No, there isn't.

Once the dataset has been created, the only way that I'm aware of to find the creator is by using the SMF records.

I think it is type 61 that you want, which records the creation of catalog entries, so just as long as the person created the dataset with DISP=(,CATLG,...... you should be OK.

Another question seen a lot on these forums. I'm curious where people are getting the false concept that datasets have owners.

Back in the pre SMS days it was a nightmare sometimes trying to find out who "owned" which datasets and could they be deleted, but thankfully SMS helped enforce reasonable standards, and HSM actioned them.

Unless it is a non SMS environment, or with extremely lax standards I can't really see a reason for knowing who created what or when, just migrate it off to tape and let it expire naturally.

Hello,

UNIX files have 3 sets of permissions for "owner", "group", and "other".

In many Windows environments, the person who creates a file is listed as the "owner".
