what You mean expired??

You mean that the expiration date has already passed
or that the dataset got deleted

if it is simply the date, the dataset will still be there ( until somebody deletes it )

if it was deleted, talk to You storage support to find about
the standarss for backups and relative restores

Hi Senthil ,

I assume here U mean "Migrated"

1) If dataset is migrated/expired try to recall it with the command "HRECALL" or try to Browse(b) , the dataset wil be recalled .

2) If the U R not able to do at ur end try to reach out ur Storage Mgmnt , as may be the case that Volumes are not available .

3) If the dataset is deleted , then u must need to recreate it .

Let me know if it works for u . icon_biggrin.gif

Hello,

If the volume where it was created was backed up while the dataset was on the volume, your storage management people may be able to retrieve the file for you.

If the dataset expired, was scratched, and had no backup; it is gone.

If the file is created on work volume with UNIT=SYSDA in JCL , then it will be automatically deleted after 2 or 3 days.

If u want file permanenetly, then create on permanent volume.
In our shop we give UNIT=TSOPK.

This seems to be entirely shop specific, because I have used UNIT=SYSDA in many shops for permanent datasets.

Is your shop SMS managed ? If so, go talk to your storage people to get a basic understanding of how SMS is specifically set up for YOUR shop.
