Hello..

I have some 15 PDSs to be backuped. I need the same attributes(DCB, etc.) of the original PDS to be copied for the new backup PDS even at backend.

It would be helpful if its an Utility( like IEBCOPY, IDCAMS).

Use DFDSS COPY which will copy the datasets contents and attributes exactly.

e.g.
Code:
//STEP001 EXEC PGM=ADRDSSU
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSIN       DD * 
COPY ALLE ALLD(*) NMC NSC TGTA(SRC) SHR TOL(ENQF) OPT(4) -
   DS INC( -
               input.pds1 -
               input.pds2 -
               input.pds3 -
               )) -
  RENAMEU( -
               (input.pds1 -
                output.pds1 ) -
               (input.pds2 -
                 output.pds2 ) -
               (input.pds3 -
                output.pds3 ) -
               )
Code'd

Suggest you read the IBM Utilities manual and do not forget to look at ADRDSSU. (note re ADRDSSU: Pete got there ahead of me by a few seconds!)

Hello and welcome to the forum,

When you create this backup, make sure it can be restored (tio other dataset names) and used.

Often people create a new backup process and do not make sure that everything is usable. Merely checking for a "successful" run is NOT enough.
