What do you want to know the volser for? Have you talked to your storage people?

Hedllo,

Why do you believe you need to get the volser(s). . . icon_confused.gif

If the datasets are cataloged, multiple 3.4 datasets lists, or LISTCATs, or an adrdssu/dfdss execution can show the volser(s).

If the datasedts are not cataloged, you will probably not be able to find the dasd volsers. If they are "tape" ask the tape storage management people. . .

Hi,

if they are disk datasets, search for LISTDSI & SYSVOLUME.

Perhaps if you explain why you need the volser, then perhaps a solution may be forthcoming.

Hello,

If you more clearly/completely explain what you want to accomplish (and not what you think will make it "easier"), someone may have a suggestion that will help.

Usually datasets that are cataloged in one environment are "visable" in another (i.e. prod/test). If the datasets are cataloged, why not just refer to them by dsn?

I am not sure what is meant by 'in one go'...

I think, no matter how you get the information, you will probably have process them one at a time in a loop.

If you have the authority to access the production files, it would seem "easier" to just use the DSNs as Dick has suggested.

If you don't have authority to access the production files, knowing the voume(s) upon which they reside is not going to help.

So, specifically, how do you think knowing the volume is going to help you? What is the problem with using the catalog?

When you create them, put them someplace where yo can find them later.

Hello,

If Vkp321 is unwilling to describe what requirement this is to meet, the topic may as well be locked. . .

I'll check back on Tuesday sometime and see if there is some usable info or if it should be locked.
