Hi,

I have a requirement to get the list of volumes that start with say KTM***.(Only the volume names will do, similar to the below thread)
http://www.ibmmainframes.com/about10296.html

Could you please share your thoughts pls.

I tried the quick reference and it has the exact data which I require.
Is there anyway to get this data into a PS automatically through a BATCH REXX?.

Code:
Volume  Mount  Device  Free   Free 
Serial  Attr    Type   Exts  Tracks
 (01)   (02)    (03)   (04)   (05) 
------------------------------------
KTMP50 PRIVATE 3390       6   141735
KTMP51 PRIVATE 3390       5   149489
KTMP52 PRIVATE 3390       7   148108
KTMP53 PRIVATE 3390      10   133695
KTMP54 PRIVATE 3390      13   149309
KTMP55 PRIVATE 3390       6   149504
KTMP56 PRIVATE 3390       8   149355
KTMP57 PRIVATE 3390       8   141240

Went into the QW PROC,
the QW proc was using datasets like,

Code:
OEML.QUICKREF.DATABASE
OEML.QUICKREF.KEYFILE
OEML.QUICKREF.QWILINK
OEML.QUICKREF.QWIMSG 
OEML.QUICKREF.QWIPNL 
OEML.QUICKREF.QWITBL 


But cannot make out what they are doing with it.

Also I don't have access to IDCAMS DCOLLECT as it is restricted to Storage Management Collegues.

Any thoughts will be helpful.

Thanks,

Hi,

I did some more digging with my "expert colleague Sai" and we were able to spot the JCL icon_biggrin.gif from QuickREF.

Code:
//XK89DASD  JOB 1,'CW PROD',MSGCLASS=Y,CLASS=4,         
//             RESTART=*                               
//JS10    EXEC PGM=QWIKREF1,                           
//             REGION=0K,                               
//             PARM='S=KTM*'                           
//STEPLIB   DD DSN=OEML.QUICKREF.R700.QWILINK,DISP=SHR 
//QWPRINT   DD DSN=XK89.DATASET,DISP=OLD 



Thanks,
