Once you have written an archiving activity to temporary storage, you can use the Move Archived Data to Permanent Storage option. If you choose an archiving activity that has not yet been written to temporary storage, a warning is issued.
This option will do several things not necessarily in the order listed here.
You can send to more than one permanent storage location without having to recreate the archiving activity. When the archived data is moved to permanent storage, every line contained in the temporary storage word processing field is simply read and then written to a sequential medium.
The status of your archiving activity after using this option is ARCHIVED (PERMANENT).
In the example below, the archiving activity is identified by file name, "CHANGE." It is going to be archived to the specified tape:
Select ARCHIVE OPTION: MOVE ARCHIVED DATA TO PERMANENT STORAGE Select ARCHIVAL ACTIVITY: CHANGE 3 CHANGE 08-30-92 ARCHIVED(TEMPORARY) SELECTOR:SMITH,J ARCHIVING NOTE: This option will 1) print an archive activity report to specified PRINTER DEVICE and 2) will move archive data to permanent storage to specified ARCHIVE STORAGE DEVICE. Select some type of SEQUENTIAL storage media, such as SDP, TAPE, or DISK FILE (HFS) for archival storage. PRINTER DEVICE: PRINTER ARCHIVE STORAGE DEVICE: MAGTAPE Parameter ("CAVL":0:2048) DO YOU WANT YOUR OUTPUT QUEUED? NO// YES Requested Start Time: NOW// ARCHIVE DEVICE LABEL: ISC6V3$MUA0:ARCHIVE;083092;3//
If the archive storage device is tape, an archive device label is generated for you, as depicted in the previous example. You can override this label by entering your own device label information.
If you select an archive storage device that is non-sequential, a warning is issued. You are given the option to continue the archiving process.
CAUTION: If you specify a device that can be overwritten (e.g., SDP) or that does not electronically store data (e.g., a printer), the data will be forever irretrievable.
Depending on what devices are selected, and whether queueing was requested for either device, different warnings will be issued informing the user of either steps he need to take or steps that the program will take as a result of the queueing request.
Here is an example of an archive activity report:
