hy pratapreddy,

if you have not installed MVS/Qwickref at your site,
you can get this information with IDCAMS DCOLLECT
function. there you will get all sms-related information,
therefore read the Volume-Record which contains all
volumes on your system, offline and online.

Hi

You can use this command to see the list of volumes..

/d u,dasd

The above command will list all the available volumes in the mainframe DASD.

/d u,dasd,online

The above command will list the volumes which are in use in the mainframe DASD.

Note: You should have the sufficient privileges to give this command.

Hi

You can use DVOL command to list attributes for all the volumes.Use outtrap to route output of the command to dataset sothat you can browse back n forth.

Hi,

do we really need to reactivate posts that are nearly 3 years old ?

Do not post "it doesn't work". That merely wastes everyone's time. Suggest you post the actual problem (error message, abend, etc) so someone might be able to help.

Suggest you talk with the system support or security people to make sure you have the proper permissions as was mentioned prevously. The command posted is restricted to many people. . .

Usually, i'd say it was better to start a new topic rather than reply to an old inactive topic, but it is good to see when people do a bit research icon_smile.gif

Also, even though it's nearly 3 years old (I see Dick has acquired a different "elapsed time" calculator icon_lol.gif ), someone might have the same question somewhere down the road.

If you really want to view ALL the Online DASD then you need to issue a command using this syntax:

d u,dasd,online,,9999

where 9999 is the number of dasd ucb addresses that you expect to have online. otherwise the default is 16 devices which is definitely NOT ALL of your dasd.
