Our shop has never done a cleanup on the recon datasets, I could see logs from 1996. We are seeing overhead and decided to run cleanup, before we try on the actual test datasets we decided to copy the recon datasets to another vsam and run the cleanup process. I was able to get rid of most of the data by using command


However I do see 6 records with the message.


One of them is

15.345 10:41:32.765984 LISTING OF RECON
START = 98.278 03:03:38.900000 *
EARLIEST ALLOC TIME = 00.000 00:00:00.000000

When I checked the manuals it says there is some inconsistency on the recon datasets. I searched through the manuals to see how this can be fixed but I could not find out a direct or step by step solution for this.

could you please guide me through on how to deal with the DSP0179I?

Thanks in advance!
