Issue/Introduction

Question:

Does the CA XCOM r12 XCOMHIST file support VSAM's Extended Format?

Answer:

Yes, the CA XCOM r12 XCOMHIST supports VSAM Extended Format. You would need to make sure you define the XCOMHIST cluster using the following statements and attributes:

EATTR(OPT) - Support extended attributes & optionally reside in the EAS
STORCLAS(class) - For SMS-managed data sets                         
DATACLAS(class) - The dataclass for both SMS and non-SMS data sets   
                                                                    
DEF CLUSTER (NAME(vsamhlq.XCOMHIST)       -                         
       KEYS(12 0)                                                          -                         
       EATTR(OPT)                                                       -                         
       STORCLAS(SCEAV)                                          -                         
       DATACLAS(EXTENDED)                                 -                         
       CYLINDERS(10 5)                                              -                         
       RECSZ(8080 8080)                                              -                         
       FSPC(0 0)                                                             -                         
       SHAREOPTIONS(2 3))                                       -                         
    DATA (NAME(vsamhlq.XCOMHIST.DATA)     -                         
       CISZ(8192))                                                         -                         
   INDEX (NAME(vsamhlq.XCOMHIST.INDEX))
 
Note: You must remove the VOLUME(volinfo) statement if using the existing DEFHIST member to create your XCOMHIST file.
 
Additional Information:
 
Fix RO89449 was created, which updates the current DEFHIST member to include the above.
