Hi i am writing the backup procedures to backup the production data. I am using the utility ADRDSSU to take the incremental and full backup. In the procedure there is one optional parameter LOGINDYnam. What will happen If i am not used this options. Also please may I know what are the options we must to use in the backup process?
The z/OS 1.8 version of the DF/DSS manual lists 49 options for the ADRDSSU DUMP command. The manual explains them all quite well. I recommend if you're writing ADRDSSU dump jobs that you familiarize yourself with the command options.
We cannot provide you specific options to use since many of them are going to be site specific and we don't know your site. Your question would be better posed to your site storage management or system support groups. Furthermore, selecting some options, such as LOGINDYNAM, may or may not be required depending on your other parameters -- if you have input DD statements already pointing to your input files, you won't need LOGINDYNAM. If you don't point to the input files, then you may need LOGINDYNAM -- but we cannot tell you that.
Furthermore, the options vary depending on whether you are doing physical or logical backups -- again something we cannot tell from what you provided.
i am using the logical dump options. we are using several storage group for different data sets.But backup process in single job. As I am going to backup the production datasets just I want to ensure don’t want to miss any single datasets.Below are the JCL which i have used in my proc.
