Issue/Introduction

Hello,

Is there a way to define a member alias with PDSMAN?

 

Environment

Release : 7.7

Component :PDSMAN 

Resolution

1 - TSO Command Processor

The next step is in the panel put the dsname of the PDS to have a new ALIAS created:

Library Name       ===> 'your dsname'

Next you will see a LINE EDITOR with PDSMAN at the top.

enter the following without quotes  'AL'

It should then ask you for the MEMBER NAME

enter the MEMBER NAME and hit enter

You will then get the message to Enter the ALIAS name, put the ALIAS name in and hit enter

Your alias will then be defined.

Batch process to add multiple AKIAS entries
