While trying to journal a file, I receive the following error:
Damage prevents object from being journaled.
Cause: A damaged object previously journaled to this journal prevents journaling from being started for object in library type *QDDS. If the object is an integrated file system object, then the path is *N and the file ID is X'00000000000000000000000000000000'. If *N or hex zero appears for any fields, then this information does not apply.
Recovery: If journaling cannot be started because of a damaged object, use the RCLSTG command to reclaim storage before trying to start journaling the object again.
Is there a way to correct this other than using the RCLSTG command?
Ramesh, this is a tough one, but I think you will need to do a RCLSTG.
