Issue/Introduction

Description:

One of the things that need to be done before really starting to install CA Mainframe Software Manager - MVS is the need of a zFS aggregate.

In this document is provided sample JCL to create such an aggregate.

Solution:

Please change the JCL according you jobcard, datasetname and other JCL requirements and submit to job to create a zFS aggregate.

//  Insert Jobcard 
//*          
//********************************************************************  
//* Allocate a zFS aggregate (actually a VSAM linear dataset with 8     
//* KB blocks).                                                         
//* Notes: - There are 6 8 KB per track -> 90 8 KB per cyl.             
//*        - When the total size of a file is greater than 4 GB         
//*          (extended format) the DFSMS DATACLASS must provide         
//*          extended addressability. Add DATACLASS(LSEXT).

//* Format the zFS as a compatibility mode aggregate. The zFS           
//* aggregate contains 1 zFS file system. The zFS file system has the
