Hello,

I want to know that how can I protect my PDS member from editing. Is there any TSO or ISPF command which can do it?

NO, but if you speak with your security admin team to tell tham that you need extra protection for this highly sensitive data, I am sure that they will be more than willing to accomodate you.

Unless of course you just want to stop your peers from accessing your library, which may or may not be contrary to company policy, they will probably send you away with a flea in your ear.

Or create your personal PDSs with your RACF ID as HLQ.

Anuj, some shops have a security policy where all members of a group, e.g. prod support, have read access to all other user libraries within the same group.

The reasoning was that if someone is off longterm then the peers can take over without having to invoke security procedures to gain access to the work that the whole group is responsible for anyway.

at my shop such DSNs are no longer available the moment ID is "removed from the file".

Site standards vary. We leave the files on disk until the lead analyst for the group has verified none of them are needed, then we delete them.
