Issue/Introduction

Our current CA Spool parmlib dataset is full with 16 extents. Is there any recommendation in compressing the dataset or creating a new dataset with more space.

Also please advise if can we create this file as a PDSE to avoid the issue in the future.

 

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA Spool

Resolution

Answering your questions:

1) You can use the normal IEBCOPY utility to compress the Spool parmlib dataset or create a new one. There is no specific recommendation.


Sample JCL to compress the ESFPARM PDS:


//COMPRES EXEC PGM=IEBCOPY,REGION=0M                      
//SYSPRINT DD  SYSOUT=*                                   
//SYSUT1   DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=SPOOL.CBQ4PARM
//SYSUT2   DD  DISP=SHR,DSN=SPOOL.CBQ4PARM
//SYSUT3   DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5))               
//SYSUT4   DD  UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(5,5))               
//SYSIN    DD  DUMMY                                      

2) Yes, you can use PDSE format.
