  • 1.  Retention Limit / Maximum

    Posted 08-25-2021 09:59 AM
    Could RDS processing be enhanced to supply an optional RETPDMAX=days parm so that a specified max retention is enforced but if a shorter retention is specified in JCL it will honor it and if no retention is specified the default is assigned? Using SMS MC Retention Limit is cumbersome as each would need to be maintained on IBM TS7700 hardware.

    This is an interesting idea, but needs to be placed on the IDEA site so that it can be voted on by other clients.
