Hi all, I'm trying to recreate an old user space with the next code:

QUSCRTUS(qname, "LSTOBJS ", 64000, "", "*EXCLUDE ", "Text decription ", "*YES ", &zero, "*USER " , 16 , optimum )


When I dump the old one there is a -extended data- section but that section does not exist in the dump of my new created user space.

EXTENDED DATA- 000000 40E84040 40404040 40404040 40404040 40404040 40404040 40404040 40404040 * Y 000020 40404040 40404040 40404040 4040 *


How can I obtain that section?

(I really hope that this post is readable .... the question section in my navigator is weird) (My concern is due to maybe I'm skipping some information of the old user space) Thanks!

    I'm trying to recreate an old user space with the next code:
    .
    What is that code referencing? If we can't see the actual prototype, we can't be sure what your code means. What are the definitions and values of your variables?
    .
    But it doesn't look as if you can do anything differently. None of the spaces I create today show an EXTENDED DATA section. Those include spaces that I set additional attributes for with the QUSCUSAT API and those that have been fully auto-extended by system list APIs. Maybe someone else will have direct info.
    .
    Any chance that the Change Object Description (QLICOBJD) API is used against the object at some point? Or that something like object auditing is set for it? Or that IFS commands are used for I/O against it?
    .

    I did not find any call to QLICOBJD , neither object auditing ... I did not find IFS calls either ... as you said the other parameters do not wite this -extended data- section ...

    The actions I asked about are possible kinds of things that might have happened manually or by 3rd-party products or other ways completely separate from the use of the user space. For example, someone might do a test install of some Security or Compliance product. A test run of the product could run through a list of libraries to retrieve ownership and authority in order to generate a sample report. . Now, that example shouldn't have the effect you're asking about. It's just an example of some external, unrelated process that touches objects on the system. And the point is that something like IFS processes can happen in many ways. . IFS activity is interesting for user spaces because a space can be accessed as a stream file. You can use the CPY command or EDTF to modify a space. I haven't seen either of those give your result, but I don't know all possible combinations. The use of SAV might set IFS-style backup attributes. . In short, I don't see anything that you can do differently. Your recreation seems to be appropriate. You might need to call the QUSCUSAT API for additional attributes, in case you need it to auto-size itself or other reasons. . IBM support seems to be your best place to go if you need an authoritative explanation. . Tom

    Thank you Tom ... Yes, it looks like there is not missing data... it looks that the use of the new one is correct as the old one.
