Issue/Introduction

Introduction: 

PDSMAN Initialization Control Statements usually reside as a member in a system or user parameter library, though they can also be located in a concatenation of members or a sequential data set. The default name for the Initialization Control Statements member is PDSMINIT.

 

Question: 

We would like to implement a new version of PDSMINIT. The only changes would be to add additional libraries with the $UPDATE LIB= parameter. No other PDSMINIT parameters would change. 

When the F PDSMAN,NEWRULES command is issued, will this impact jobs that have allocated other PDS libraries already covered by existing $UPDATE LIB= parameters? 

 

Answer: 

If the new $UPDATE rules specify fully qualified data set names and those names can not match any existing $UPDATE rule, then the NEWRULES command can not impact any existing library already covered by existing $UPDATE rules.
