Re: Using DFDSS to backup to DASD

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Jul 4, 2007
I specify space only in the JCL and leave the DCB info to DFDSS.

//DUMP EXEC PGM=ADRDSSU
//*
//SAVE DD DSN=CHRIS.DFDSS.DUMP.DISK,
// DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),
// SPACE=(CYL,(1,1),RLSE)
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
DUMP DATASET(INC(CHRIS.ASMLIST,CHRIS.LNKLIST)) -
ODD(SAVE) -
COMPRESS -
SHR
/*

After execution the DCB of the output dataset on a 3390M3 shows as:

DATA SET NAME VOLSER ALLOC USED EXT ORG RECFM BLKSIZE LRECL
CHRIS.DFDSS.DUMP.DISK TSO005 15 2 1 PS U 27998 0
