Restore Problem with ADRDSSU

Postby johnmauro » Tue May 13, 2008 12:51 am

I am trying to restore a VSAM file from OS390 to z/OS using IBM's ADRDSSU utility. I perfrom a logical backup of the cluster which is confirmed in the output of the job. But when I try to restoe it on z/OS, I get an error message stating:
ADR487W not in logical format. Can anyone help me with this?
Thanks,
John

Hello John,

Please post the jcl, control statements, and the sysout from the backup run.

Also, please post the same for the problem restore.

If you need this file quickly, i'd suggest you REPRO the data into a qsam file and then DEFINE the vsam file on the target system and REPRO the data into the file. This would get your data soonest until the other issue is resolved.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Hi John,

You're welcome.

It occurred to me that there might be a compatability issue between the OS390 and z/OS backup formats. Is it possible that additional info is needed to tell ADRDSSU that this backup came from OS390 rather than from a z/OS backup?
Hope this helps,
d.sch.
