Hi Samedesh,

I think you can give "I" command to view the required details of the PDS.
Use 3.4 option and give "I" in front the PDS name. You will get the required information.

Hope this helps.
Please correct me in case i am wrong somewhere.

Thanks
Saurabh

Hi samedesh,
Even in DSLIST (3.4) panel, after getting the dataset if u press pF11 information regarding the dataset is being shown. There u will be able to see the creation date itself. icon_lol.gif

Hi samedesh and saurabh

If we give either S or I then the outcome will not show the time of creation.

Can any body explain how can we get time of creation?

Hi Murali,
The link u referred is having the information that a system maintainance people (SMF) can do! But will it be achieved by a simple program or by some utility? As many of us can not communicate our system people how is it possible to do that?

Correct me if I am wrong icon_biggrin.gif

Hello,

All of the activity on your system is captured in the SMF records. If you have SAS available, you can probably find what you want with a bit of SAS code - look in the forums, i believe this has been posted.

Many organizations have jobs already set up for use in determining when things happened. Someone in your group/team/management can talk with your system support people. Your storage management people may be able to help as well.

You can very easily use SORT to extract the fields from SMF 15, and then REXX will give you everything you need.
