As you may have already surmised, neither ZERODIR nor COMPRESS are valid IEBCOPY commands. It seems that you are running an IEBCOPY replacement program, such as PDSFAST or PDSMAN. Check with the documentation for your specific product.

Thanks Siva and Prandip,

I have already seen that link Siva, I was a bit confused as to whether that will initilaize the dataset or completely erase/delete it.

ZERODIR OUTDD=DDNAME - Erase directory

Thanks,
Uday.
