    QUESTION:

    How do I resize the Mainview for DB2 trace log data sets (TLDS) without losing the data in them?


    ANSWER:

     

    To resize the Mainview for DB2 trace log datasets (TLDS) without losing the data in the TLDS, the following process may be used:

      
       
    1. Identify the dataset names of the TLDS that need to be resized.
    2.  
    3. Archive the TLDS datasets using the DZTBARC job in the hlq..BMCSAMP lib; this job will archive the TLDS to a flat file.
    4.  
    5. Delete and define the TLDS with the same name and larger size using the sample JCL in member JXT011 in the hlq..BMCSAMP lib.
    6.  
    7. Load the archive data back into the TLDS file using the sample JCL in member DZTBRLOD in the hlq..BMCSAMP lib.
