I dont think that it is possible, when I tried the same getting following error:
INVALID DATA SET NAME FORMAT IN DSN= OPERAND

What you can do, you can use multiple dataset names using multiplpe INDD parameters.

Friends, Am i right if not do correct me...

You can use the ADRDSSU util which allows you to dump or back-up DASD datasets onto sequential files on DASD or tape volumes. You can use INCLUDE or EXCLUDE statements to filter out the datasets you want backed up.

I believe ADRDSSU is available under DFDSS (Data Facility Data Set Services) for z/OS. But I may be wrong. Check with your site admin to confirm that this facility is available at your site.

I have attached a sample JCL for backing up/restoring datasets.

Hope this helps.
