Hi,

Could you please help me on this?..

I replaced a member in a library with another member by mistake. Now, I need that previous version of the same member before the replacement i.e., the orignal one.

Is there any way that it is possible by a Mainframe administrator could recall the replaced member.

We would like to know if it is possible or not. Because, we don't want to escalate this issue if it is not really possible at all.

Please provide your inputs.

Thanks.

no... anyhow You would need Your support help

if the dataset is a PDS, not PDSE, and the dataset has not been compressed
there are tools to resurrect dead members

the fastest way is to ask Your support for a restore of the whole PDS and copy the mistreated member

I'm probably too late, but suggest restoring the backup of the original to some other dataset name and then salvage the damaged member. . .

Hi,

i know a way to recover the whole dataset.

DFSMS will take auto backups before the dataset got updated.

please issue the below mentioned commands to recall old generations.

HLIST BCDS DSN ('your dataset name') it will gives the details of available backup generations.

HRECOVER 'your file name' GEN (001) NEWNAME to recover the old version.

if you recover it in to your new dataset might your old member also be there.

and its purely installation specific try it and let me know if its work.
