Issue/Introduction

Moving the Endevor MCF files to SMS managed volumes.  The SMS default options are to use dataset compression and extended addressing (allow multiple volumes) for VSAM files.

Can the MCF files be setup to use dataset compression and extended addressing when moving these files to SMS managed volumes?

Environment

Release : 18.0  18.1

Component : Endevor Software Change Manager

Resolution

Extended Addressability (>4GB) is supported by Endevor only for regular KSDS VSAM files like the element catalog, MCF and package file.
   Note:  The ACMROOT and ACMXREF files are linear VSAM and not KSDS and therefore are not Extended Addressability eligible.
 
MCF files can not run in compress mode.   Compressing the MCF files will result in U0001 or S878 abends and VSI0603E error:
                   VSI0603E UNABLE TO EXPAND INDEX LEVELS
