Hi..
How to change the dataset attributes of a migrated dataset without recalling? When i do a "ALTER / TO(date)" on ISPF 3.4, it recalls the dataset first and then changes its attributes. I want to change the retention period without recalling the migrated dataset because its very large.

Thanks in advance.
Nick

You have a couple of choices:
1. Change the date before it migrates.
2. Live with the recall time. ALTER invokes IDCAMS, and IDCAMS won't change migrated data set data so it has to recall the data set.

Or of course you could zap the HSM CDS, but not something I'd recommend unless you really do know what you're doing 36_2_35.gif
