Shadow copying vs. shadow merging via lexical

I need to differentiate between if a shadow set is copying or merging in a DCL script.

Currently I'm using this to see if shadow copying is occuring:

f$getdvi("DSA100:","SHDW_COPIER_NODE")

But this returns the nodename if either merging or copying is happening on DSA100.

Is there a way to differentiate the two?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Shadow copying vs. shadow merging via lexical

Check out F$GETDVI's SHDW_CATCHUP_COPYING and SHDW_MERGE_COPYING arguments. (Table 4-4 @ http://h71000.www7.hp.com/DOC/731final/5423/5423pro_007.html is one place to do so).

Re: Shadow copying vs. shadow merging via lexical

Also, take a look at SHDW_MBR_MERGE_DONE and
SHDW_MBR_COPY_DONE. These probably first showed up on V8.2 (I can't remember when they were done), but have been unofficially backported to V7.3-2, assuming somewhat-recent
DCL and SYS kits for V7.3-2. The SYS kit is needed for the addition of the item code itself to the system service; the DCL kit is needed for the addition to lexical function.
