Issue/Introduction

Question:

After a successful conversion from DFSMShsm to CA Disk, how can I remove any orphaned DSNINDEX entries that have been left over. 

 

Answer:

Run a LISTD VOL=(B00001,M00001) to review the orphaned DSNINDEX entries that have been left over. 

If the conversion is complete and no tape has been missed or forgotten, 

then the following IXMAINT PURGE can be used to delete the orphaned records: 

 

//STEP01 EXEC IXMAINT 

//SMSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* 

//SYSPARMS DD * 

SYSPARMSS 

UNCATARCN 

UNCATPSUX 

'TMSCTLEX        ' <= SYSPARM FOLLOWED BY 8 BLANKS 

'DSNDLPEX        ' <= SYSPARM FOLLOWED BY 8 BLANKS 

'RESCRNEX        ' <= SYSPARM FOLLOWED BY 8 BLANKS 

//SYSIN DD * 

  PURGE SIMULATE,VOL=(B00001,M00001)   <== Check with SIMULATE at first, then run in live mode
