We have a production application which appends few records to a PS dataset. Since the dataset was becoming full, We recently changed the dataset properties. The new output dataset now resides on multiple volumes, previously it used to exist on a single volume.

The problem we are facing is the job completes successfully, but records are not being appended to the new multivolume dataset. I infact checked the return code after PUT got executed. The return code from PUT is zero. When I changed the dataset to a single volume dataset, the records are being appended.

Any pointers on why this is happening would be of great help for us. Here are DCB declarations of our output dataset

Quote:
AUDIT DCB DSORG=PS,MACRF=PM,DDNAME=JOURNAL1

The dataset properties are as follows,
Quote:
Organization . . . : PS
Record format . . . : FB
Record length . . . : 239
Block size . . . . : 27963
1st extent cylinders: 108
Secondary cylinders : 500

Thanks

Pleasant morning Sir !

Times a go, i had nearly the same phenomena. We only altered the SMS-Parameters and had no look at the JCL. There was still the normal definition. DISP=(MOD)

We had to change this to DISP=(MOD,CATLG).

Even if the dataset is already catalog, this causes the entry of the new disks now used in the catalog.

Thanks for the response. We are in fact using Dynalloc for the output dataset, I will check the SVC 99 settings and check with Storage guys and update the results.
