(Doc ID 2309496.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 11, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 11.2.1.0.1 to 12.2.0.1.0 [Release 11.2 to 12.2]
IBM z/OS on System z

Symptoms

We changed Golden Gate connection type from RRSAF to CAF. We see the mgr,, extract, replicat using the CAF threads. However a RRSAF thread connection to DB2 from Golden Gate can be seen and be doing active/archive log reads.

Question : What is this thread and why isn't it running as CAF?

Following changes were made to change from RRSAF to CAF:
1) Changed MVSATTACHTYPE=RRSAF to MVSATTACHTYPE=CAF

2) In extract .prm files added DBOPTIONS NOCATALOGCONNECT
