I'm using the TSO ALLOCATE command to allocate an output file and the file needs to have extra volumes as it is huge. I've given it to be

ALLOC FI(FOUT) DA(DSN) RECFM(F B) BLKSIZE(0)
DSORG(PS) SPACE(3000,3000) LRECL(800) CYLINDERS NEW

as its output is going to be huge it doesnt write out the file fully, gives messge like 'EXPECTED ANOTHER VOLUME' how to rectify this.

Suggestions please.

Don't you use SMS for your storage needs? Any suggestions from your storage administrators?

Or you could always invoke IDCAMS to ALTER ADDVOL after the allocation

Or read the allocate command documentation to allocate multiple volumes

Or as Kevin suggest, go talk to the storage gurus
