Hi,

Please let me know if it is possible to know which Job/User created a IAM dataset. I tried LISTCAT, VTOC info, IAM info etc but all gives the create date and not the creater name.

Thanks,

Have a word with someone from
(a) Storage management
(b) Capacity and performance planning
(c) Sysprogs

To find out the names of the dumped SMF datasets, and use them. It can be dangerous to use the live datasets if you are not sure what you are doing.
