Folks,
Is there a way that in the software tool SAR, the REPORTS stored therein can be downloaded to a CD-ROM.
If not then alternatively is it possible to download any report onto a CD-ROM. Does AWS play a role in this.??
Any help appreciated.
Cheers...
Yogi

What is SAR? Is it related to Mainframe?

Yes Priya, It is related to Mainframes. SAR is used as a repository where you can see your production jobs after completion and reports too.

My grey matter is not what it used to be, but here is what I can recollect:

SAR - Sysout Archival Retrieval.
-- Original product of Goal Systems Inc (circa 1988+)?
-- Legent acquired Goal Systems, renamed product (1994+)?
-- CAI Computer Associates Int. acquired Legent (1997+)? - Just like almost everything else!

SAR - a software product - It is used for storing Sysouts (or Reports) online in a compressed proprietary database. It archives older reports to tape. It saves mucho paper (hence a paper reduction tool).

In its latest reincarnation (product renamed), it is now called CA-VIEW and has some features that cost $ as options.

Anyway, there is a companion product called PC-SAR. This will let you download reports to a PC.

I have written in-house Rexx/JCL that will extract (from tapes) these reports and zip them. I then FTP them to my PC and can be unzipped and burned to CDs. It requires some 3390?s disk space to accomplish these tasks. CA also has a product that will let you extract report directly off of tape. Again it costs $$?s.
The reports can be viewed using a Windows program called ?V - The file Viewer?.

Pelad. Can I get more information on the REXX/JCL you had to create to extract from tape?
Right now, I am emailing the reports one at a time to myself and saving them to the server. And then I delete them.
Thanks for your time
