Usage notes

The DUMPG command copies the CCAGRP file to a sequential data set that is located on either magnetic tape or a direct access device. CCAGRP contains all permanent group definitions established by the system manager.

DUMPG backs up the CCAGRP file so that the dumped version is available in case of a system or media failure. The dumped version can subsequently be restored using the RESTOREG command.

If an external security interface is active, the user ID issuing the command is checked for the proper data set usage authorization. If the authorization check fails, the attempt is logged as a security violation and the command is not executed.

With an active security interface, you must have WRITE, ALTER, or UPDATE privileges to use the DUMPG command with sequential data sets. For more information, refer to Security interfaces.

When it processes DUMPG, Model 204 ends any update unit in progress and begins a non-backoutable update unit.
