How to enlarge CA 7 BROWSE Dataset.
Release : 11.3
Component : CA-7
Steps on how to allocate a larger CA 7 Browse Dataset:
(1)..Allocate a new and larger browse dataset (eg test.ca7.browse.new)
(2)..No need to format the new browse dataset.
(3)..Stop CA 7
(4)..Copy my current browse dataset into the .new dataset above.
(5)..Rename my current browse dataset to .OLD (test.ca7.browse to test.ca7.browse.old) and the new dataset to current
(test.ca7.browse.new to test.ca7.browse)
(6)..Restart CA 7 with ERST.
If you copy the current Browse dataset to the new one, no other formatting should be needed. If you want to create a new empty Browse dataset, then the format step needs to be done. See your CA7 installed job CA07N030, writes a dummy record to it as shown below...
//FBROWSE EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
//SYSIN DD DUMMY
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT1 DD *
//SYSUT2 DD DISP=OLD,DSN=APCDAL.CA7R113.CA71.BROWSE
Also note that a DMPQ/MOVQ is not required, recommend just an ERST Startup of CA 7.
