Table 5-1 in the next section provides the names of the dba/m Database Manager tables. Managing dba/m Database Manager Subvolumes and Files dba/m Database Manager uses the following subvolumes in the installation volume and GENUS subvolumes in $SYSTEM: • $SYSTEM.GENUS. Contains dba/m Database Manager configuration information shown in one file named CONFIG. • GENBAT. Contains the edit files for every batch. The edit files contain the SQLCI/IN <SQLEDT file> or SQLCOMP/IN commands generated by the GSQLBAT process, depending on the type of batch. The edit-file name is the same as the batch number assigned on the client when the batch is created. dba/m Database Manager V7.1 Installation and Operations Manual – 540155-001 27
  31. 31. • GENCOLL. Contains edit-type files, which have the output from SQLCI or SQLCOMP, depending on the type of batch. The contents of the files are displayed on the Results screen. The edit-file name is the same as the batch number. • GENCAT. Contains the SQL catalog tables for the GENCAT catalog. • GENDB. Contains the files listed in Table 5-1. • GENEDT. Contains the edit file for SQLCI-type batches. The edit files contain SQLDDL commands generated by the GSQLBAT process. The edit-file name is the same as the batch number. • GENOBY.
