Synchronizing in read-only mode
A map in READ-ONLY mode prints the message "synchronizing" all the time.
Is this because READ-ONLY gives the same restrictions as a real
synchronizing or how should this be interpreted?
- The number of users (and maps) is normaly 3.
- Latest PTF was U426327
- ovtopofix has been used with no aftect regarding synchronization.
The "synchronizing" is a system-wide matter, resulting from an ovw call
to synchronize -- and, this synchronization occurs when a daemon issues
the call to synchronize. This happens (for example) when submaps are
being built. During synchronization, the symptom is the same to all
operators -- whether read/write or read/only makes no difference.
I assume that, based upon your answer, you are on three separate
terminals (you are not opening up two maps on the same terminal, for
example) -- I ask this, since I have not seen the problem on our systems;
but, our network is no doubt small compared to yours.
Development came back with:
We'll have to wait for U428927 to become available for
fixes to apars IX42653, IX41409 which are related to this
Development is working on this problem of
READ-ONLY maps and the 2 apars above fix part of the problems but
not sure if its fixes all of problem.
I will close this query as a defect-related problem. If you open a
RETAIN item, you will get notification of the above apars, etc. -- but,
if the customer is only asking about "why the synchronization is on all
the time".... tell him/her it should NOT be and development is working
on the problem.... and I will let you know offline if we get the PTF
before it is GA. I have told development that if they want a test-site
for the PTF you would be a good candidate¢
AIX "info" contains quite a bit of discussion on synchronization if
you/the customer wants to review that.
