Go Up to Server Management Options

The session recording feature records changes to the server. The Session Recording feature lets you create a script file that you can execute as a batch at another time.

The session recording feature automates repetitive tasks that you routinely perform by issuing the commands in the collected script with a single command. Session recording lets you:

  • Streamline time consuming, repetitive tasks.
  • Execute multiple actions with from a single file.
  • Automate a complex series of tasks by creating a batch file.
  • Distribute automated tasks to multiple users with the session recording file.

The Session Recording feature is not available for operations that are destructive to your server. These operations include:

  • Schema Migration
  • Data Load
  • ISQL and DDL Editors

When you activate session recording, these operations are grayed out and not available.

You can also use the session recording feature for Tivoli Integration. Schema change management sessions are recorded to instruction files, which are read by Tivoli Management Systems. Tivoli subsequently transports these to multiple managed endpoints for local execution.
