Specifying Location of Audit Files

Accessories can specify where the Engine should look for audit files. The default is the pack stated in the DMSII CONTROL file.

With the DATABridge Span, Server, and Tanker Accessories, you can edit the AUDIT ON packname option in their respective parameter files. You might do this when you don’t run the accessory very often, such as running it only at night. In this case, the audit files are probably moved to a different location by the time you run the Accessory (for example, to tape).

Finally, regardless of where the Engine is looking for audit files, an operator can change that location by responding to a NO FILE auditfilename condition as follows:

mixnumber FA FAMILYNAME = packname, KIND = DISK, CYCLE = 0

where mixnumber is the mix number of the Accessory. DBEngine will continue to look on the pack specified by packname for subsequent audit files.
