TAA Tools

The  Restore Many  Changes  command restores  from  a tape  created  by
SAVCHGOBJ  or TAA tools  such as SAVALLCHG  which uses SAVCHGOBJ.   The
command  allows  one  or  more  libraries  to  be  restored.    See the
companion command  RSTALLCHG which allows  a restore  of all  libraries
from a tape with an optional list of excluded libraries.

You  must be  authorized to  the TAARSTALLC  authorization list  to use

A typical command would be:

             RSTMNYCHG     DEV(xxx) LIB(aaa bbb ccc)

The  libraries must  have been  saved by  the SAVCHGOBJ  or a  TAA Tool
such as  SAVALLCHG  which uses  SAVCHGOBJ.   If  the library  does  not
exist, it  will be  created and  then the  restore occurs.   A  summary
listing occurs.

Other comments

  **   You  must take the  default of  LABEL(*LIB) on the  save command
       in order for RSTALLCHG to be successful.

  **   If SAVCHGOBJ  LIB(*ALLUSR)  was  used,  the  first  file  output
       contains the  library names.   This file  must be bypassed  with
       the SEQNBR option.

  **   If  libraries exist that  were not  saved by SAVCHGOBJ  (such as
       that  saved by  SAVSECDTA), they are  bypassed and  noted on the

RSTMNYCHG escape messages you can monitor for

None.  Escape messages from based on functions will be re-sent.

Command parameters                                    *CMD

   DEV           The tape  device name.   Only a  single device may  be
                 named (no overlap rewind support).

   LIB           A  list of  up to  300 libraries  to be  restored.   A
                 generic name may be used.

   SEQNBR        The   beginning  tape  file  sequence   number.    The
                 default  is  *SEARCH   meaning  to   search  for   the
                 libraries you specified.

                 A different  number should be  used if you  have other
                 files on  the same tape you want  to jump over such as
                 the first file  created by a  function like  SAVCHGOBJ
                 LIB(*ALLUSR).   You may also  use the  sequence number
                 if  the  restore  was  interrupted  and  you  want  to
                 continue  or you  want to  begin the  restore with the
                 Nth volume of a multi-volume save.

   ENDOPT        Whether  to  rewind  the  tape  at  the  end   of  the
                 command.   The default is *REWIND.   *LEAVE or *UNLOAD
                 can  be specified.   The  option you specify  does not
                 take  affect  until   the  last   RSTOBJ  command   is

   OPTION        Whether  to  restore  all objects,  new  objects  etc.
                 This is the same parameter as on RSTOBJ.

   MBROPT        The  data  base member  option.   The  values  are the
                 same as  on  RSTOBJ, but  the  default is  changed  to
                 *ALL instead  of  *MATCH.   Other values  that may  be
                 entered are *MATCH, *NEW, and *OLD.

   ALWOBJDIF     Whether to  allow object differences or not.   This is
                 the  same  parameter  as  on the  RST  commands.   The
                 default is *ALL  which differs from the  RST commands.

   OUTPUT        Whether to  print a  listing of the  restored objects.
                 This  is the  same option as  on RSTOBJ.   The default
                 is *NONE  or you  may specify  *PRINT.   A listing  to
                 the  RSTMNYCHG  spooled  file (one  line  per  library
                 restored) will always occur.

   CHKSAVRST     A  *YES/*NO option for  should the  TAA Tool CHKSAVRST
                 command The  default  is  *YES.    The  TAA  CHKSAVRST
                 command  will  produce  a  listing   of  all  the  S/R
                 messages  which have  occurred during  the job.   When
                 the  RSTALLCHG command  begins and ends,  a message is
                 sent to the  job log with  the CPF9898 message.   This
                 will be  picked up by the CHKSAVRST  command to assist
                 you  in  determining  which  messages  belong  to  the
                 RSTALLCHG command.

   ERRORSONLY    A  *YES/*NO  value  which  defaults  to  *YES.    This
                 minimizes  the   number  of  messages  that   will  be
                 printed.    This parameter  is passed  through  to the
                 CHKSAVRST command.    See  CHKSAVRST  for  a  complete


You must be authorized to the TAARSTALLC authorization list.

The  tape must  have  been  written by  SAVCHGOBJ  or  one of  the  TAA
commands such as SAVALLCHG which use SAVCHGOBJ internally.


The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

     CHKGENERC       Check generic
     CHKSAVRST       Check save/restore
     EDTVAR          Edit variable
     SNDDIAGMSG      Send diagnostic message
     SNDESCINF       Send escape information
     SNDESCMSG       Send escape message
     SNDJLGMSG       Send job log message
     SNDSTSMSG       Send status message


None, the tool is ready to use.
