Is there a way( command or report) to check which sysmods have been RESTOREd from a given zone?
I have tried LIST, REPORT SYSMOD commands. The REPORT SYSMOD command can tell which sysmods are APPLYd and not ACCEPTd but i want to know which sysmods are RESTOREd.

Any help is appreciated.
Regards,

I cannot think of any way to do this -- once you do a RESTORE, SMP/E reflects the status before you did the APPLY. How would SMP/E be able to detect that a RESTORE had been done? And the manual specifically states
Quote:
21.7.5 Global zone SYSMOD entries

When a SYSMOD is successfully restored and the NOREJECT indicator in the OPTIONS entry in use is off, the global zone SYSMOD entry and the SMPPTS MCS entries are deleted along with any SMPTLIB data sets associated with that SYSMOD.

Thank you Robert.
I just thought that like everything else SMP/E might keep a record of this as well !

@Enrico, SMPLOG is something owned by the user and DD DUMMY is not an uncommon practice. What i was looking for is if SMP/E itself somehow tracks this.

@Pete, I am not sure i understand what you meant by restoring previous versions of datasets. Can you please explain?

Regards,
Madhaviy

Have you not come across the concept of back-up/restore? Talk to your support people, somewhere there are "copies" made of your data so that if something gets screwed it needn't be terminal.

I think the final answer is no, SMP/E does not track data from RESTORE commands -- that's what backup and restore procedures are for.
