Hi,
can anyone name some standard utilities for dataset backups to DASD volumes? And also is there any procedure for taking backups into mirrored DASD volumes?

Yes,
I guess IDCAMS is the standard VSAM utility to back up data set to and from DASD volumes.

Thank you for the suggestion. But is there anything specific for getting mirrored copies on DASD volumes.
