Create a message queue to receive journal related messages
Create a journal receiver
Create a journal
Execute the appropriate STRJRN* command for each object you wish to journal:
STRJRNAP Start Journal Access Path (Not recommended, use SMAPP
STRJRNOBJ Start Journal Object
STRJRNPF Start Journal Physical File
Note: You can journal MANY objects to a single journal.What part of this process do you think will take so long? A simple CLP could be written to select the entire physical file in a library, for example, and then execute the STRJRNPF against each of them. I do this against my production data library and the whole "start journaling" process only takes a few minutes.
