Dear all, this query is related to TurnOver(Change Management System & Version control system) on AS/400.
I Want to know who has created a "Distributable Turnover" Form on a development AS/400 machine.
PLEASE TAKE SOME TIME TO GO THROUGH THIS MAIL COMPLETELY BEFORE ANSWERING. ...THANKS
just to give a brief background......I belong to the Software Distribution & Release Management team. we handle deliveries & releases of Development work
that has been done by the "Development Team", consisting of programmers/developers, who develop AS/400 Software components/objects.
Our AS/400 - Network is as follows:-
1) The developers create the TurnOver forms & add all required programs/objects to it.(This is at 01-Level - Dev Library)
2) They test & promote this form to next level to UIT library(This is at 30-Level).
3) The Developers do testing here, sign-off & send this form to us(This will be still at 30-Level).
4) We create a 94-Level(Non-distributable) form by copying this (30-Level) form & run it.
------ Till here it is done in Development machine ---------
5) The above 94-Level(Non-distributable) form gets automatically distributed to one more machine called REPOSITORY machine. we run this form.
6) If it is RAN-OK then we create a 96-Level(distributable) form on REPOSITORY machine, from where we actually
synchronise the software on all machines in the network, so that all the machines in the network are in sync with the latest
components. Also one copy gets distributed to the Development machine also.(there are around 12 AS/400 machines belonging to different countries)
------ Till here it is done in REPOSITORY machine ---------
**** SYNCHRONISATION is nothing but distribution of the software(i.e. TurnOver form) on all machines in the network.
Now here comes the actual issue.....
A 96-level "Distributable Turnover" form has been created in Development machine, but the programmer says he has not created it.(as it should not be here; it
should only be available here in Dev machine only after synchronisation, which has not yet happened).
He says Please don’t go by the “Programmer Name”, as Developer name/Task creator name is shown in programmer name eventhough he has not created it.
is there any way to find out who has created it? Iam 100% sure that I have not created it(as far as i know only me, the programmer & other Onsite guys have the access to TurnOver)
Will there be any Logs/system-logs for this in TurnOver/System?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
