Reply with quote

Hi,

I have a requirement to migrate the data sets to tape using REXX tool.
Requirement in Detail:-
-------------------------
The input will be a PS file or a PDS member, which will have the list of datasets that needs to migrated. The tool will read the input file and migrate all the datasets mentioned in it. The dataset names can be given with qualifiers also. In case of qualifier, all the datasets under the qualifier should be migrated.

In case of error, (already in tapes or dataset not found) a message should be displayed with the list of datasets.

Because failing miserably in Rexx is immeasurably cooler than doing so in COBOL, PL/I, or HLASM icon_razz.gif

all too often i attempt to elicit humor thru sarcasm,
but usually fall short due to my anger, mean-ness, and down rigtht lack of good manners.

Akatsukami,
thank you for reminding me how to do it correctly.

best post from anyone in a long while.

Curious why you need to do this in the first place? Is it just to archive a bunch of old data or are you trying to force early migration of the data for some reason? Are they SMS managed or not?

DFHSM will do this for you automatically based on the SMS datasets Mgmtclas if it has the correct Primary Days and/or ML1Days values, assuming the datasets are in a Storgrp that has Auto and/or Interval migration enabled.

For NONSMS it depends on how the ADDVOL and other SETSYS parameters in DFHSM are set up.

Suggest talking to your Storage team
