Hi,

Could any one pls help me, how to get the "Number of volumes allocated" details for the PS(multi volume).

In ISPF 3.4 option, the "Number of volumes allocated" is not displayed. When i need to type "i" and hit enter 2 time i get the detail about the "Number of volumes allocated". But it is very difficult to get the information like this there are many dataset which need to checked.

Is there any way(using JCL/rexx) to get the "Number of volumes allocated" for a multi volume PS.

I even tried using ISMF. since its completely new to me, I'm not able to get the information through ISMF panel also.

Try using the LISTCAT command. I think it should include the volumes where it is allocated.

Hi,

Try the DSINFO, type QW DSINFO to learn about it more.

I had a JCL which uses DSINFO, if I find it I will post it.
But this is the way to invoke it from REXX,
Code:
ISPEXEC  DSINFO DATASET(dsname)


this variable ZDSVTAB has the data

Code:

+---------------+-------------------------------------------+-----------+-----
| ZDSVTAB       | Volume table (contains all of the volume  | Character |  354
|               | names for a multivolume set)              |           |     
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
