AcuXDBC 10.0 currently only creates version 6 GENESIS Files

0 Likes

Problem:

Using release 10.0 of AcuXDBC to generate a new system catalog, all the GENESIS_* files are created as VISION files of version 6.

This may create some troubles when the syscat is deployed to environments where older AcuXDBC drivers are already installed.

Resolution:

VISION version 6 is the new default for ACUCOBOL-GT file system in release 10.0.

Although the version of the newly generated files can be configured at run time (V_VERSION configuration variable), this cannot be done using AcuXDBC tools.

There would be some enhancement in the future, but for the moment the only way to have older AcuXDBC to work correctly with this kind of catalog is to rebuild the new GENESIS_* files.

i.e.: 

C:\>vutil32 -v
Micro Focus extend file utility version 10.0.0

C:\>vutil32 -rebuild -5 -a GENESIS_AUTHS
C:\>vutil32 -rebuild -5 -a GENESIS_COLUMNS
etc.
