Hi all,

Hope, someone could help me on below query.

we use ADRDSSU to dump set of physical file into a GDG version.
But i have a PDS, which has the list of physical file name.

is there a way, using ADRDSSU utility to create GDG dump from a PDS file(which contains the list of files to be dump)


Thanks in advance for your help

looking for a exact syntax or guidance, where i can take a look

Use the FILTER option for INCLUDE.

PDS (Partitioned Data Set) cannot have "the list of physical file name".

The only entities which any PDS may have is - the list of (library) members. Each member has its own name (8 characters), and can be considered as a separate sequential data set.

Before you understand the fundamental terminology of computer architecture, it's not good idea asking others to do your job instead of you.

Just some advice. Before you put this scheme into production, make 100% certain you know how to restore at least one data set you have dumped from the dump you have created. Too many people think they have created backups and find they can't restore the data they think they have successfully dumped. ADRDSSU is rather unfriendly in this regard. Add a harmless data set to your list, dump it, delete it, and then restore it.

I assume that your PS dataset contains a list of datasets, one per record.
You really should look at the ADRDSSU DUMP FILTERDD command, but a simple solution could be something like this:
Code:
//B        EXEC PGM=ADRDSSU                               
//BACKUP   DD DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),DSN=SHARE.DS.DUMP(+1), 
//            UNIT=SYSALLDA,  VOL=SER=Z6SYS1,             
//            SPACE=(CYL,(50,50),RLSE)                     
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                     
//SYSIN    DD *                                           
 DUMP DATASET( -                                           
    INC(-                                                 
//         DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DSN.LIST.DS                     
//         DD *                                           
      ) ) -                                               
    ODD(BACKUP) SPHERE TOL(ENQF) SHR 

Note that the datatasets in the list must have at least one blank at the front and a blank and a dash at the end, i.e.
SYS1.PARMLIB -
You can have a maximum of 255 datasets in the list.
