Hi,

As a part of my assignment i am trying to take Dump of some datasets ans place that in a DASD.

Is that Possible with FDRABR (and my target is DASD only not tapes) ?

If FDRABR is not the exact utility to take dump of a dataset, Please suggest me what FDR utility to use?

Pgm FDRDSF is used for simple dataset backup and restore.

FDRABR is the archive/recall utility similar to DFSMS HSM and requires supporting data files (archive index, etc.)

Hi Bill,

Is there any manual or doc that has the description abt the FDR utilities?

I googled and I could not find any. It will be really useful if u share any links that u use to refer abt FDR

You can contact the vendor at http://www.fdr.com and get their copyrighted documentation -- as long as your site has a license for the software.

BOOKMANAGER DOCUMENTATION

Innovation user manuals are available in IBM BookManager format on CD-ROM. This CD-ROM also contains ADOBE PDF-format files of the user manuals so that you can print your own copy of the manuals on a PC- or network-connected laser printer.

One copy of this CD-ROM is available to each licensed installation at no additional charge. E-mail your request to Innovation for your copy of the CD-ROM sales@fdrinnovation.com.


You'd think that someone onsite who supports FDR would have that CD-ROM.

I agree, but having a CD rom there in onsite is of no use to me as of now.
A weblink or Doc will be useful.

Anyhow Thanks for the help

Unfortunately IDP only allow their documentation to be accessed by their clients.

Also because of copyright laws it may be illegal for someone else to send you a copy.

You will need to contact some one at your site and see if maybe there are (a) Hardcopies or (b) Online availability which you can access from your computer.

I suppose that you could allways try DFdss which has freely available documentation and is generally available with the DFSMS base product which is almost certainly installed on your mainframe.

Thanks Bill I have taken a Dump of a dataset using FDRDSF.
I have one more doubt here, I have 3 files A, B, C in three different volumes Vola, VolB, VolC resp. I want to dump these files into a single file. is that possible using FDRDSF?
or I have to use some other utility?

Hi,

it's a long long time ago since I used FDRDSF, but I'm sure that you can dump multiple files residing across different volumes.

The documentation will help if you get a copy.

You can use CATDSN= to identify the datasets from multiple volumes in a single dump.
