Hi,

I have a tape dataset uncataloged, I can recover it by using following JCL but I don't have access to recover it, since it is a prod dataset. Is it possible to recover a uncataloged tape production dataset to a test dataset ?

Example DEV.XXXXX.G3897V00

Code:

//REPROCMD  EXEC PGM=IDCAMS,REGION=3M                 
//SYSPRINT  DD SYSOUT=*                               
//SYSOUT    DD SYSOUT=*                               
//SYSIN     DD *                                       
 DEFINE NONVSAM -                                     
    (NAME(PROD.XXXXX.G3897V00) - 
     DEVICETYPE(CART) -                               
     VOLUME(873256) -                                 
     NORECATALOG)                                     
/*                                                     


Regards,
Magesh

Use IEBGENER. Make sure you have READ access to the PROD qualifier.

Code:

//TAP2DASD EXEC PGM=IEBGENER                                     
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*                                           
//SYSUT1   DD  DSN=PROD.XXXXX.G3897V00,                           
//             DISP=SHR                                           
//SYSUT2   DD  DSN=DEV.XXXXX.X3897,                               
//             DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),UNIT=SYSDA,               
//             DCB=(*.TAP2DASD.SYSUT1),SPACE=(CYL,(100,100),RLSE),
//             VOL=(,,,50)                                       
//SYSIN    DD DUMMY                                               
//SYSUDUMP DD SYSOUT=*

Hi Ranjith, Thanks for the response, The below jcl works for cataloged dataset, Currently dataset set is uncataloged. Needs to be cataloged with different name.

Depending upon what you mean, possibly.

If you are wanting to copy an uncataloged tape data set to a cataloged disk file name, you can do that by specifying the UNIT and VOL=SER as well as DISP and DSN for the tape data set. If the tape is uncataloged, and has not been scratched, you must provide the data that usually comes from the catalog (that is, the type of tape drive to use and the serial number/name of the tape).

If you are wanting to catalog the tape with a different data set name, this is not generally possible since the tape label contains the data set name and if the catalog data set name does not match the tape label the data set will not be accessible (actually, IIRC the catalog attempt will fail).

And if the tape is a virtual tape, it may not be recoverable at all
