Hi All,
I have a requirement in which I have to take the backup of a changeman package regularly.
Is there a way to access changeman packages using REXX (we use Serena Changeman)

thanks

hi...
As of my knowledge....you can't write REXX to invoke changeman and issure commands to changemen. SAS can be handy...

To take backup for changemen....your shop will be having the JCL. You can write a REXX utility to invoke this JCL.

As Changeman uses PDS as repository, why REXX doesn't fit?
The only issue might be an authorization access. Not more.

Or is it more complicate?

Cheers

Thank you Pierre and Vamsi.

Vamsi, could you send me a sample jcl for the process?

Thanks.

As Mr. Pierre already suggested, Changeman repository would be some PDS at your shop then why can't a simple job having access on that perticular PDS take a back up.

Didn't you notice the PDS Name displaying at the top, whenever you browse any changeman component.

Hi all,

I have noticed the PDS name when the components are displayed.
The problem is that the PDS name will be displayed only for those components in production library(ie when Browse option is used).

My requirement is to backup files in a PACKAGE.
The members will be having a dynamic location, each time we try to view the data. So we cant focus on a single PDS to get the job done.

thanks

Hi,
since changeman uses the PDS as its repository you can copy the contents from the changeman PDS to backup PDS using LMCOPY in rexx without invoking the changeman package itself.
