The  Change  QDFTJRN  Data Area  command  creates  and/or  changes  the
QDFTJRN data  area in a named  library.  The QDFTJRN data  area is used
by  the system to  automatically start journaling  for objects intended
for remote  journaling.    Using CHGQDFTJRN  simplifies  entering  data
into the required data area.

A typical command would be:

             CHGQDFTJRN    LIB(xxx)

If the  QDFTJRN *DTAARA object does  not exist in the  named library, a
prompt  appears to name the journal and  journal library that should be
used for  all newly  created objects  in the  library.   The data  area
would be created.

An option  exists to  cause journaling  of the  QDFTJRN *DTAARA to  the
named  journal.   This is  an  important function  because if  a remote
system is switched to  and new objects added,  it is critical that  the
new objects be journaled.

If the data  area already exists,  a prompt appears for  the CHGQDFTJR2
command with  the existing values  from the data area.   CHGQDFTJR2 may
only be used as a sub function of CHGQDFTJRN.

Options  exist to specify *FILE, *DTAARA,  or *DTAQ objects and whether
journaling should be started  for all functions, or just  create, move,
or restore operations.

CHGQDFTJRN escape messages you can monitor for

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

CHGQDFTJRN Command parameters                         *CMD

   LIB           The  library  where  the   QDFTJRN  data  area  should
                 exist.   If  it does  not exist,  it will  be created.
                 Prompts will appear  for the  journal and whether  the
                 QDFTJRN  data area  should be  journaled  to the  same

                 After  creating   the  data  area  or  if  it  exists,
                 prompts  will   appear  with   the  existing   options
                 specified in the data area.

CHGQDFTJR2 Command parameters                         *CMD

   DTAARALIB     The library where the QDFTJRN data area exists.

   JRN           The  fully qualified  name of  the  journal where  the
                 QDFTJRN data  area will be journaled to.   The library
                 defaults  to  *LIBL.   A  specific library  or *CURLIB
                 may be entered.

   OBJTYPE       A list of object types  and an option for the  type of
                 processing that will cause a journal entry.

                 The  object  type  may   be  *ALL,  *FILE,  *DTAQ,  or

                 The   option  for  the  type   of  processing  may  be
                 *ALLOPR, *CREATE, *MOVE, or *RESTORE.


You must have *CHANGE authority to the journal to be used.


The following TAA Tools must be on your system:

     CHKOBJ3         Check object 3
     PMTOPR          Prompt operator
     RSNLSTMSG       Resend last message
     RTVOBJJRNA      Retrieve object journal attributes
     SNDCOMPMSG      Send completion message
     SNDESCINF       Send escape information
     SNDESCMSG       Send escape message


None, the tool is ready to use.
