Hi,
Can anyone tell me how to add a volume at an existing dataset? Please let me know if it is possible at all or we have to redefine the dataset allover again.
It is a sequential dataset. While trying to repro into it the job is abending with SB37(dataset full). So is there any way to add a volume to this dataset. (The o/p dataset is already created ).

Thanks,
Arnab

Arnab,

I don't think there is a way to add volumes to the existing dataset. You need to create another dataset with more space. Anyone please correct me, if i am wrong.

Thanks
Agni.

Thanks..!

Murali,

I searched the forum for Sb37.. I didnot find answer to my question.. I need to know whether it is possible to add a volume to an existing (cataloged) dataset? If so then do I specify VOL=() along with the DSN name. The dataset is being used as DISP=SHR.

Thanks again..

regards,
Arnab

Thanks a ton Agni and Murali. I got my answer...
"override the secondary space parameter of a dataset by addiing the space parameter to an already existing dataset. "

Arnab

Arnab,

Reason for SB37-04

Quote:
04 During end-of-volume processing, one of the following occurred:

1. For an output data set, all space was used on the current
volume and no more volumes were specified.

2. The system had to demount a volume in order to mount the
next volume of the data set. It was unable to demount the
volume for one of the following reasons:

a. The volume was permanently resident
b. The volume was reserved
c. Another job had data sets allocated on the volume
d. There were open data sets on the volume for the failing
task.


I guess Multi-Vol is required.
