To create a system catalog using mfdbcutil

Enter the following command:

mfdbcutil -c

If you plan to grant database and table privileges to individual users, use the -pa option as well to create a user/group catalog and an object permissions catalog:

mfdbcutil -c -pa

Because the above command will create all of the system catalog files in the current directory, you may want to use this command instead:

mfdbcutil -c -pa -d %GENESIS_HOME%\mfsyscat

The command syntax for mfdbcutil is described in the section mfdbcutil Syntax.

Note: If you use the -d option to specify a catalog path, be sure to amend your COBOL configuration file to point to your system catalog. Do this using the DICTSOURCE variable.
