Hi,



We use DFDSS to backup our database files to tape. We are thinking of
also backing up to disk as well for our DRP. What would the DCB
information be for a disk backup using DFDSS?



Thanks

"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
