  • 1.  Convert PDS LOADLIBS TO PDSE LOADLIBS

    Posted 02-16-2016 09:52 AM

    I have the request to convert from PDS loadlibs
    to PDSE loadlibs

    But I have some doubts:

     

    1) The BSTXCOPY is the utility recommended,
    isn't it?

    2) Which one is the recommended code in the
    exec statment?

      
    //COPYALL EXEC PGM=BSTXCOPY or

      
    //COPYALL EXEC PGM=NDVRC1,PARM=BSTXCOPY

    4) Can i have mixed libraries, PDS and PDSE,
    for a same ENVIRONMENT in difherent stages?

    3) Members can be copied from PDS  to PDSE and viceversa with move Endevor
    action?

    BSTCOPY is strickly a job run in a processor.  BSTXCOPY was created to allow the job to be run outside of Endevor.

    I would reccomend that is you can, run the job outside of Endevor.  you cannot run BSTCOPY outside of Endevor and

    BSTXCOPY cannot run in a processor.  the jcl for BSTXCOPY can be found in prefix.qual.CSIQJCL,

     

    if you have any problems you can give me a call (508-628-8971) or open a case in support.online.

    Here are additional answers to your other questions:

     

    2) Which one is the recommended code in the exec statment?

      
    //COPYALL EXEC PGM=BSTXCOPY or

      
    //COPYALL EXEC PGM=NDVRC1,PARM=BSTXCOPY

     

    Use the second one.

    If you invoke BSTXCOPY directly, it produces some Informational error messages C1G0700I and C1G0701I

     

    Here is a link to a TEC doc that explains more --

    4) Can i have mixed libraries, PDS and PDSE, for a same ENVIRONMENT in difherent stages?

    Yes,  you can.

     

    3) Members can be copied from PDS  to PDSE and viceversa with move Endevor action?

    Yes, they can

    TEAM, thanks for your updates, here is a new one:

     

    I'm coding BSTXCOPY as follows:

    //COPY01   EXEC PGM=BSTXCOPY,COND=(0,LT,DELE01)                        
    //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                                 
    //IND01    DD DSN=LNDV.NOPUT.UNITTEST.B.RLS.B.LOADLIB,DISP=SHR         
    //OUT01    DD DSN=LNDV.UTIL.UNITTEST.B.RLS.B.LOADLIB.V2NEW,            
    //            LIKE=LNDV.NOPUT.UNITTEST.B.RLS.B.LOADLIB,                
    //            DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),DSNTYPE=LIBRARY                  
    //SYSIN    DD *                                                        
       COPY INDD=((IND01,R)),OUTDD=OUT01                                   

     

    ******June, I have coded also BSTXCOPY as NDVRC1 parm *******

     

    but I'm getting the following message

    C1X0511I     COPY INDD=((IND01,R)),OUTDD=OUT01                                 
    C1X0511I  IND01   = LNDV.NOPUT.UNITTEST.B.RLS.B.LOADLIB                        
    C1X0511I  OUT01   = LNDV.UTIL.UNITTEST.B.RLS.B.LOADLIB.V2NEW                   
    C1X0507E  THE BLKSIZE OF THE INPUT DATASET IS > THE BLKSIZE OF THE OUTPUT DATASE

    These are the input and output data sets attributes

    Enter "/" to select action                                              Dsorg  Recfm  Lrecl  Blksz
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    LNDV.NOPUT.UNITTEST.B.RLS.B.LOADLIB                        PO     U          0  23200
    LNDV.UTIL.UNITTEST.B.RLS.B.LOADLIB.V2NEW              PO-E  U          0      0

     

    Does the LIKE parameter work out whit BSTXCOPY utility?
    Why the blksize output dataset is equal zero?
    Am I missing something?

     

    KIND REGARDS

    I would always go half track blocking at 27998 but there is enough performance information on the internet that 6144 is optimal for batch libraries and 13030 is best for CICS.


    You have to decide whether optimum blocking on the disk is important over the way that storage is read in.


    I can only suggest you do your own research and consult with your application teams.

    Hi Team, CA SUPPORT TEAM has help me to figure out the previous topic, now I ask for your help if you know a recommendation for setting blksize for loadlibs with Lrecl = 0.

     

    Hope you can help me

    Kind Regards

    Hi Yaoctzin,

     

    From z/OS DFSMS Using Data Sets guide, IBM said The significance of the block size keyword (BLKSIZE) is slightly different from a PDS.
    You can get more detail in the Chapter 'Structure of a PDSE' from this guide.

    I suggest you the following IBM doc;
    Block Size (BLKSIZE)   : www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSLTBW_1.13.0/com.ibm.zos.r13.idad400/blksz.htm%23blksz* where there is a link to  'Structure of a PDSE'
    PDSE Logical Block Size: www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSLTBW_2.1.0/com.ibm.zos.v2r1.idad400/d4290.htm

    Also, you can ask you DFSMS administrator about the ACS routine that are already or could be implemented. Anyway, he should be able to give you some guideline.

     

    Regards,
    Ollivier
