Hi,

I am trying to find the meaning of different values of DSID (Dataset ID) field. Generally we see DSID has got values like 2, 3, 4 for JESMSGLG, JESJCL, JESSYSMSG respectively.

Are there any other values for DSID ? Specifically I want to know what DSID=001 signify ?

WHY do you want this information? Unless you are working on system internals, you are asking for a pretty much useless piece of data.

Hi,

One of my assembler program is specifically checking for DSID=001 in LIST.DBD command output. Hence I wanted to know the significance of this value. Its pretty much system related program.

Oops !!! I should have been more clear. Its one of the program I have came across while working on this shop.
This was written long back and not much documetation exist around it.

So my actual question is - What is the significance of DSID=001 ?

Hello,

It is the first queued JES dataset for the job.
(Corrected)

Suggest you clone this question program and when it reads DSID=001, show the data read (10 or 20 records).

If you do not recognize what is shown, post it here and someone will be able to clarify.

I would like to see some JES output with DSID info in it.
I cant remember seeing that in any JES output. But then i never
had to look at JES output because my jobs/programs/started tasks
always never had any problems (sic)

Hi Peter,

IIRC the dsid is not in the output itself, but rather the info shown on the output screen when a job is broken down by individual JES dataset id.
