1. Create a backup of the VSAM cluster to a sequential (QSAM) dataset.

2. Delete the VSAM cluster.

3. Allocate a new VSAM cluster with the increased space parameters.

4. Copy the backup into the new VSAM cluster.

We used to use a VSAM utility called CA-Faver that could handle all of this easily.
