New DELETE-DATASET Parameter in CA Rapid Reorg

  • 1.  New DELETE-DATASET Parameter in CA Rapid Reorg

    Posted 02-12-2014 04:37 PM

    You can now delete preexisting temporary VSAM data sets at the beginning of a reorganization. The presence of temporary data sets from previous reorganizations can cause errors during the next reorganization, when CA Rapid Reorg attempts to rename and delete the current temporary data sets. Deleting the old data sets before the next reorganization prevents this problem.

    This functionality is enabled through the new PREVIEW parameter for the DELETE-DATASET keyword.

    Notes:

    • For more information about this parameter, see the CA Rapid Reorg User Guide.
    • This support was added in Version 16.0 as a post-GA PTF.
