Disk Backup and Restore - MVS

Issue/Introduction

To avoid many messages that tell in job log that the file can't be processed because the file is a multivolume dataset not primary part like:

ADSDM673 2144 ATTEMPT TO PROCESS OTHER THAN FIRST PORTION OF MULTI-VOLUME DATA SET                                                 

ADSDM673 2144 DSN = KJDD.OPTIM.EPSPR02T.XF1 IS PART 5 OF A MULTI-VOLUME DATA SET                                                   

ADSST011*0387 KJDD.OPTIM.EPSPR02T.XF1 ON HOMT0A BYPASSED, REASON: PREVIOUSLY NOTED ERRORS FOR MULTI-VOL DATASET

the user code VOLSEQNO,EQ,1 in the CRITERIA statement.

It is possible to have a specific parameter to use in this case ?

 

Environment

Release : 12.5

Component : CA Disk Backup and Restore

Resolution

Criteria in DSCL are used to select or exclude data sets to pass to the action command. 

The action command has further checks that may decide the data set can’t be processed. 

Using VOLSEQNO will eliminate those multi-volume segments that can’t be processed at a much higher level using less CPU.  

Since commands like Backup and Report are mixed, CA DISK issue messages from Backup so that customers can see why the data set was bypassed but reported on in the Report.  

The SYSOUTEX should be used to suppress the messages customer doesn’t want to see.  

 

Two ideas have been opened in the communities :

  1. Request a Sysparm for DSCL Criteria (see this IDEA in Communities) 
  2. Request a Sysparm for Backup/Archive (see this IDEA in Communities)
