Hi All,
I have faced very surprizing result when I am trying to copy a PS into another using IEBCOPY. Input dataset has LRECL of 400 and it is FB. Corresponding JCL is like -

Code:

//JSTEP002 EXEC PGM=IEBCOPY                                 
//         ACCT='SERIES 2 : COPIES THE PROD VERSION TO TEST'
//INPUT1   DD DSN=SYSPGRP.MBRF.TPRLSCMJ.LSW525.T0J,DISP=SHR
//OUTPUT1  DD DSN=SYSPGRP.GPL1.TPRLSCMJ.LSW525.T0J,
//         DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                 
//         SPACE=(CYL,(10,5),RLSE),                 
//         DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=400,BLKSIZE=0)       
//SYSIN DD *                       
    COPY INDD=INPUT1,OUTDD=OUTPUT1
/*


But this step is giving the following error in the sysprint -
Code:

I want to know why this kind of situation happens and I am not being able to copy the dataset?

Please help me out ...

IEBCOPY is for PO datasets, not PS datasets.

Use IEBGENER or DFSORT

Don't mind Expat! I think we can also use IEBCOPY for PS! Is it not? Then please tell me one thing - I just want to copy 7 input files into 7 output files. E.g. - I am having input files - A,B,C,D,E,F and G and I want copy A to A1, B to B1, C to C1, D to D1, E to E1, F to F1 and G to G1. I don't want to overlay data of any two input file into one output file.
This task I want to do in a single JCL step. Is it possible to do that? I am looking for your opinion.

Regards,

Amitava

No you can not use IEBCOPY for a PS dataset.

You can do all 7 files in one step using ICETOOL / ICEGENER.

You could also set up a PROC to perform the copy and execute it 7 times within the same job.

Amitava,

Refer the following link -

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/zoslnctr/v1r7/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.zsysprog.doc/zsysprog_65.html

Also please post the JCL if you succesfully copy PS to PS using IEBCOPY. It will be learning experience for us.

Hey Expat, can you please provide me some link to look into ICETOOL or ICEGENER (If it does not come under licensed product version). Actually I have not used ICETOOL or ICEGENER before.

Looking for your help...

Regards,

Amitava

Here are the links to ICETOOL which if I recall contains ICEGENER, and for IEBGENER too.

Oh, Thanks murmohk1 and Expat; thanks a lot! I had already checked IEBGENER to use for my purpose but I am not getting what should be my control statement then - I mean what will be my SYSIN card will be?

And the bad news is my mainframe does not have DFSORT and it is using SYSNCORT so I cann't use ICETOOL then. I tried but the job abended naturally.

Amitava

Hi,

Try using SYNCTOOL & let us know the sysout messages if it abends or doesn't serve your purpose.

By the way, for SYNCSORT sites, if you code ICETOOL in your JOBs it behaves as an alias & in back-end SYNCTOOL is invoked. So, if you'll provide the JCL & SYSOUT messages we can come up with some better suggestions.
