Reply with quote

Could u please say if there is any utility like LISTDSI,DSINFO or SYSDSN to get the information about a DASD volume(s)?
Information like free Exts, free tracks, Logical free cylinders and the device type.

In some of the LPARs we have Quickref installed, so the below step gives a report about the volumes,

Code:
 //JS10    EXEC PGM=QWIKREF1,
 //             REGION=0K,
 //             PARM='S=ABC*'
 //STEPLIB   DD DSN=XXXX.QUICKREF.R700.QWILINK,DISP=SHR
 //QWPRINT   DD DSN=output.Ps.file,DISP=OLD
 //*


Output report:

Code:
olume  Mount  Device  Free   Free    Free  Lrg Free LgFree DASD   VTOC  SMS   
Serial  Attr    Type   Exts  Tracks   Cyls   #Tracks #Cyls  Nmbr   Ind   Ind   
 (01)   (02)    (03)   (04)   (05)    (06)    (07)    (08)  (09)   (10)  (11) 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ABC000 STORAGE 3390      13    14831    983     8171    544 7D55   Yes   No   
ABC001 STORAGE 3390       9    14496    964    11445    763 7C35   Yes   No   
ABC002 STORAGE 3390       4    14602    972    14346    956 7E71   Yes   No   
ABC003 STORAGE 3390       4    15020    999    13726    915 7F0E   Yes   No   
ABC004 PRIVATE 3390     247    15940    997    11256    750 7E31   Yes   No   
****************************** BOTTOM OF LIST ********************************


But in some LPARs we don't have quickref, So planning for an alternative.
I guess this can be done by using DCOLLECT, but if an utility like LISTDSI is already available, then please let me know.

Thanks,

DCOLLECT does it. Ask nicely because I think I may have a job to do that.

Another option may be to use ISMF. You might need to talk to your storage people as well, as they may well already have the info you desire.

ISMF can also be run in Batch using Naviquest for which a Users Guide is available on the IBM website.
