Hi all -

I have a situation like this.

I have a VSAM dataset this way.

AAA.BBB.CCC <<< Cluster
AAA.BBB.CCC.DATA <<< Data part
AAA.BBB.CCC.INDEX <<<Index part

Now someone deleted the cluster without deleting the Data and Index part. I am not sure how they did.

All i can see now is DATA and INDEX part. Whenever i try to delete the VSAM file through Fileaid - it says 'Cluster not existing'.

Someone please let me know how i can delete this data and index part ? Is this something to do with VTOC ?

Something I've had to do -- not much, but it does happen.

You may need to contact your site support group for assistance with some of the parameters required:
Code:
//SYS1 EXEC PGM=IDCAMS
//DD1 DD UNIT=SYSDA,VOL=SER=<volser>,DISP=OLD
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN  DD *
 DELETE AAA.BBB.CCC.DATA  VVR FILE(DD1) -
        CATALOG(user.catalog.dataset.was.in)

 DELETE AAA.BBB.CCC.INDEX VVR FILE(DD1) -
        CATALOG(user.catalog.dataset.was.in)
and if the DATA and INDEX components are on different packs, you'll need a different DD reference for each instead of both being on one as in this example.

Ok - Thanks - I just gave a try with VTOC options in file aid and it worked. With the base and index part - i created a new cluster AAA.BBB.DDD and was able to link this cluster to AAA.BBB.CCC.DATA and AAA.BBB.CCC.INDEX. I deleted the new cluster and it worked perfect! Thanks for all your responses.
