A 'search' across ALL the pdses in your LPAR, might have given you the 'faster' result than waiting for someone to reply.

3.14 option of ISPF can be handy for this.

Yes its very easy to just use 3.14 option for your search.But i will add something that what if there is thousand of pds with different qualifiers names.Then this one also become too much mechanical i guess.Can anyone have some idea about some search job which will find it in tape volume

member is a term referring to a specific dataset oranization ( PDS/PDSE)
I doubt that You will ever find a correspondence between a member name and data stored on tape...

Using Your tape management system, or catalog listing, You might find all the info about datasets, but not about their content

are You completely clueless about this member name ???
some kind of naming convention
what kind of data it contains ( source-program,procedure,jcl)
it might help in reducing the pds to search

in the first post You asked about pds/pdse
afterwards You ask about tapes...
please make up Your mind

Hello,

If you know the member name and have some idea about when it was created or accessed, you might be able to find the dataset name from SMF data.

Two suggestions.

If you think the member is part of the system datasets that are allocated to your TSO session, you can enter TSO ISRDDN on the command line followed by MEMBER MEMNAME where MEMNAME is equal to the member you are seeking.

You can also go to TSO option 3.4 and display any PDS datasets that your are aware of (and have at least READ access to) and enter MEMBER MEMNAME on the command line. It will search all datasets in your 3.4 display for the member.

What are you going to do if you find multiple PDS that have the same member name?

We usually use M MEMNAME to search the members in a PDS.

when a member is found using the above command in 3.4 then the found member name would be displayed across all the PDS names (where the member is present)

But before using this, dont forget to 'recall' the migrated datasets.
