DMSII Changes to Record Layouts

DMSII record layouts are changed in the following circumstances:

When DBEngine notifies the DATABridge Client that a data set has been reorganized as a result of a record format conversion or filler substitution, the DATABridge Client returns a message to that effect for each reorganized data set. After a message appears for each reorganized data set, the following message appears:

Stopping: Database reorganization--execute a redefine command followed by a generate command

In this case, the DATABridge Client returns an exit_status value of 2 (DMSII reorganization) as listed in dbutility exit_status. You must execute a redefine command followed by a reorg command (not a generate command as indicated by the message).

To recover, follow the instructions in Recovering after a DMSII Reorganization.
