Hello,

Please provide more information.

Keep in mind that while your question is completely clear to you, it is not to all who read it.

This may be why there have been no replies.

The DUMP is an option in the PGM ADRDSSU(DFDSS).
Lets say I have two JOBS A & B and a VSAM file 'CALENDAR FILE'.
Job A open Calendar file for dumping into a tape dataset.
At the same moment JOB B opens the Calendar file in Read mode.
I find that the shareoption of the calendar file is defined as (1,3) (multi-reader), but still the JOB B fails due to file contention issue ( Since JOB A holds the file for Dumping)
Is there any specific reason for that ?
