Issue/Introduction

How to query different CA DISK (DMS) FILES from an ISPF menu.
How can this be done?

Environment

Release : 

Component : CA Disk Backup and Restore

Resolution

Such REXX sample permits to setup an ISPF environment settings for on Disk FILES. Creating one per FILES data set permits then by using a main DISK Panel to access separately each FILES.
 
The provided sample is based on a Datacom FILES data set.
If not using such Datacom FILES, just remove the corresponding names or settings : LOAD2 and LOAD3 everywhere.

So, once DMSSET is run with such SYSIN:
//SYSIN DD *
SET FILES=DISKR125.FILES,
PARMS=DISKR125.CCUWPARM,ALTFILES,ALTPARMS

ALTPARMS and ALTFILES activates the support of several Parmlib and FILES.

Create a main Panel entry pointing to different REXX which will contains the FILES and Parmlib to use for each query to perform.
See attached the second file showing how it can be coded.

DISKF1 is the REXX name to query the first FILES data set name
DISKF2 is the REXX name to query the second FILES data set name and so on.
