM=U) that are selected using
‘S’, ‘E’ or ‘B’ on the Dataset Selection Screen are processed with Zap/Verify
instead of Edit/Browse.
Datasets that are selected using ‘Z’ on the Dataset Selection Screen are
processed with Zap/Verify, independent of the record format of the dataset.

Member Undelete (Edit Only)
Creating and
Recovering
Orphaned
Members
When a member is updated in a PDS, the member is written to the end of the
dataset and then updates the directory to point to the new member. The old
version of the member still resides in the dataset, but without a pointer in the
directory, it is left orphaned.
When a member is deleted, the pointer in the directory is removed; therefore,
like the old version of a member, it also is left orphaned.
In both cases, the old versions and deleted members continue to exist in the
dataset until it is compressed.
SAE provides a facility to access these orphaned members. For each orphaned
member, there is no way of knowing the member name under which it once
existed. The data in each orphaned member is your only guide. The Undelete
facility accesses the orphaned members in order, from the end of the dataset
to the beginning. You will therefore see the most recently orphaned member
first.
Procedure
To Undelete members:
Step
Accessing
Deleted Member
and Previous
Versions
Action
1.
Open the Edit Screen.
2.
Enter UNDELETE on the Command Line.
Result: The UNDELETE command copies the most recently updated
orphaned member into the current member.
3.
If this happens to be the orphaned member for which you were looking
to re-establish, edit it further (if necessary), then Save.
4.
If it is not the correct member, enter UNDELETE again (or use PF9).
Results: SAE copies the next previous orphaned member into the
current member, replacing the one that was displayed.
5.
Continue until you locate the member for which you were looking.
You can only access deleted members and previous versions of a member
using the Edit Screen's UNDELETE command.
To use the UNDELETE command:

Select a new member (see 'Creating a new member'). Once the Edit Screen
displays for the new member, you can use the UNDELETE command. The
UNDELETE command is described in the Edit Screen Section.

Zap Services is an integral component of Action Services. Zap Services
provide functions that are directed against the contents of datasets (sequential)
or dataset members where the data contains non-displayable hexadecimal
data.
You can launch Zap Services by selecting:


Selecting
Datasets
A sequential dataset in Dataset Services, or
A partitioned dataset member in Member Services.
Datasets with a record format of Undefined (RECFM=U) that are selected
using ‘S’, ‘E’ or ‘B’ on the Dataset Selection Screen are processed with
Zap/Verify instead of Edit/Browse.
Datasets selected using ‘Z’ on the Dataset Selection Screen are processed
with Zap/Verify independent of the record format of the dataset.

circumvent problems that are caused by uncataloged datasets.



You can determine a given dataset’s location using the dataset search facility
(see page 15-132).
In most cases, the JCL involved can then be edited to specify the UNIT and
VOL=SER parameters.
If the uncataloged dataset is referenced by the Master JCL, the MSTJCL00
member of SYS1.LINKLIB can be zapped to add the UNIT and VOL=SER
parameters.

Fast DASD Erase Overview
Prerequisites
To use Fast DASD Erase:


The Fast DASD Erase feature must be enabled (DLIB@OPT).
The current userid must have access authority number 2.
What Fast DASD
Erase Does
You can use the Fast DASD Erase function to completely erase 3380, 3390,
or 9345 volumes (For EAVs, SAE R16 only supports the erasing of the Track
Managed Space.). You can also optionally perform a quick initialize (QUICK
INIT).
Useful After
Disaster
Recovery
Fast DASD Erase is useful at the completion of Disaster Recovery testing,
when you do not want to leave ANY data behind at a hot site. It is also good
to use before releasing Storage hardware to a third party.
QUICK INIT
QUICK INIT is useful when data security is considered to have lesser
importance.
Advantages
Although the time taken by FAST ERASE or QUICK INIT to function
against a single volume is considered fast, their real advantage is in
performing many erases or initializations concurrently.
Fast DASD Erase is designed to perform highly optimized I/O, which results
in a relatively small utilization of available paths per device. Devices on
different paths can be erased with little or no effect on the performance. For
devices on same paths, each additional concurrent erase will result in a
minimal increase in erase time. Even at total path utilization, the total saving
in erase or initialization time is substantial.
Not
Recommended
Under VM
Generally, use of Fast DASD Erase is not recommended under VM. VM may
report missing interrupts and affect SAE and other VM guests. Native use of
SAE is preferable over VM use. However, if VM use is the only option, the
virtual machine must have only one attached CPU. If more than one CPU is
present, VM I/O ASSIST will be disabled and cause unpredictable results.
Erase Failures
To prevent failures, all volumes being erased must be off-line to all other
systems. If another system accesses a volume that is being erased, the erase
will fail.
Erase failures can also occur for volumes attached via a 3990 control unit if
another system, that is also connected to the same control unit, is IPLed
(system reset notification) during the erase.

Parallel Access
Volume (PAV)
Alias Volumes
One selection criteria available for Unit Selection (see page 15-132) that is of
particular interest when erasing volumes is PAV Alias selection. When erasing a
primary PAV volume, you may wish to avoid directly erasing its aliases volumes.
You may exclude PAV Alias volumes from the volume selection list by using this
selection criteria.

EXTENDED ADDRESS VOLUMES (EAVs) ARE PRESENT IN THE VOLUME SELECTION LIST
EAVs ARE NOT FULLY SUPPORTED FOR ERASE IN THIS RELEASE
HOWEVER, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO ERASE THE TRACK MANAGED SPACE ON THESE VOLUMES.
IF YOU REPLY Y, SAE WILL ERASE THE FIRST 65,520 CYLs (TRACK MANAGED SPACE) ON
THESE VOLUMES AND CREATE A STANDARD VTOC ON EACH EAV VOLUME. DATA IN THE
CYLINDER MANAGED SPACE WILL NOT BE ERASED BUT WILL NOT BE READILY ACCESSIBLE.
IF YOU REPLY N, SAE WILL NOT ALLOW EAVs TO BE SELECTED FOR ERASE AND ALL DATA
ON THOSE VOLUMES WILL REMAIN UNTOUCHED.
ERASE TRACK MANAGED SPACE ON EAVs ==>
Erasing Track
Managed Space
(Y/N)
SAE R16 does not fully support the erasing of EAVs. Track Managed Space may be
erased but Cylinder Managed Space may not.
You may choose to not erase the EAV volumes at all (select ‘N’) in which case any
EAVs in the list will not be selectable for erase.
Or you may choose to erase the Track Managed Space (cylinders 65520 and below)
on the volumes (select ‘Y’). If you elect to erase the Track Managed Space, EAV
volumes will be selectable for erase and if selected, SAE will erase the Track
Managed Space cylinders and create a standard VTOC on the volume. The VTOC
will describes both the Track Managed and Cylinder Managed Space and any VTOC
information regarding the contents of the Cylinder Managed Space will have been
erased, but the actual contents of the Cylinder Managed Space will have not been
changed.
If EAVs are erased, a message will appear in the report indicating that Cylinder
Managed Space was not erased.
“WARNING - EAV CYLINDER MANAGED SPACE NOT ERASED'”
Additionally, the report will show EAV volumes as having only 65,534 cylinders.

Description
If you specify ‘Y’, SAE erases the entire DASD unit.
Full Volume Erase writes binary zeros (or if specified some
other byte value) on all tracks except cylinder 0, track 0. On
track 0, the volume label record is changed to Volser ERASED
and the remainder of the track is erased. If the volume
contained a valid VTOC prior to erase, then a new one track
VTOC is created on track 1.
After the erase, the volume will be clipped to ERASED.
Full Volume
Erase (with N)
If you specify ‘N’, then all volumes are processed with Quick
Initialization only.
You can request that QUICK INIT creates a new one track
VTOC on the volume, but does not erase the remaining tracks.
The QUICK INIT process is very fast and an alternative to a
total erasure when data security is a secondary consideration.
Using QUICK INIT, data is not erased; however, the new
VTOC limits access.
After creating the one track VTOC, the Quick Initialization
function will clip the volume to VTINIT and the STATUS field
will show *INIT.

Parameter
Disable 3990
Cache
Description
If you specify ‘Y’, Fast DASD Erase deactivates the Cache for
each DASD volume on the volume selection list that is
attached to a 3990 controller with cache support.
The operation is deemed to be successful when the device
accepts the command. De-staging of data may continue for
some time after the operation has indicated success. Disabling
3990 Cache improves erase performance for real 3990-3 and
3990-6 controllers. However, most emulated 3990 controllers
(for example, SCSI RAID) ignore cache deactivation requests.
If 3390 Cache is disabled, it must be manually enabled after the
erase using the CACHE ON command.
Erase Alternate
Tracks
If you specify ‘Y’, Fast DASD Erase operations attempt to
erase alternate and defective tracks. As alternate tracks are
assigned and unassigned, data may remain on alternate and
defective tracks. An attempt to erase each alternate track (or if
an alternate track is assigned, the defective track that it
replaced) is made when the erase operation is started for a
volume.
In the case of defective tracks, the erase may be unsuccessful,
depending on the seriousness of the defect. Specifying ‘N’ is
recommended.
Maximum Autorestarts per unit
Specify the maximum number of times that an automatic
restart should be attempted on a volume. An automatic restart
is the restarting of an erase that has failed. You can set a value
between 0 and 255.
Restarts for same
cylinder
Specify the number of times that a restart operation should try
to erase a failing cylinder before skipping it. You can select a
value between 0 and 255.
 To never skip over a failing cylinder, set Restarts for
same cylinder to the same value as Maximum Autorestarts per unit.
 To always skip over a failing cylinder without a retry, set
Restarts for same cylinder to zero.

Parameter
Erase Method
Description
Specify the erase mode for Fast DASD Erase to use. Two
choices are available: Burst or Sustained.
 Burst – This mode is recommended for new technology
RAID devices that emulate 3380 or 3390 devices.
 Sustained – This mode is recommended for legacy
equipment. Use this method if the devices you are erasing
are real 3380s or 3390s behind real 3990 controls.
Prior to SAE Release 11, only the Sustained mode was
available. The Burst mode was introduced with SAE Release
11 and is the default.
Erasure Pattern
Additional
Settings
Specify the hexadecimal value to be written on each byte of the
DASD track.
 00 - An erase of zero has special significance and provides
the greatest performance. This is the default.
 xx - A value other than 00 (hexadecimal values 01-FF)
require the movement of 47K of data across the channel for
each track on each DASD unit being erased and as a result
will effect erase performance. A non-zero erasure pattern is
only supported for ECKD 3390 devices. Other devices
such as 3380s or 9345s will be erased with a zero erasure
pattern, independent of the value specified. Some
suggested bit patterns are: x’55’ = 01010101, x’AA’ =
10101010 and x’FF’ = 11111111.
The Fast DASD Erase Parameter Setting Screen also contains additional
parameters for Customer Support Staff to use when diagnosing problem
situations. These parameters are normally protected from change. Do not alter
them without first consulting NewEra Customer Support Staff.

Starting an Erase
Recommendation
Fast DASD Erase can be directed at some or all of the volumes listed on the
Erase Selection Screen. NewEra recommends that you use Volser and/or unit
masking or range on the Unit Selection Screen to limit the volumes displayed,
and to be as close as possible to the volumes that are to be erased.
Select Volumes
Twice
To start erasing a volume, the volume must be selected twice.
First Selection
The first time you select the volume, it enters a ‘pending erase’ status.
Double selection is a safeguard against erasing the wrong volumes. When you
use the selection commands the first time, you can see what will be erased
when you repeat the commands.
For a volume that is in ‘pending erase’ status, the screen is updated with
'*CNFRM' (as shown below) to indicate that confirmation is required prior to
the beginning of the actual erase.
Updated Screen

The second time you select the volume, the actual erase starts.
Erasing Methods
Any number of volumes may be selected for erase by using one of three
methods:
To select
Then…
An individual
volume for erase
Place an “E” in front of the volume.
An entire string for
erase
Place an “F” in front of the first volume on the string
(address must be xxx0). All units xxx0 through xxxF are
selected. Use of the SORTUNIT command may be of
assistance for this type of selection.
All the volumes in
the volume
selection list
Enter the ERASEALL command on the command line. The
ERASEALL command does not start the devices in
numerical order so that the Erase starts are spread across all
controllers.

GA
Starting an Erase, Continued
UN-selecting a
Volume
To UN-Select Volumes for erase (removed from awaiting confirmation
status) place a “U” in front of the volume.
Erasing Volumes
When a large number, but not all, of the volumes listed are to be erased, the
ERASEALL command can still be of use.
By issuing the ERASEALL command, all volumes are placed in erase
confirmation status. You can then use the UN-select line command (U) to
UN-select the volumes that should not be erased. By issuing the ERASEALL
command again, all volumes awaiting confirmation begin erasure, and the
previously UN-selected volumes enter confirmation status.
Delays in
Updating
During the period when many erase operations are starting, the Erase
Selection Screen may not update for several minutes. During this period, a
message displays for each volume as its erase operation initializes.

Fast DASD Erase Monitoring
Monitoring the
Erase Status
After initiating the Fast DASD Erase operation, you can monitor the Erase
status by viewing several fields on the screen. The number of cylinders
displayed for the volume decrements to indicate the number of cylinders yet
to be erased.
Based on the cylinders erased up to that point, SAE calculates and displays
the number of cylinders erased per minute. This is useful in comparing the
erase performance of the volumes being erased.
Differences in device type, controller types, the number of paths to each
controller, the number of devices behind each controller, and hardware
servicing of requests all affect the erase performance of each device. The
number of minutes the Fast DASD Erase operation has been running also
displays.

Time Remaining
VOLSER STATUS UNIT DEVT CYLS INFO CHPID

In addition to the individual cylinder per minute displays, an estimate of the
number of minutes required to complete the erase is displays in the message
area.
This rough estimate is based on the device with the largest number of
cylinders still to be erased and its most recent cylinder per minute rate. As
erases end for some devices, others receive more service, so, in general, the
erase operation should complete sooner than the estimate displayed.
Refreshed
Information
The monitoring information is re-calculated and the screen updated once a
minute (auto screen re-fresh), or when the Enter key is used.
After Completion
Once the Fast DASD Erase operation completes, the Volser field shows the
new Volser of the erased unit as ERASED and the final erase rate (cylinders
per minute). If you used QUICK INIT, all initialized volumes have Volsers of
VTINIT.

The amount of time required to complete the erase depends on the device
type, configuration, and the number of erase operations active against devices
on the same paths.
20-236
DRPCLIP Command
Overview
You can use the DRPCLIP command to change all ERASED volumes to
unique volume serial numbers.
When issued on the Command Line of the Erase Selection Screen, all
volumes with Volsers of ERASED or VTINIT are renamed to a Volser that is
made up of the unit address.
Identifying
Duplicate Volsers
After the Fast DASD Erase operation has completed, all erased volumes have
Volsers of ERASED. If you used QUICK INIT, all initialized volumes have
Volsers of VTINIT. This makes it easy to confirm which volumes have been
erased or initialized. The duplicate Volsers are inconvenient for other
operations like IPLing z/OS.
Three Character
Operand
You can issue the command with or without a three-character operand.
If you specify an operand, SAE uses the value as the first three characters of
the new Volsers. The last three characters are the unit address of the device.
For example, if the volume serial at unit address 385 was ERASED, the
command 'DRPCLIP CLR' would result in the volume being clipped to
CLR385.
If you issue the command without an operand, the first three characters are
also the unit address. For example, if the volume serial at unit address 385
was ERASED, the command 'DRPCLIP ' would result in the volume being
clipped to 385385.
Four Digit Unit
Addresses
Supported
DRPCLIP also supports devices with four digit unit addresses where the first
digit is non-zero.
For example:


Does not Affect
Active Volumes
‘DRPCLIP CLR’ will re-name unit 385 to CLR385 but unit 1385 to Volser
CL1385.
‘DRPCLIP’ without an operand will re-name unit 385 to 385385 but unit 1385 to
001385.
You can issue the DRPCLIP command from the Erase Selection Screen at
any time but it does not affect volumes being actively erased.

Erase Failure
I/O Errors May
Cause Failure
If an I/O error occurs during an erase operation, the device information is
updated with 'FAILED' and may include the Device and Subchannel status
(ST=) and sense bytes (SENSE=).
If SAE has a valid printer address, diagnostic reports are automatically
produced (if enabled) that document the error’s cause. Retain these reports
for analysis.

Erase Failure (continued)
Restarting Failed
Erase Operations
Failed erase operations are automatically restarted. If the maximum number
of restarts for a particular volume is reached but additional restarts are
desired, you can use the RESTART command to reset the restart count for
volumes in ‘FAILED’ status and to resume restart operations.
20-242
No Response Conditions
No Response
Situations
If a volume that is being erased does not post an interrupt for an extended
period of time, the '*ERASE' indicator change to '*NORSP' (no response).
If a printer address was supplied to SAE, a diagnostic report is automatically
produced (if enabled), that documents the last interrupt received.
Retain these reports for analysis.
A 'no response' condition may clear, but if it is persistent, it may be a sign that
the erase has failed without host notification. After a second time period has
elapsed, the I/O to the device is cleared and a restart is attempted.

Unit Address
You can make up to nine unit-address specifications. If no unit address
specifications are made, all unit addresses meet the UNITS criteria.
Unit Address
Specifications
Unit address specifications can be either:


A specific address or address range for inclusion
A specific address or address range for exclusion
To indicate exclusion, prefix the UNITS specification with a ‘¬’ character.


Specifying
UNITS
If an address is specified for both inclusion and exclusion, the unit is excluded.
If the address is only specified for exclusion, all other addresses are included.
You can specify UNITS as follows:



A complete and explicit 3- or 4-digit unit address, for example, 62C or 102C.
A masked partial 3- or 4-digit unit address. The mask character is an asterisk (*).
An asterisk is specified for each wildcard digit (for example, 8** results in a
search of units 800-8FF).
A unit address range. The range is specified with two complete 3- or 4- digit unit
addresses separated by a dash (for example, 245-560 results in the search of units
245 through 560).
Unit address range and masking are mutually exclusive.

Chapter 21: Restore Services
Overview
SAE’s Restore Services are a comprehensive collection of tools that allow a
stand alone restore of a dataset or an entire volume.
This type of restore is a departure from other stand alone restore products
which provide for the stand alone restore of a full volume (or selected
absolute tracks) only. In many recovery situations, restoring a complete
DASD volume is not required and may also regress other changes that would
further complicate the recovery process.
SAE’s ability to restore a single dataset, combined with its ability to allocate
and copy datasets, provides a much more flexible restore capability.
Also, SAE’s support of restore from DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) or FDR volume
dumps means that you can use SAE’s restore capabilities without having to
change or add to your existing backup processes.
Dataset Restore
From Three
Backup Sources
Restore Services provide for a stand alone dataset restore from three backup
sources:
Full Volume
Restore From
Two Backup
Sources
Restore Services provide for a stand alone full volume restore from two
backup sources:
FDR and
DFSMSdss
SAE does not use FDR or DFSMSdss in processing dumps created by those
products. The file format of FDR and DFSMSdss dumps vary and may
change from release to release. SAE may not support all current FDR or
DFSMSdss formats, nor future formats of FDR or DFSMSdss releases.
Tape Scan and
Full Volume
Disk-to-Disk
Compare and
Copy Utilities
In addition to restore options, Restore Services provides a tape scan utility
and full volume disk-to-disk compare and copy utility.


FDR Full volume or DSF Dataset dumps on tape or DASD.
DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) Full volume dumps on tape or DASD.
FDR Full volume dumps on tape or DASD.
You can use the tape scan utility to identify tape contents and volume sequence
numbers.
You can use the full volume compare utility to determine if differences exist
between two volumes. You can also use the full volume copy utility to create
mirror images of a DASD volume.

IEB Restore Overview
Restore
Functions
You can use the IEB Restore function to:


Restore a partitioned dataset (or selected members of a partitioned dataset) from
a tape containing an IEBCOPY unloaded partitioned dataset or
Restore a sequential dataset from an IEBGENER unloaded sequential dataset.
Restoring to a
Different Device
Type
The restore may be made to an unlike device type (for example, 3380 backup
restored to 3390). The target dataset for the restore must already exist. You
can use SAE’s dataset allocation function to allocate the target dataset if it
does not already exist (see page 15-132 for more information).
Target Dataset
Too Small
If the target dataset is smaller than the dataset being restored, SAE will
allocate additional extents to accommodate the restore.

Besides taking the backups of selected datasets, the SAE Backup Control
System maintains a Backup Master File that describes:





The tape Volser and
The file sequence number of the backup dataset.
the dataset that was backed up,
the tape Volser on which the backup resides and
the file sequence number of the backup dataset on that tape.
The Backup Master file is maintained on DASD and two copies can be
maintained on tape. If you maintain tape copies of the Backup Master file, the
copies are always written to the same two tape Volsers that you define during
SAE during installation.
If a restore is required and the DASD copy of the Backup Master File is
unavailable, SAE can request the mount of one of the Backup Master file
tapes. From the Backup Master file tape, the correct location (Volser and file
sequence number) of the required backup can be determined.

IEB Restore Overview, Continued
Three Methods
to Determine the
Correct Backup
Volser
By using the Backup Control System, you can determine the correct backup
Volser and file sequence number by one of three methods:
Method 1:
If You Know the
Name
If you know the name of the Backup Master file on DASD, you can use SAE
dataset search to locate it (see page 15-132 for more information). After you
locate the Backup Master file you can browse it. By viewing the file you can
determine the tape Volser and file sequence number of the required backup.
This information can be supplied once the Dataset Restore function has been
invoked.
Method 2:
If you Keep Tape
Copies
If you maintain tape copies of the Backup Master file, you can use a service
of the IEB Restore function to read the tape copy of the Backup Master file
and display a selection list of all backups. You can then select the appropriate
backup from the list, and IEB Restore function discovers the Volser and file
sequence number information.
Method 3:
Backup Control
System Listings
You can use the Backup Control System listings to determine the tape Volser
and file sequence number of the required backup. This information can be
supplied once the IEB Restore function has been invoked.
Backup Control
System is
Optional
Using the Backup Control System is completely optional; it is not required to
create backups that are acceptable to the IEB Restore function. You can use
any IEBCOPY or IEBGENER job to make backups that are acceptable to IEB
Restore.
Advantages
Advantages of the Backup Control System are:



you can easily make backups
you can minimize tape usage
you can maintain vital restore information with availability in a stand alone
environment in mind.

Restoring Datasets with IEB Restore
Restore both
Sequential and
Partitioned
Datasets
The IEB Restore function can restore sequential and partitioned datasets from
a tape backup.


For sequential datasets, the tape backup is a copy (IEBGENER) of the disk
dataset.
For partitioned datasets, the tape backup must be created by an IEBCOPY
unload of the disk PDS.
Backup datasets must be on standard labeled tape reels (3420 type) or tape
cartridges (3480, 3490, 3590 types). The backup dataset must be contained on
a single tape volume; multi-volume datasets are not supported.
Restore
Definition
The term ‘restore’ describes a copy process from tape. NewEra designed the
IEB Restore function to appear similar to a copy between two disk datasets.
The description of restore involves three datasets:



Restoring a
Dataset from
Tape
the original dataset that was backed up (called the 'source dataset')
the backup dataset on tape (called the 'tape dataset')
the dataset being restored (called the 'target dataset')
To restore a dataset from tape you must know the tape Volser and the file
sequential number of the backup tape dataset.
If you are using the SAE Backup Control System, the Backup Master File
will contain that information. For more information see 'Backup Control
System' page 8-65.
Restoring from
Partitioned
Datasets
You can restore all or selected members from partitioned datasets.
The source dataset (original dataset that was backed up) must have had the
same organization (partitioned or sequential) and the same record format
(fixed, variable, or undefined) as the dataset being restored. The tape dataset
does not have to have been created from the dataset that is being restored. For
example, several members from a backup of SYS1.LINKLIB could be
restored to dataset SYS1.LPALIB.
For partitioned datasets, the record format can be fixed, variable, or
undefined. Partitioned dataset members are always added to the end of the
target dataset, acquiring additional extents as necessary.
For sequential datasets, a record format can be fixed or variable.
22-264
IEB Restore Dataset Restrictions
Source and
Target Datasets
Must Have Same
Organization and
Record Format
As previously mentioned, both the source dataset (original dataset that was
backed up) and the target dataset for the restore operation must be of the same
organization and record format.
Additional Rules
Additionally, datasets with keys, record format variable spanned, or record
format variable block spanned, are not supported. Depending on the record
format, additional restrictions apply.
Block Sizes
The record format restriction applies to base record format (fixed, variable or
undefined) and not variations of the same base record format. For example,
datasets of F, FB, FBA or FBM could be restored to one another.


For fixed and variable record format datasets, both the source and target datasets
must have the same logical record length. Block sizes may differ.
For undefined record format datasets, the maximum block size of the source
dataset cannot exceed the maximum block size of the target dataset.
22-265
GA
IEB Restore Target Dataset Selection
Identify the
Target Dataset
Once invoked, the IEB Restore function requires that you identify the target
dataset (the dataset in which the restore operation will write data).
You can identify the target dataset using the normal Unit Selection, Volume
Selection and Dataset selection screens. Instructional screens display to
remind you of the purpose of the selection (in this case, target dataset).
For more information on the Unit Selection, Volume Selection and Dataset
Selection screens, see Actions Services, page 14-125.

Backup Master
File Usage Screen
Once you select the dataset you want to restore, the Dataset Restore screen
appears. This screen controls whether or not a tape copy of the Backup
Master file is to be used in identifying the Volser and dataset file sequence
number of the backup tape.
DATASET RESTORE ------------------------------------------------------IN ORDER TO PERFORM THE RESTORE, THE TAPE VOLSER AND DATASET
FILE SEQUENCE NUMBER OF THE BACKUP MUST BE KNOWN. IF THE TAPE
WAS CREATED USING THE SAE BACKUP CONTROL SYSTEM, THE BACKUP
MASTER FILE (TAPE VOLUME SAEMT1 OR SAEMT2) WILL CONTAIN
THAT INFORMATION.
ACCESS THE SAE BACKUP MASTER FILE ==> YES (YES OR NO)
IF NO, THE VOLSER AND FILE SEQ # OF THE BACKUP MUST BE KNOWN
IF YES, A TAPE COPY OF THE BACKUP MASTER MUST BE AVAILABLE
Known Volser
and File
Sequence
Number
If you know the Volser and the file sequence number, then reply 'NO' to the
'ACCESS THE SAE BACKUP MASTER FILE' prompt. The process of
using the Backup Master file is then bypassed.
See 'IEB Backup Tape Mount' for instructions on how to continue.
If You Do Not
Know the Volser
and File
Sequence
Number
If you need to determine the Volser and file sequence number of the backup
tape using a tape copy of the Backup Master file, then reply 'YES'.
Backup Tape
Mount Screen
You can use the Backup Tape Mount screen to specify the volume and file
sequence number of the backup tape dataset to be used, and the tape drive on
which it is to be mounted.
If you specify 'YES', you must have a tape copy of the Backup Master file
available.
If you selected a dataset from the Backup Master Selection screen, then the
Volser and file sequence number display. If not, these values must be
supplied.

When restoring to a partitioned dataset, each new member (even if replaced)
is written to the end of the dataset and the directory is updated.
Avoiding Out-ofSpace Conditions
with EMPTY
To avoid out-of-space conditions, if you are replacing all of the target dataset
members, consider using the Dataset Information function's EMPTY
command on the target dataset first (see page 16-165 for more information).
This command will allow the restore to take place as if the target dataset was
newly allocated.

Alias Members
The Dataset Restore function provides some advanced processing for alias
members.
Whenever you select a member (non-alias) for restore (explicit selection or
copy all), SAE makes a search for any alias entries. All alias entries are
automatically restored.
An alias member cannot be selected for restore by itself, it can only be
restored as an automatic function of restoring the main member.

Tape Scan Overview
Tape Scan Short
and Tape Scan
Full
Both Tape Scan Short and Tape Scan Full can read and display a tape’s
contents.
Tape Scan Short reads the tape until the first block of the first data file is read.
Tape Scan Short
For a standard labeled tape, Tape Scan Short displays label information from
the volume and the first dataset, as well as displaying the first block of data
from the first dataset (Tape Scan Full reads the tape until an End-of-File is
encountered).
NewEra recommends Tape Scan Short when only information on the volume
and/or the first dataset is required.
Tape Scan Full
For a standard labeled tape, Tape Scan Full displays label information from
the volume and all datasets as well as displaying the first block of data from
the each dataset and the number of blocks in each dataset.
As Tape Scan Full must read the entire tape, it can take several minutes to
complete.
Stand Alone
Restores
When performing a stand alone restore, using either SAE or another
(DFSMSdss or FDR) stand alone restore utility, you must mount the backup
volumes in the correct order.
You can use SAE’s Tape Scan utility to quickly determine the volume order
by displaying each tape’s volume sequence number.
23-278

DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) Dataset Restore Overview
How DFSMSdss
Dataset Restore
Works
You can use the DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) Dataset Restore function to restore a
partitioned or sequential dataset from a DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) FULL or
DATASET backup.
The restore must be made to a like device type (for example, a 3390 backup
restored to 3390), but the number of cylinders on the device need not be the
same. If necessary, you can use SAE’s Copy function after the restore to copy
the dataset to a different device type. The target dataset for the restore must
already exist. You can use SAE’s Dataset Allocation function to allocate the
target dataset if it does not already exist (see page 16-169 for more
information).
The volume from which the DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) backup was created does
not have to be the volume on which the dataset is restored. If the target
dataset is smaller than the dataset being restored, SAE allocates additional
extents to accommodate the restore.
Volsers and
Volume
Restrictions
You can restore a dataset from a DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) backup that resides on
DASD or Tape. To restore a dataset from a DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) backup that
resides on tape, the tape Volsers of the backup must be known and the tape
volumes must be mounted in the correct order.
SAE’s LISTCAT/ALTERCAT function supports the extraction of the tape
volumes on which a cataloged dataset resides. If the DFSMSdss (DF/DSS)
backup dataset on tape is cataloged, you can use this feature to automatically
determine the required volumes and their sequence (see page 20-214 for more
information).
DFSMSdss
Restore and
FDR/DSF
Restore
The User Interface for performing a DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) restore is the same
as for performing a FDR/DSF restore. For this reason, both types of restore
are described together. From this point on, both DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) FULL
and DATASET backups are referred to as DSS.
24-282
DSS Dataset Restore Restrictions
Supported
Backups
SAE supports both DFSMSdss and DF/DSS backups that reside on DASD or
Tape. The supported backup types are FULL and DATASET for dataset
restore:


A DSS FULL backup is that of an entire DASD volume.
A DSS DATASET backup is that of selective datasets on a DASD volume.
COMPRESS Not
Supported
SAE does not support DSS backups created with the COMPRESS keyword.
The COMPRESS keyword instructs DSS to software compress each track
image before writing it to tape. The compression algorithm is unpublished
and proprietary to IBM, so SAE is not capable of de-compressing the track
images.
Hardware
Compression
Do not confuse this type of software compression with hardware compression
like IDRC used for Tape. SAE will restore from IDRC compressed tapes
(provided they are mounted on IDRC capable drives). With most installations
having IDRC-capable tape drives and doing hardware compression, NewEra
recommends that you do not use the DSS Software Compression for DSS
backups. This allows your DSS backups to be used for stand alone restores
using SAE.
Not Accurate for
DSS DATASET
Backups
DSS DATASET backups include a copy of the entire VTOC and not just the
VTOC Format-1 DSCBs for the actual datasets contained in the backup. For
this reason, the Dataset Selection Screen that lists the datasets contained
within a backup is not accurate for DSS DATASET backups and may list
datasets that are not contained within the backup.
VTOC Free
Space Invalid
Restoring a smaller volume to a device with larger capacity invalidates the
VTOC free space information. The VTOC free space information is rebuilt
when the next dataset allocation takes place on the volume using z/OS.
Unlabelled
Volumes
Unlabelled volumes do not appear on the Restore Volume Selection Screen.
To perform a full volume restore to a volume that does not already contain a
valid volume label, first initialize the volume using ‘V’ from the Hardware
Confirmation Volume Selection Screen (see page 20-254 for more
information).
Not All
DFSMSdss
Formats
Supported
SAE does not use DFSMSdss in processing dumps created by that product.
The file format of DFSMSdss dumps varies and may change from release to
release. SAE may not support all current DFSMSdss formats or the formats of
future DFSMSdss releases.

FDR/DSF Dataset Restore Overview
Using FDR
Dataset Restore
You can use the FDR Dataset Restore function to restore a partitioned or
sequential dataset from a FDR or DSF backup on DASD or Tape.
You must make the restore to a like device-type (for example, a 3390 backup
restored to 3390), but the number of cylinders on the device need not be the
same.
If necessary, you can use SAE’s Copy function after the restore to copy the
dataset to a different device type. The target dataset for the restore must
already exist.
You can use SAE’s dataset allocation function to allocate the target dataset if
it does not already exist. The volume from which the FDR or DSF backup
was created does not have to be the volume on which the dataset is restored.
If the target dataset is smaller than the dataset being restored, SAE allocates
additional extents to accommodate the restore.
Restoring a
Dataset from
FDR or DSF
Backup
You can restore a dataset from a FDR or DSF backup that resides on DASD
or Tape. To restore a dataset from an FDR or DSF backup that resides on
tape, you must know the tape Volsers of the backup, and the tape volumes
must be mounted in the correct order.
SAE’s LISTCAT/ALTERCAT function supports the extraction of the tape
volumes on which a cataloged dataset resides. If the FDR or DSF backup
dataset is cataloged, you can use this feature to automatically determine the
required volumes and their sequence (see page 20-214 for more information).
FDR and DSF
User Interface
The user interface for performing an FDR or DSF restore is the same as for
performing a DSS restore. For this reason, both types of restore are described
together. The sample screens shown are for DSS but the corresponding FDR
screens are very similar. From here on, both FDR and DSF backups are
referred to as FDR.
25-286
FDR Dataset Restore Restrictions
FDR and DSF
Backups
SAE supports both FDR and DSF backups that reside on DASD or Tape.
SAE supports both FDR and DSF (see restrictions below) backups for dataset
restore.


A FDR backup is that of an entire DASD volume.
A DSF backup is that of selective datasets on a DASD volume.
COMPRESS Not
Supported
SAE does not support FDR or DSF backups created with the COMPRESS
keyword. The COMPRESS=keyword parameter instructs FDR to software
compress each track image before writing it to tape. The compression
algorithm is unpublished and proprietary to Innovative Data Processing, so
SAE is not capable of de-compressing the track images.
Hardware
Compression
Do not confuse this type of software compression with hardware compression
like IDRC. SAE will restore from IDRC compressed tapes (provided they are
mounted on IDRC capable drives). With most installations having IDRCcapable tape drives and doing hardware compression, NewEra recommends
that you do not use the FDR Software Compression for FDR backups. This
allows your FDR backups to be used for stand alone restores using SAE.
DSF Backups
With VTOC
Supported
SAE only supports DSF backups that include the VTOC.
VTOC Free
Space Invalid
Restoring a smaller volume to a device with larger capacity invalidates the
VTOC free space information. The VTOC free space information is rebuilt
when the next dataset allocation takes place on the volume using z/OS.
Unlabelled
Volumes
Unlabelled volumes do not appear on the Restore Volume Selection Screen.
To perform a full volume restore to a volume that does not already contain a
valid volume label, first initialize the volume using ‘V’ from the Hardware
Confirmation Volume Selection Screen (see page 20-254 for more
information).
Not All FDR
Formats
Supported
SAE does not use FDR in processing backups created by that product. The
file format of FDR backups varies and may change from release to release.
SAE may not support all current FDR formats or the formats of future FDR
releases.
The VTOC is included for DSF backups that specify the DSN=VTOC
specification. NewEra recommends that all DSF backups of system datasets
include the TYPE=DSF,DSN=VTOC specification so you can use these
backups for stand alone dataset restores using SAE.

Requirements
To perform a stand alone dataset restore from a DSS or FDR backup using
SAE, the following are required:
If restoring from a DSS or FDR backup that resides on DASD:



The name and location (volume) of the DSS or FDR backup dataset on DASD.
The name and location (volume) of an existing target dataset.
Dataset name of the source dataset (dataset that was backed up).

These functions are described in the following sections. If you have all the
required information, you may skip over these sections.
26-291
GA
Obtaining Backup Tape Volsers
Extracting
Required Volsers
When restoring from Tape, if you do not know the volume serial numbers of
the DSS or FDR backup that you wish to use, but you have cataloged your
backup datasets, you can use the Action Services LISTCAT/ALTERCAT
Capture command to extract the required Volsers (see page 20-214 for more
information). You must know at least the high level prefix of the cataloged
backup datasets.
The LISTCAT/ALTERCAT Capture command can be useful in determining
the correct backup tapes, even if you are performing a full volume restore
with another stand alone restore utility.
Searching for the
Volume
If you know the name of the z/OS Catalog under which your backup datasets
are cataloged, you can have the Action Services Unit Selection Screen search
for the volume that contains the catalog:
Step
Action
1.
Select the volume from the Volume Selection Screen.
2.
On the Dataset Selection List, locate and select the Catalog.
3.
On the ALTERCAT selection list, locate the backup tape dataset you
want to use.
4.
Next to the backup tape dataset, place the line command ‘C’.
5.
Press Enter.

Using the Master
Catalog
If you do not know the name of the z/OS Catalog under which your backup
datasets are cataloged, you must follow the alias entries from your Master
Catalog.


If you do not know the name and location of your Master Catalog, use the z/OS
Inspect application to access the Master Catalog.
If you know the name and location of the Master Catalog, then use Action
Services to get to the ALTERCAT Selection list for the Master.

Obtaining Backup Tape Volsers, Continued
Locating the
Backup Datasets
When you are in the ALTERCAT selection list for the Master Catalog,
perform a locate on the high level prefix for your backup dataset names.
If you find the backup datasets cataloged in the Master Catalog, you can use
the ‘C’ capture command as described above.
If, however, you find the high level prefix is an alias entry, then note the
name of the associated User Catalog and do a locate on that name. You will
see the User Catalog entry and the volume on which it resides. You now
know the name and location of the catalog in which your backup datasets are
cataloged and can proceed as described above.

GA
Obtaining Tape Drive Unit Addresses
Hardware
Confirmation
Application
When restoring from Tape, if you do not know the addresses of the tape
drives attached to the system on which SAE is running, you can use the
Hardware Confirmation application to list them (see page 20-244 for more
information).
Procedure
Using the Hardware Confirmation application, enter only the appropriate
device types (for example, 3480, 3490, 3590) on the Unit Selection screen,
and press Enter. The resulting Device Selection Screen lists all attached
devices that meet your specification.
Running Tape
Scan
If you run Tape Scans to determine the contents or volume sequence numbers
of tapes, select a tape drive from the Device Selection Screen and you are
taken directly into the Tape Scan with the tape device address already copied
over.
26-294
Obtaining Dataset Information
Dataset Restore
For dataset restore, if the target dataset already exists, you can use normal
Action Services to locate the dataset.
If you need to allocate a new dataset as the target dataset for the restore, you
may require dataset information (DCB) about the source dataset. You can use
the DSS INSPECT and FDR INSPECT functions to view the Dataset
Information Screen for a Dataset contained within a DSS or FDR Backup.
See the description of the Inspect functions for more information.
26-295

Dataset
Information
Screen Contents
The Dataset Information Screen displays the attributes of the dataset that is
contained within the backup.
The unit address field for the DASD volume displays as =DSS or =FDR to
indicate the volume is contained within a backup. This information is
extracted from the VTOC that is contained within the backup. The VTOC
does not contain information on the number of directory blocks within a PDS.
For this reason, a value of ?????? displays for the directory blocks field.
Directory Blocks
are Overwritten
If you are using the Dataset Information to allocate the target dataset, do not
be concerned with the number of directory blocks. The restore completely
overwrites the target dataset, therefore, the number of directory blocks in the
target dataset prior to the restore is of no consequence.
Determining the
Extent’s Physical
Location
You can use the dataset extent layout (shown on the right side of the display)
to determine the physical location of the dataset’s extents on the original
volume.

Performing a DSS or FDR Restore
Dataset Restore
Target
Identification
If you perform a Dataset restore (Option 5 - DSS Dataset or Option 8 -FDR
Dataset), the first thing to do is identify the target dataset (that the restore
process overwrites).
The target dataset must exist before you can perform the restore. If the target
dataset does not exist, you may use the Inspect function to determine the
dataset characteristics of the source dataset, and then use SAE’s Dataset
Allocation to create the target dataset.
See ‘Preparing for a DSS or FDR Restore’ for more information.
Identifying the
Target Dataset
You can identify the target dataset with the normal Unit Selection, Volume
Selection and Dataset Selection Screens. Instructional screens appear to

selection).
For more information on the Unit Selection, Volume Selection and Dataset
Selection screens, see Actions Services.

Tape List Screen
Overview
When performing a DSS or FDR restore operations, if you select Option 1 to
indicate that the backup source is on Tape, the Tape List Screen displays.
The Tape List Screen lists the DSS or FDR backup tape volumes, and tape
units that will be used for the restore. If you use the LISTCAT/ALTERCAT
Capture command to extract the tape volume serial numbers for a cataloged
backup dataset, then those Volsers automatically appear on the Tape List
Screen. The Tape List Screen provides the ability to associate a tape volume
with a tape device and, with tape volume pre-mounting, avoids any delays
and requirements for manual intervention during the restore.
Optional
The use of the Tape List Screen is optional; if you leave it blank (or cleared
with the CLEAR command), you must then enter the tape unit address and
tape volume serial information individually each time a mount is required.

Complete Premount - Fastest
and No
Intervention
If you have a sufficient number of tapes drives available to pre-mount each
tape volume, then you can avoid any manual intervention as each tape is
required.
Mount each volume on a Tape Drive and then specify in the Unit field
associated with each volume the Tape Drive Unit Address that was used. SAE
processes each volume sequentially; and on volume switch, SAE attempts to
read from the specified Tape Unit. If the tape is pre-mounted and the Volser
correct, SAE continues processing without any manual intervention.

If you have two tape drives available, you can ensure that the next tape is
always ‘pre-mount’.
In the Unit field associated with each volume, specify one of the two Tape
Drive Unit Addresses, alternating between them. Mount the first two tapes on
the available drives and as each tape unloads, mount the next one. This
technique allows SAE to continue with the next tape immediately, without
having to wait for tape rewind and unload. SAE processes each volume
sequentially, and on volume switch, SAE attempts to read from the specified

Intervention
If you only have a single tape drive available (which has a cartridge loader),
then you can use it to perform the tape mounts.
Enter the cartridges in the correct order into the Cartridge Loader and ensure
the loader is not in Manual Mode. Specify the Tape Drive Unit Address in the
Unit field associated with first volume. You may leave the other Unit fields
blank.
This technique avoids manual intervention, but requires SAE to wait for
rewind/unload before the next tape can begin processing. When SAE
completes the processing of one volume on a Tape Unit that has an installed
Cartridge Loader and the next volume’s field is blank, SAE waits a preset
number of seconds (to allow for the cartridge to auto load) then attempts to
read from the specified Tape Unit. If the tape is mounted and the Volser

26-310
Restore Time
Physical Dumps
The backups created by DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) and FDR/DSF are physical
dumps of DASD volumes. This means that the DASD Tracks are dumped to
tape in an order that is consistent with their location on the DASD volume,
and with little regard to which tracks make up a particular dataset.
Restoring a
Single Dataset
Datasets are made up of extents, with each extent being a group of one or
more tracks somewhere on the DASD volume.
To perform a single dataset restore from a physical DASD backup, you must
restore each track from each extent. However, the tracks contained within a
physical dump backup dataset are dumped from the low DASD track address
(for example, CYL 0000 TRACK 0000) to the high DASD track address.
Sequential Media
The backup is a sequential dataset. This means that when restoring from a
backup, to read the highest track dumped within a backup requires that SAE
reads all the dumped tracks. The amount of time required to restore a single
dataset from a physical dump varies greatly depending on the location of the
datasets extents relative to the start of the volume.
Example
Consider the following examples:
SYS1.TEST1
EXT STARTING
CCCCHHHH
1 00700000
2 00B20000
3 00600000
4 00610000
5 00620000
SYS1.TEST2
ENDING
CCCCHHHH
00A4000E
00B2000E
0060000E
0061000E
0062000E
Total tracks: 128
EXT STARTING
CCCCHHHH
1 004E0000
2 09780000
3 00200000
ENDING
CCCCHHHH
004E000E
0978000E
0020000E
Total tracks: 45
Dataset SYS1.TEST1 is much larger and is in many more extents than dataset
SYS1.TEST2. It will be restored much faster because restoring the second
extent of dataset SYS1.TEST2 requires Cylinder x’0978’ (2424) and this high
addressed track is close to the end of the backup tape(s). All of dataset
SYS1.TEST1 can be restored by processing the backup tape(s) to Cylinder
x’00B2’ (178).
Inspect Function
You can use the Inspect function to view the Dataset Information for a dataset
within the backup and see its extent layout. This provides an idea of how
much data must be read before you can completely restore the dataset.
Continued on next page
26-311
GA
Restore Time, Continued
Dataset Backups
Contain Less
Data
Dataset backups (DSS DATASET and DSF) will, in most cases, contain less
data than a full volume dump, because only the tracks required for the
selected datasets are dumped. Restore operations from these types of dumps
take less time versus full volume dumps.
Closer is Faster
The closer the entire dataset is to the beginning of the volume, the quicker the
single dataset restore runs.
26-312
Performing a DSS or FDR Compare
DASD Track and
Tape Records
DASD tracks contained within a DSS or FDR backup dataset on tape may be
broken into several tape records or one tape record may contain several
DASD tracks.
SAE must extract and re-construct these track images to perform the restore.
Since SAE is not used to create these backup datasets, changes in the way
DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) or FDR/DSF create these backup tapes may affect
SAE’s ability to properly re-construct each track image.
Compare
Function
SAE provides a DSS and FDR Full Volume and Dataset Compare function to
test SAE’s support of backup tapes created by DFSMSdss (DF/DSS) and
FDR/DSF.
These Compare functions are similar to restore in that each track image is
extracted and re-constructed from the backup tape. Unlike Restore, however,
the Compare function reads the corresponding track from the target volume
and compares the two. No writes are performed to the target volume or
dataset.
The idea behind the Compare functions is that a DSS or FDR backup is taken
of a DASD Volume or dataset and then SAE is used to compare the contents
of the backup to the original. Of course, you must ensure that the volume or
dataset cannot be altered between the time of the backup and the time of the
compare. If SAE finds no differences, you can be confident that SAE is
capable of extracting and re-constructing track images from your current
release of DSS or FDR.
26-313
GA
Full Volume DSS/FDR Compare
Overview
With the Full Volume Compare, SAE compares each DASD track contained
within a backup to the corresponding absolute track on the target volume.
For the test to be meaningful, the target volume must be the same volume
from which the backup was made and the volume must not have been altered
in any way since the backup was made.
Setting Up a
Compare Test
In setting up a compare test, select a DASD volume that is not in use (for
example, an old SYSRES volume) or a volume for which you can ensure
there is currently no write activity (your DLIB volume perhaps).
Perform your normal full volume dump (DSS or FDR) and then perform the
Full Volume Compare.
Invoking the Full
Compare
To invoke the Full Volume Compare, follow the same steps as if you were
going to perform a DSS or FDR restore, but stop at the Backup Information
Screen.
These steps include:
Step
Action
1.
Select the target volume (the one that was just backed up) and a target
dataset. For the Full Volume Compare, the target dataset is ignored, so
select any dataset on the volume.
2.
Identify the required backup on DASD or if on Tape, the volumes and
tape drives on the Tape List Screen.
3.
If the backup is on Tape, proceed with the first volume mount.

26-315
GA
DSS/FDR Dataset Compare
Overview
With Dataset Compare, SAE compares each DASD track of the source
dataset contained within a backup tape to the corresponding relative track in
the target dataset.
As the Dataset Compare function compares relative tracks within the datasets
(unlike the Full Volume Compare which compares absolute tracks), the
source and target datasets do not have to be on the same volume or at the
same location on a volume.
For the test to be meaningful, the target dataset must be the same dataset from
which the backup was made, and the dataset must not have been altered in
any way since the backup was made. If the target dataset is smaller than the
source dataset, its size will be increased prior to the compare.
Comparing
Datasets
You can use Dataset Compare to compare a dataset within the backup to the
original dataset or to compare it to a dataset restored from the backup under
z/OS using DSS or FDR.
No Write
Activity
In setting up a Compare test, select a dataset for which you can ensure that
there is currently no write activity.
Invoking Dataset
Compare
To invoke Dataset Compare, follow the same steps as if you were going to
perform a DSS or FDR restore, but stop at the Restore Confirmation Screen.

The copy must be made between like device types (for example, 3390 to 3390).
The number of cylinders on the target device must be equal to or greater than the
number of cylinders on the source device.
When you copy a smaller volume to a device with larger capacity, the VTOC
free space information becomes invalid. The VTOC free space information is
rebuilt when the next dataset allocation takes place on the volume using z/OS.

Volume Copy Source and Target Identification
Identify the
Source Volume
If you perform a Volume Copy (Option 10 - Volume Copy), the first required

The identification of the source volume is performed with the normal Unit
Selection and Volume Selection Screens. An instructional screen appears to
remind you of the purpose of the selection (in this case, source volume
selection).
For more information on the Unit Selection and Volume Selection screens,
see Actions Services.
Identify the
Target Volume
After identifying the source volume, you must then identify the target volume
(the volume that is overwritten by the copy process).
The identification of the target volume is performed with the normal Unit
Selection, and Volume Selection Screens. An instructional screen appears to

Volume Compare Overview
Overview
The Volume Compare function compares an entire DASD volume to another.
The compare must be made between like device types (for example, 3390 to
3390), and the number of cylinders on the target device must be equal to or
greater than the number of cylinders on the source device.
Track Level
Compare
The Volume Compare performs a track level compare.
The primary purpose of a track level compare is to validate the volume copy
operations (for example, Snap Shot). It is not practical to use Volume
Compare to determine differences in logical records within datasets.
28-324
Volume Compare Source and Target Identification
Identify the
Source Volume
When you perform a Volume Compare (Option 11 - Volume Compare), you
must first identify the source volume (the first of the two volumes that are
compared).
To identify the source volume, use the normal Unit Selection and Volume
Selection Screens. An instructional screen appears to remind you of the
purpose of the selection (in this case, source volume selection).
For more information on the Unit Selection and Volume Selection screens,
see Actions Services.
Identify the

After identifying the source volume, you must identify the target volume (the
second of the two volumes that are compared).
To identify the target volume, use the normal Unit Selection and Volume
Selection Screens. An instructional screen appears to remind you of the

Wait State Codes
Wait State
Descriptions
During normal operation, SAE indicates certain states by loading an enabled
wait state PSW. The following list identifies the state that corresponds to the
low order three bytes of the wait state PSW:
Wait State
Description
FF0000
Initial wait state after SAE has been successfully loaded. It indicates
that SAE is waiting for an interrupt from the 3278-2 type device which
will be used as a console
FF0xxx
The normal wait state when waiting for an I/O interrupt from device
xxx. When no operations are active, xxx is the console address.

Wait State Codes, Continued
Error Condition
Description
SAE indicates certain error conditions by loading a disabled wait state PSW.
For disabled wait states, most processors display the wait state PSW on the
processor system console and signal the condition with an audible alarm. The
following list identifies the conditions that correspond to the low order three
bytes of the disabled wait state PSW:
Note: In each case, the low order three bytes of the PSW are for xxDEAD,
where xx is the specific error code.
Error
Condition
Description
39
An attempt was made to use SAE on a processor that does not
support z/Architecture mode. SAE R16 only operates in
z/Architecture mode. If the processor only supports S/370/XA,
S/370/ESA or S/390 mode, you must use SAE Release 15. If the
processor only supports S/370 mode, you must use SAE Release 9.9.
A0
A PSW restart has been attempted or SAE termination was requested.
A1
SAE detected a machine check interrupt.
A3
SAE detected an error for the console device.
Re-IPL SAE and use a different console. If the problem persists, take
a stand-alone dump and contact NewEra Technical Support staff.
A4
The time of day (TOD) clock is in an error, stopped, or notoperational state
A5
Indicates an internal stack error. Take a stand-alone dump and
contact NewEra Technical Support staff.
A6
An I/O error occurred during tape IPL. The tape may contain a data
check or the tape was incorrectly created.
A7
An error occurred that prevented an audit record from being written
to the audit control dataset, so the audit was enabled with
AUDIT_TYPE=ENABLE
A8
Indicates an internal GET/FREE control block error.
A9
Indicates an internal FREE MAIN error.
AA
While IPLing SAE from DASD, the SAE NUCLEUS dataset could
not be found or read.
By
An authorization error. Contact NewEra Technical support staff.
Cy
Indicates a program check has occurred. If console I/O is still
possible, a message appears indicating the interrupt code and address.
Take a stand-alone dump and contact NewEra support staff.
28-331
GA
Stand Alone Dump
SAE Stand Alone
Dump
If a problem occurs, it is often necessary to take a Stand Alone Dump of SAE
to help the NewEra Technical Support Staff in diagnosing the problem.
Procedure
To take the Stand Alone Dump:
Step
Action
1.
Perform a STORE STATUS for the CP on which SAE is running.
2.
IPL from the unit containing SADMP.
3.
Perform normal SADMP procedures as if z/OS was being dumped (tape
output is recommended).
Result: SADMP should indicate that all real storage was dumped, but
virtual storage was not.
28-332
I/O Errors
I/O Error Screen
If an I/O error occurs during a SAE operation, an I/O Error Screen displays
over the current screen. The I/O Error screen gives specific information on the
I/O error and may be helpful in determining the cause.
Screen Print
Use screen print (PF12/PF24) to permanently record the I/O Error Screen
contents.
