Doesn't "Volume serial . . . : IPN975 + " indicates it is a multivolume datasets

I thought it did.

Maybe there isn't a second volume available that can accomodate your primary space allocation.

What about using tape ?

Hi,

Probably we can not comment on this. "what does it mean" would differ shop to shop. Usually, system completion code B37 is accompanied by message IEC030I. Refer to the explanation of message IEC030I for complete information about the task that was ended and for an explanation of the return code (rc in the message text) in register 15.

Try with the earlier suggesions - VOL=(,,,n) or Tape, if problem still perssists, please post back the SYSOUT of the failed JOB.

Unlikely this is standard IBM nomenclature for multivolume . I would go with expat on this with th e limited info available

Yeah, very limited !!!

Looking at the dataset I would hazard a guess that it has been treated by the ILM / Space management software at the shop for extent reduction.

Again a guess given above, but this is a preallocated dataset (why on earth do people still do this ?), please, let the OS choose the best volume at any given time for read/write performance.

Also we are not informed if the dataset is being written to or modded to.

We do not know how many volumes are in the storage group. If the dataset must reside on DASD rather than tape I can only suggest using a space allocation of something like (500,200) to get a fighting chance of being able to satisfy the primary on second and subsequent volumes. In addition I would also use VOL=(,,,10) to allow up to 10 volumes for the allocation.

One can only hope that the OP will get back with his/her resolution.

Hi,

just like to add 1 thing, the primary allocation is only allocated on first volume, once the dataset writes to the second volume it's the secondary space parameter that is used.

Thanks for all above response,

Ans 1: Dataset is on DASD
Ans 2: Dataset has disp=old so it is written not modded
Ans 3. I dont know how many volumes are there in a storage group. And i dont know also how to find that

for " but this is a preallocated dataset (why on earth do people still do this ?), please, let the OS choose the best volume at any given time for read/write performance"

How can this be done

By deleting the dataset before the creating step and then using DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE) in the step that creates it.

That way the least utilised channels / volumes get to do the work which helps balance usage.
