Reply with quote

Hi,

One of our job needs some 20 GDG's to be recovered. Right now we are doing HLIST BCDS LEVEL(GDG base) to get the latest version. Then we do a HRECOVER on the latest version obtained. This is very trouble some and a lengthy procedure as we need to do this for over 20 GDG's.

Is there any utility for recovering the latest version of GDG?

/RANT ON

When talking about GDS it is important to use the correct terminology, as both version and generation are both valid in terms of a GDS.

It is a well known fact that only one version of a GDS may exist at any one time, however, multiple generations may exist together.

Please learn and use the correct terminology when posting, as using the wrong term can cause confusion and possibly delay a resolution to your problem

/RANT OFF

Use IEFBR14

Code:

//RECALL   EXEC PGM=IEFBR14
//DD01     DD DSN=GDG base(0),DISP=SHR
.....
//DD20     DD DSN=GDG base(0),DISP=SHR


It may be worth a chat with your storage team to see why the zero GENERATION is getting migrated, and if possible to stop this.

Aaaaaaaaaaah, just re-read the thread and noticed RECOVER was specified, not RECALL.

What happens to the datasets ?
Why can you not recall rather than recover ?

Expat, don't you HRECOVER versions and HRECALL generations?

The confusion could begin when you need the correct version to recover the required generation icon_confused.gif

An old group of my cronies are still waiting for the implementation of the HDWIM feature/functionality. . .
