Hello,

Is there a way to copy a DS Member to multiple users at one time?

Thanks

I'm not sure that answers my question. I'm quite new at this.

I am doing Master the Mainframe and have a specific user ID. I have a member that I want to share with all my friends - I would love to copy it int0 all of their personal datasets at one time.

I have all of their user ID's - is this possible?

You should consider that the security product may prevent you from updating someone else's data sets. (at least, it should)

It is more simpler if you tell your friends where the member is and let them copy it. You need to give your friends READ permission to your data set.

Yeah, I know this is for a class project but this is something to consider.

My answer : depends on what your course is trying to teach you !

For example rather than batch are you working with TSO/ISPF ?
Then TRANSMIT (friend1, friend2,friend3) DA(my.pds) MEMBER(party) is another way to "send" the member although each friend has to initiate a RECEIVE.

Then there is ISPF 3.3 with the security caveat already described.

 INMX020I Nickname 'FRIEND1' was not found in any names dataset.  It will be ignored.

I suggest using a shared XMIT DSN for distribution.
Code:
TSO XMIT N1.<your_Id> DA(<my_pds>) MEM(<member_name>) OUTDS('<shared_hlq>.COOL.XMI')

Your friends can receive the package using:
Code:
TSO RECEIVE INDS('<shared_hlq>.COOL.XMI')

Then you can use eventually a shared dasd and copy the member to that dasd.
