Issue/Introduction

Question: 

Can DSNTYPE=LARGE be used in the MERGE Procedure for DSNIIN and DSNIOUT to prevent x37 Abends?

Answer: 

Due to the current method of using POINT and NOTES for DSNIIN/DSNIOUT, these Data Sets can not be allocated with DSNTYPE=LARGE.

Additional Information:

DSNIIN/DSNIOUT can be allocated as PSE MULTI-STRIPE Files to allow for Multi-Volume Data Sets.

Please contact CA Technologies support for CA Disk if you have further questions or need assistance.
