Hi, All

This is the situation I meet:

Client sent me a dump file (using ADRDSSU to dump), it contains many datasets, as the dumpe file may be very large, and I don't want to restore all files in it out if there's any other way to get full dataset name list in it.

Is there any way to get full dataset name list in it other than restore all files out?

thanks.

very strange that after reading the adrdssu manual You did not realize that
PARM='TYPRUN=NORUN' does exactly that,
simulates a run telling what it would have done and listing the datasets involved!

Do a full restore using PARM='TYPRUN=NORUN'. Time consuming, but will give a list.

I did have some SAS code that would list off the datasets on a dump dataset, but it only works for DASD dump datasets.

thanks all for your kindly help.

hi, expat
what's SAS means? Can the code directly run on MF? or needs other vendor uitility support?

SAS is an independent software vendor package. It is not installed on every mainframe, but it is extremely useful as the vendor has written it to allow access to any type of data possible. It can access sequential files, partitioned data sets, VSAM files, Unix System Services, dumps -- you name it.
