Hi All,

I am facing issue while alter the GDG limit ,which the GDG version exits.

The error was : IDCAMS: DATASET BASE NOT EMPTY XMMD01.XBBKCMI.GDG.BKUP.D04dec

Note:if the version not exists , we can increase the GDG limit
Code:

//XXXXXXXX JOB (XX,99,99,,RJE),'MMDCPS20',
//  MSGCLASS=V,MSGLEVEL=(1,1),REGION=4000K,
//  CLASS=P,NOTIFY=&SYSUID

//BLDG1    EXEC  PGM=IDCAMS
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN DD *
  ALTER XMMD01.XBBKCMI.GDG.BKUP.D04DEC LIMIT(5)

The code works fine for me

What was the error messages id's that were given - did you look them up
Post a listcat of the GDG base

And remember that you really do mean GENERATIONS and not versions

Also learn to use the code tags
Code:
[code] ... your stuff here.. [/code]

I have used ALTER to change GDG limits many times (with AND without generations associated with the GDG base) -- so the problem is something at your site. You should contact your site support group for assistance.

I do not know because you did not show the JCL or the error. However, JCL is a JCL checker and it needs to be bang up-to-date if you are to believe everything it says.

As Nic has said, these JCL scanners do need to be improved and maintained better.

Besides, call me old fashioned, but if you really do rely on a JCL scanner then perhaps you're in the wrong trade

You have discovered, the hard way, that JCK does not handle all JCL -- so that should be a warning to you about the limitations of JCK.

Actually, the "error" is not in the JCL, but in the IDCAMS control card. Therefore, Saravanan-kun:
  1. Learn the difference between JCL and control cards.
  2. If a JCL checker indicates that a control card is in error, assume until proven otherwise that it is wrong.
