Please use VOL-SER to find & delete it out.

Actually,this question was about a KSDS file.

Actual KSDS file is on a volume say for eg: xxxxxx,
Only the data component of the KSDS file is on a different volume say yyyyyy and is uncataloged.

How do I get rid of the duplicate one on yyyyyy. I wanted to try the following jcl:

//DD1 DD VOL=SER=DV000E,DISP=SHR,UNIT=DISK
//SYSIN DD *
DELETE **.KSDS.DATA -
VVR FILE(DD1) -
CATALOG(CATALOG.ICFUSER.USER4)

Please let me know if this works. What do I do incase of 'Duplicate Dataset name' failures in this case.Please advise.

Your JCL looks like mine, if yyyyyy is volume DV000E, except I specify the full component name (no asterisks).
