I am trying to add code to the ASR member that will accept a 'specific volume request' by systems programmers and storage admins but cannot find any good examples. Can someone help me.
Joseph, I've moved this into the CA Mainframe Storage community, where Allocate is covered.
Kathy_Mander -- can you help with this question? Or someone on the team?
Joseph, you are looking for a CA Allocate replacement to BMC Mainview's DASDPOOL rule list parameter setting SUPVOL=NO, right? That means, if SUPVOL=NO is specified, the specific volume request is honored, and the data set is not assigned to a pool.
Please check the CA Allocate variable &ALLVOL for any volser passed from JCL. The ALLVOL variable contains the list of volume serial numbers specified by the allocation requestor. So the following ASR coding could be used: IF ... AND &ALLVOL NE '' THEN ... bypass setting the SG ... or set POOLSUB = 'N'
