Configuring and Starting the DMSII Client
Complete the following steps to configure and start the DMSII Client to clone the DMSII database.
If you set COMPILE MANUAL (typically used when the DASDL and DMALGOL compilers are not available to the DMSII Client software) in the DMSII Client parameter file, there are several manual steps you must complete as documented in steps 6 through 13 below.
Get the DMSII Client DASDL patch file using CANDE, as follows:
GET PATCH/DATABRIDGE/DMSIICLIENT/SAMPLE/DASDL AS PATCH/ DATABRIDGE/DMSIICLIENT/clientdbname/DASDL
where clientdbnameis the name of the client database you are creating. It is strongly recommended that the name of the client database be different from the name of the primary database so that there is no confusion as to which database you are using.
Modify and then save the DMSII Client DASDL patch file to reflect settings for your site. See Modifying the DMSII Client DASDL File.
Get the DMSII Client parameter file using CANDE, as follows:
GET DATA/DMSIICLIENT/SAMPLE/CONTROL AS DATA/DMSIICLIENT/ clientdbname/CONTROL
where clientdbnameis the name of the client database you are creating.
Modify and then save the DMSII Client parameter file to reflect settings for your site. See Modifying the DMSII Client Parameter File.
Start the DMSII Client by entering the following command:
START WFL/DATABRIDGE/DMSIICLIENT ("clientdbname")
where clientdbnameis the name of the client database you are creating.
The DMSII Client will generate and compile the DASDL for the client database. The message that appears next depends on your setting for the COMPILE parameter in the DMSII Client parameter (step 2).
If Then COMPILE AUTO The DMSII Client displays the following message and then waits for the DMSupport library to compile:
Waiting for DMSupport compilation
After DMSupport is compiled, the client database will be initialized with empty structures and then the DMSII Client will clone the primary database.
At this point, you are finished with this procedure. Go to “What to Do Next ” below.
COMPILE MANUAL The DMSII Client displays the following message and then terminates:
Use WFL/DATABRIDGE/DMSIICLIENT/COMPILEDB to compileclientdbname
Continue with step 6.
Compile the client database by starting the following
WFL: WFL/DATABRIDGE/DMSIICLIENT/COMPILEDB ("clientdbname")
where clientdbnameis the name of the client database you are compiling.
When the COMPILEDB WFL is finished, if the compiled software is on a different pack or usercode than the DMSII Client, copy the following files to the DMSII Client usercode and pack:
DESCRIPTION/clientdbname DMSUPPORT/clientdbname RECONSTRUCT/clientdbname OBJECT/DATABRIDGE/DMSIICLIENT/LIB/clientdbname
Create the empty database structure by running the following utility:
SYSTEM/DMUTILITY ("DB= clientdbname INITIALIZE =")
Run the DMSII Client to clone the database by entering the following command:
START WFL/DATABRIDGE/DMSIICLIENT ("clientdbname")
What to Do Next
The DMSII Client either waits for additional audit information or terminates, depending on the value of the MAXWAIT option in the parameter file. At this point, the client database is ready to use.
If you want to view the status of the DMSII Client, enter the AX STATUS command as described in DMSII Client AX Commands.
You can register the DMSII Client for auto connect so that Databridge Server initiates it when updates are available. To do this, enter the REGISTER command as described Starting and Stopping the DMSII Client.
Modifying the DMSII Client DASDL File
The DMSII Client DASDL file (PATCH/DATABRIDGE/DMSIICLIENT/clientdbname/DASDL) is the source file for the client database. It provides information on where and how the client database will be created.
Although this is not a typical option, if you want to make the client database unaudited for improved performance and reduced disk storage, you could set the \$ UNAUDITED option to compile the library for an unaudited client database. The cost of this is recloning or reloading the database if a failure occurs on the secondary system.
The DMSII Client DASDL file follows the procedure below.
If you are completing step 2 in "Configuring and Starting the DMSII Client," use the following information to configure your DMSII Client DASDL file. After you have configured the DMSII Client DASDL file, continue with step 3 above.
Modify the DASDL file settings by completing the following steps:
Set the FAMILYNAME attribute in the AUDIT TRAIL section.
For any primary-side sets you want declared on the client side, declare the following somewhere near the top in the DASDL file:
$ SET setname1 setname2 setname3 ...
For any primary-side subsets you want declared on the client side, declare one of the following somewhere near the top in the DASDL file:
$ SET ALLSUBSETS
$ SET subsetname1 subsetname2 subsetname3 ...
Change other parameters and audit trail attributes indicated in the comments of the DASDL file, if desired. If you decide to change any of these parameters and audit trail attributes, refer to your Unisys DMSII Data and Structure Definition Language (DASDL) Programming Referencemanual for detailed information about the parameters and audit file attributes.
Sample DMSII Client DASDL File
Following is the sample DMSII Client DASDL file (PATCH/DATABRIDGE/DMSIICLIENT/clientdbname/DASDL) that you must modify by replacing the items in angle brackets with your entry.

Before generating a database with the DMSII Client, you may modify this file with local preferences. The PARAMETERS and AUDIT TRAIL attributes can be adjusted as desired. The DMSII Client can function with any settings in these sections. By default, the DMSII Client database will not have any of the sets found in the original database. The generated DASDL, however, does contain the declarations for these sets surrounded by a pair of $ SET OMIT = ^ <setname> and $ POP OMIT. The <setname> is the original name of the set minus any hyphens. If you want to include any of these sets in the client database you should put $ SET <setname> in this file *before* the insertion point, which is marked by "@". For example, if you want to include the sets CUSTNAMESET and ORD-BY-DATE in the client database you should put the following lines in this file: $ SET CUSTNAMESET $ SET ORDBYDATE Important! Save this file as PATCH/DATABRIDGE/DMSIICLIENT/<clientdb>/DASDL. Modification history -------------------- Version 40.461 Initial version. Version 41.471 1 Added POPULATIONINCR = 100 to avoid waiting entries messages about population increases. Version 42.491 1 Added $ UNAUDITED for compiling an unaudited database. Version 50.503 1 Removed the FAMILYNAME option from the DEFAULTS declaration because the DMSII Client now generates it from the CLIENT DATABASE option. Similarly, the CONTROL FILE declaration has been removed because it is now generated.

Modifying the DMSII Client Parameter File
The DMSII Client parameter file (DATA/DMSIICLIENT/clientdbname/CONTROL) is a SEQDATA file. It provides information on where and how to locate the Server Accessory SOURCE for the primary database.
If you are completing step 4 in Configuring and Starting the DMSII Client, use the following information to configure your DMSII Client parameter file. After you have configured the DMSII Client parameter file, continue with step 5.
The following is the sample DMSII Client parameter file that you must modify by replacing the items in angle brackets with your entry.
