Reasons for recloning include the following:

  • DMSII reorganization
  • DMSII rollback
  • An update is not possible (for example, because a table does not have a unique key)
  • One or more of the DATABridge data tables in the relational database were removed

You can use either the process or clone command to reclone data sets. The clone command lets you specify individual data sets on the command. The process command automatically reclones all data sets whose active column is 1 and whose ds_mode column is 0. Both commands perform fixups, tracking and processing updates as needed (unless the defer_fixup_phase or the stop_after fixups parameter is set to True). See Recloning Individual Data Sets.

If you're recloning the entire database, the process is more involved. See Recloning a Database.
