    We are please to announce that we have delivered an enhancement that we hope will make IMS DBA's life who uses CA IMS Tools a bit easier.
    The One-Step Batch Reorg and Online Reorg functions of CA Database Organizer require creation and allocation of shadow data sets prior reorg function will be performed. This enhancement allows both functions to create and allocate shadow data sets, when not specified in the job. Data sets are created with the same parameters as the current database data sets, including storage, data and management classes. The new name is generated by appending '.N' to the current database data set name. This functionality is turned off by default. To enable it, please specify in ITKOPTS option HPODSCREATE=YES.
    This enhancement is available for our customers with the following PTFs: SO14918, SO14919, SO14920.
