easiest way, especially since it is small
  • ISPF Option 3.2 define new pds with larger allocation and more directory blocks (figure 4 members per dir block)
  • ISPF Option 3.3 Move all pds members from old to new
  • ISPF Option 3.2 Delete old pds
  • ISPF Option 3.2 Rename new pds to name of old (and now) deleted pds

Thanks Dick Brenholtz

But is there anyway in TSO to change attributes of Existing PDS? If yes please let me know.

It largely depends on what you need to change -- and the tools available at your shop. If your PDS ran out of directory space, there's a couple of programs on the CBT tape to fix this but using IBM utilities you have to create a new PDS, copy everything over, delete the old, and rename the new to the old name.

Creating your PDS as a PDSE means it can expand directory blocks automatically. Allocate as TYPE=LIBRARY in ISPF 3.2.
