Hi,

I have to recatalog a Non VSAM SMS dataset(PDS).
I am able to do it through IDCAMS utility.

Is it possible to recatalog through IEFBR14 utility ?
I have found that we can recatalog a nonvsam non sms dataset through IEFBR14.


Thanks.

I tried doing it using IEFBR14 in which I used DISP as (OLD,CATLG) and UNIT as SYSDA.
But I got JCL error as the Dataset is not cataloged.

Thanks

You would also have to specify the VOL=SER since the system does not know which volume the data set is on without a catalog entry.

In that case, you need to get with your site support group to find out what's going on and get assistance. Once possibility, for example, is that you're attempting to catalog a data set that does not have an alias defined in a user catalog for the high level qualifier -- in which case the system will attempt to catalog the data set in the master catalog. If your user id does not have update authority to the master catalog (most people at most sites do not), the catalog attempt would not work. There's other possibiltiies, too, so you really need someone at your site to look into what's going on.
