Re: ODS-2 to ODS-5 convert

The simple answer:

 

  $ set volume /structure_level=5  <your_device_name_here>

 

This is a one way setting, you can't change your device from ODS-5 back to ODS-2.  If you need to return, you'll need to restore the last ODS-2 backup created.  

 

For system help see:  

$ help set volume/structure 

 

You might also consider upgrading to a supported version of OpenVMS.  The migration to 7.3-2 brings you to a supported level with some performance enhancements.   

 

 

 

 

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? Reach me at first_name + "." + last_name at sysmanager net
