Datacom CADRE Community members,The Datacom development group is pleased to announce the general availability of VSAM Linear Datasets for Datacom/DB data area datasets as of April 18, 2022. (Support for index area datasets was previously delivered.)
This feature also enables the use of IBM Pervasive Encryption for both Datacom/DB index and data datasets.
For those datasets at blocksizes that are acceptable to VSAM, the Online Area Move facility can be used to migrate data – without an outage -- from existing BDAM (EXCP) to Linear VSAM (Media Manager) datasets. (For data datasets with other blocksizes, additional no-outage migration support will be provided in a subsequent delivery.)
Please see the PTF and Release Notes for VSAM Linear Dataset Support for Data Areas (LU04745) for additional information.
