How to track PDSE's having more than 1 Extent and reallocate them into just 1 Extent? Is there a cleaner way to do this?
Release: SMDI3900200-12.5-Disk-Backup and Restore-for z/OS Component:
The process to use with CA Disk is as follow: - Scan the disks in question looking for PDSE and EXTENTS GT 1 - Then ARCHIVE these - Then do a RESTORE command for each of these files that were just Archived so that CA-Disk will bring them back in just 1 Extent.
If you have Ca Vantage with Automation option, you can create a GOA script to perform this process automatically or get an email alert or send an alert.
