  • Page 16: Overview Of Hp P9000 For Business Continuity Manager Software, Why Use Business Continuity Manager

    1 Overview of HP P9000 for Business Continuity Manager Software This chapter describes the reasons for using Business Continuity Manager, as well as its features. It also explains example system features. It describes Business Continuity Manager system configurations, defines the terms used throughout this manual, and describes how Business Continuity Manager identifies and interacts with storage systems on different storage system models.

  • Page 17: Communication With Hp P9000 Command View Advanced Edition Suite Software

    Business Continuity Manager provides centralized management of HP P9000 mainframe replication products, regardless of where they reside on the storage system. This provides many business benefits including: Improved business resilience and confidence through frequent, non-disruptive disaster recovery. Robust disaster recovery and planned outage functions, which make for smooth operations and dramatically reducing recovery times.

  • Page 18: Products That Can Be Controlled By Business Continuity Manager

    Figure 1 Centralized management of Open-system and Mainframe-system Storage This centralized management of both open-system and mainframe-system storage can provide a number of advantages, including reduced operation times and quicker responses to failures. Products that can be controlled by Business Continuity Manager HP storage systems provide replication products such as Business Copy for Mainframe, Continuous Access Synchronous Mainframe, and Continuous Access Journal for Mainframe.

  • Page 19: Business Copy For Mainframe (bc Z), Continuous Access Synchronous For Mainframe (cnt Ac-s Z)

    A volume that contains the original data is called a primary volume (P-VOL). P-VOLs exist in storage systems that are directly connected to a host where Business Continuity Manager is installed. Remote storage systems (or in the case of Business Copy, duplicate volumes) are the copy destinations.

  • Page 20: Continuous Access Asynchronous For Mainframe (cnt Ac-a), Continuous Access Journal For Mainframe (cnt Ac-j Z)

    Continuous Access Asynchronous for Mainframe (Cnt Ac-A) Stores data and control information for each P-VOL in a sidefile, and performs and manages the remote copying of volumes independently (asynchronously) of the host I/O processes. Continuous Access Journal for Mainframe (Cnt Ac-J Z) Writes updated data and control information to the master journal on the primary site.

  • Page 21: Remote Volume Operations

    Remote volume operations A command device defined in Business Continuity Manager allows you to remotely create copy pairs, remotely operate volumes, and remotely monitor the status of volumes. This allows you to reduce the operational costs of remote locations. “Remote Volume Operation” (page 21) explains remote volume operation.

  • Page 22: Grouping To Simplify Volume Operations, Copy Groups

    Grouping to simplify volume operations Business Continuity Manager can group together copy pairs to improve the operability of managing replicas of large-scale systems that handle substantial amounts of data. Copy pairs can be grouped together and managed as a single entity. These group types are: Copy groups (see “Copy groups”...

  • Page 23: Consistency Groups

    Consistency groups A consistency group is a copy group recognized by a storage system. A consistency group updates the S-VOLs in the same order that data was put onto the P-VOLs. The data on an S-VOL is guaranteed to be identical to the data on a P-VOL at consistency times. Therefore, data at the secondary site can be used to recover the data at the primary site.

  • Page 24: Journal Groups

    Table 1 Methods to preserve consistency for each copy type (continued) Copy type Consistency group ID Consistency group ID Consistency preservation method specification method consistency group ID and sub consistency group ID are specified in the Copy Group Attributes panel in which the copy group attributes are defined.

  • Page 25: Open/mf Consistency Groups, Copy Group Containers

    Open/MF Consistency Groups When the Open/MF Consistency Preservation Function is used for Continuous Access Synchronous for Mainframe consistency groups, open-system copy groups and mainframe system copy groups within the same consistency group can be suspended at the same time, to preserve consistency between mainframe system copy groups and open-system copy groups within the same consistency group.

  • Page 26: Extended Consistency Groups

    pairs that have the same copy type. When an operation is performed on a CG group container, it is performed on all of the pairs included in the container. CAUTION: Because Business Continuity Manager actually sends instructions to the storage system for each of the C/T groups included in a copy group container, consistency of each included consistency group on the primary site and on the secondary site is preserved.

  • Page 27: Terminology By Copy Type, Data Center Configurations, Dc Configuration

    When an Extended C/T Group ID (EXCTG ID) is specified in the copy group container, the container is registered in the storage system as an EXCTG, and consistency between the journal groups in that CG container is preserved. Specifying an EXCTG ID in a CG container is explained in “Defining an EXCTG”...

    3DC Cascade Configuration This configuration performs remote copying from the primary site to a nearby intermediate site and a distant remote site. Continuous Access Synchronous for Mainframe is used from the primary site to the intermediate site, and Continuous Access Journal for Mainframe from the intermediate site to the secondary site.

  • Page 29: Dc Configuration With Hyperswap And Continuous Access Journal, X4 Configuration

    2DC Configuration with HyperSwap and Continuous Access Journal This configuration allows operation at the primary site and secondary site under a 2DC configuration to start immediately after a primary storage system failure or maintenance by using HyperSwap. Both the primary storage system and local storage system are placed at the primary site, and a PPRC copy pair for which HyperSwaps are enabled is used.

  • Page 30: X4x4 Cascade Configuration

    4x4x4 Cascade Configuration This configuration is a combination of a 4x4 configuration and a 3DC Cascade configuration. Between the primary site and the intermediate site, a Continuous Access Synchronous for Mainframe copy group is used. Between the intermediate site and the remote site, the Continuous Access Journal for Mainframe copy group that defined an extended consistency group (EXCTG) is used.

  • Page 31: X4x4 Multi-target Configuration

    4x4x4 Multi-Target Configuration This configuration is a combination of a 4x4 configuration and a 3DC Multi-Target configuration. Between the primary site and the local site, a Continuous Access Synchronous for Mainframe copy group is used. Between the primary site and the remote site, the Continuous Access Journal for Mainframe copy group that defined an extended consistency group (EXCTG) is used.

  • Page 49

    To define a 2DC configuration with HyperSwap and Continuous Access Journal for Mainframe, create a PPRC copy pair for which HyperSwaps are enabled. Next, in Business Continuity Manager, define that copy pair as a Continuous Access Synchronous for Mainframe copy pair with the HyperSwap attribute.

  • Page 50: The 4x4 Configuration

    Business Continuity Manager provides the following functions to detect a HyperSwap: The HyperSwap-completion message monitoring function that can monitor for the output of HyperSwap-completion messages. The Copy pair status monitoring function. Business Continuity Manager obtains the copy pair status after a HyperSwap as the SWAPPING status.

    If an error occurs when connecting to a log stream for reasons such as the log stream not being defined, the YKZ217E message (name=IXGCONN) is output to the console upon the first execution of a CLI command after logging on to TSO/E. If this happens, the Business Continuity Manager log data will not output while CLI commands are still being processed.

    Maximal block size of a log is 64,000 bytes. Since the maximum CTF is 60 KB (61,440 bytes), specify 64,000 bytes as the block size for extra capacity. STG_SIZE(stg_size) Specify 100 to 1,000 (400 KB to 4 MB) as the size of the staging dataset. Do not specify this parameter when using an SMS definition.

    LOWOFFLOAD LIKE MODEL DIAG Planning a DASD Log Dataset The system logger service assigns a VSAM linear dataset for the DASD log dataset and DASD staging dataset. For details, see the MVS Setting Up a Sysplex. Deleting a Log Stream The following is an example of using JCL to delete a log stream when the log dataset is full.

  • Page 562: Not Using System Logger Service

    To merge Business Continuity Manager log data that was generated by multiple operating systems in a SIMPLEX environment, you must output the log for each operating system to an external dataset, transfer the files to a computer, and then put the multiple files in chronological order. Not Using System Logger Service To obtain logs, use a DD statement to allocate two sequential log datasets to each job.

  • Page 563

    If neither the YKLOG01 DD nor YKLOG02 DD statement are specified, the YKZ261E message is output, and processing continues without any logs being obtained. If this happens, to obtain log data, you need to log on to TSO/E again, and specify the DD statements for YKLOG01 and YKLOG02.

    Business Continuity Manager Log Data Formats The log data format in Business Continuity Manager is defined as follows: The record size, severity level, record identifier, and capacity identity information are added in binary format to the beginning of each log record. Note that if the system logger service is being used, the time-stamp is added by the system logger service.

    Re-define the log stream. You can now log back on to TSO/E again and execute CLI commands. You cannot delete the log stream while CLI commands are executing. As a result, be sure to temporarily stop a CLI command execution to delete the log stream. If you cannot stop a CLI command execution, execute the FORCE IXGLOGR,ARM command to stop the system logger service, execute the S IXGLOGRS command to restart the system logger service, and then delete the log stream.
