Hi All,

In our environment some of the data sets are not deleted even though their non usage days matching with their Management class

Ex :
Vsam dataset : REPT.PPPP.TST18221
Created on : 2005/03/19
Last referred on : 2018/08/09
Code:

CLUSTER ------- REPT.PPPP.TST18221                 
     IN-CAT --- USER.TEST.CATALOG                                 
     HISTORY                                                         
       DATASET-OWNER-----(NULL)     CREATION--------2005.078         
       RELEASE----------------2     EXPIRATION------0000.000         
     SMSDATA                                                         
       STORAGECLASS ---STANDARD     MANAGEMENTCLASS-TSTFILES         
       DATACLASS ---------KEYED     LBACKUP ---0000.000.0000


TSTFILES Management class attributes as below -

Code:

Expiration Attributes                       
                                           
  Expire after Days Non-usage  . : 35       
  Expire after Date/Days . . . . : NOLIMIT 
  Retention Limit  . . . . . . . : 0   


Dataset suppose to be deleted after 35 days of Non-usage.. But that dint happen..

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

DO NOT post the same question multiple times. You won't get any better or faster answers, and you get a lot of readers upset with you for wasting their time.

Have you talked to your site storage administration group? If not, that should be your FIRST point of contact.

Is HSM looking at the data set? How can you tell? Actual data set deletion will be done by HSM, so problems with it could prevent the management class from being effective.

It's usually because the MGMTCLAS says it needs a backup but it doesn't have one, so it doesn't get deleted.

Easily found out by looking through the HSM logs and then looking up the relevant message number. You may even be able to read the log as input and analyse it on a regular basis.
