Issue/Introduction

I have a subfile in the FILES data set that I want to remove.

Environment

Release : 12.5

Component : CA Disk Backup and Restore

Resolution

Your question is about DMSPOOLS [this is being used as an example for this description]

This subfile is not used when you have no tape pools defined, which is the norm.

It is a "no harm, no foul" thing to leave it there.

If you really want to get rid of it, you would do this:

a. Do an UNLOAD of all subfiles except DMSPOOLS with the UNLOAD proc. Use command:

UNLOAD FILES=xxx,xxx,xxx... Specify the name of each and every subfile that you want to KEEP !

b. Change FILEDEFN in the CA Disk Parmlib to remove DMSPOOLS entry.

c. Do a Reload of the Unloaded subfiles. The proper command to use for RELOAD is this:

RELOAD ALL,FORMAT,FREESP=20

  

Additional Information

NOTE....

This process can be done with any subfile, EXCEPT DSNINDEX and ARCHVOLS.

All other subfiles are independent of each other, so removing any one

can be done if that function is no longer used.
