z/OS does not have the concept of owner of a data set. You may be able to find out who allocated the data set (but not always), but unless the site standards give you owner information in the data set name, there's really no way to know this. Unix System Services files are quite different but they don't support PDS so I assume you're not asking about USS files.

I guess it depends on the context of ownership.

The person / job that created the dataset.
The data owner responsible for allowing access to data. (Assumes a correctly set up security dept.) icon_rolleyes.gif
The data owner who gets billed for using storage media.

Hello,

And this is very often managed by naming standards that allocate datasets by business unit - typically by a high level qualifier of the dataset name.

SMF and/or RACF contain that kind of info.

The LISTCAT output gives the date created. If you have the SMF data for that date, you can find out who (which TSO user id or batch job) created the data set. This is not an "owner" but merely who created the data set.

The LC line command converts all uppercase characters on a line or range of lines to lowercase

psriv20- LC should be site specific, it does not work at my shop and probably on many other.
