Resolution

The best way is to run a LISTD to populate your database using this SYSIN:
LISTD DSN=/,DUP, FIELDS=(ARCDT,ATIME,VOLNO,ARKEY,DSNAM)
Then from this output using a Rexx or whatever generate based on the specific request the RESTORE command with such SYSIN:
RESTORE $AUTORES,DSN=YOURDSN, TIMEDATE=21082017018

Optionally you can rename the restored data set using such SYSIN:
RESTORE $AUTORES,DSN=YOURDSN, TIMEDATE=21082017018,NEWNAME=Userid.RESTORE.TEST2018
