Hi,

Is it possible to increase the directory blocks of the USER.CLIST dataset?

TSOID.USER.CLIST is the dataset which is created automatically by the system.
I wanted to increase the directory blocks of the dataset, It is not allowing me to either rename or delete the dataset.
Is there any other way to do that?

Thanks in Advance,
Anu

  1. Go to 3.2 in ISPF...
  2. Type in the name of your USER.CLIST
  3. Hit ENTER to save the attributes.
  4. Select option 'A' to Allocate a new data set.
  5. Change the name to COPY.CLIST
  6. Adjust the values of primary & secondary allocations to suit your expectations.
  7. Change the type to 'LIBRARY'
    Code:
    1st extent blocks . : ?     
    Secondary blocks  . : ?     
    Data set name type  : LIBRARY
    (this will now be a PDSE and have NOLIMIT to the number of members (except their size).
  8. Go into 3.3 and copy all the members of USER.CLIST to COPY.CLIST.
  9. Exit ISPF.
  10. At the TSO READY prompt type...
    Code:
    DELETE USER.CLIST
    RENAME COPY.CLIST USER.CLIST
    LOGON userid
