Copy IBM/IDMS files

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Apr 18, 2008
I have a lot of IDMS files to copy (and rename) to other packs. I cannot
use FDR or DFDSS. So that leaves me with IEBGENER.

I have nothing against 'gener but I have to preallocate the files first
before I copy them. Is there a utility or something else to copy BDAM
files without preallocating them first? Of course this doesn't involve
GDG's.



Thanks.

Re: Copy IBM/IDMS files
"I don't understand why you cannot use DFDSS. It has the ability, both in its RESTORE and COPY parameters, to specify the RENUNC [Rename Unconditional] sub-parameter which permits you to COPY or RESTORE without pre-allocating files. The new files are allocated with the same attributes/characteristics as the original datasets.
