Issue/Introduction

Can I direct FMTDUMP DD to a DASD dataset, rather than SYSOUT Spool.  The reasoning being, it is better in a worst case scenario to fill a DASD FILE than to fill System Spool.

 

 

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Resolution

In my RUNSYSIN member I have the following specification:

 

    DD=FMTDUMP,DISP=SHR,DSN=AUCM0.CSNM.CSNM30.FMTDUMP  

 

When region was initialized, I did a  /alloc and the FMTDUMP shows up: 

FMTDUMP   SHR               AUCM0.CSNM.CSNM30.FMTDUMP   

 

The allocation of the DSN is:

 

Dataset Name ........... AUCM0.CSNM.CSNM30.FMTDUMP 

DDname ................. FMTDUMP                   

Member Name ............                           

Dataset Organisation ... PS                        

Dataset Record Format .. FBA

I did a ##FDUMP to get a FMTDUMP taken and that FMTDUMP dsn now contains a formatted dump.
