Discussion:
HLQ dataset Volume

When a dataset is created using a id of an HLQ, how does it know which disk volume to create it on without specifying the volume?

The reason I ask, I have a test system using Hercules and Z/OS 1.1. On this system I created a new disk volume (LEIDS1), a new user catalog (CATALOG.USERWK) , a new user called JS51, and an alias to JS51 pointing to the a user catalog.

All works fine except when I create a dataset using the HLQ JS51 I want it to go to a this new volume (LEIDS1) I created. Instead when I create a dataset like JS51.TEST1 it goes to a VOLUME called JASYS volume. SMS is generally not being used on this system. So what in the Z/OS setup (without SMS) tells it to create the dataset on JASYS ? I want to change it to point to LEIDS1.


Any pointers

Good question. I wanted to do the same thing awhile ago.

I *think* mvs / z/os just searches / assigns based on most available
free space, but that's just a wild guess :)

AFAIK (and probably / maybe stand to be corrected), you have to
specify the VOL either in your JCL or by filling in the 'Volume
Serial' field on the ISRUAASE Allocate New Data
Set" or VOLUME param using the ALLOC command.

Yes...as Mike said in the jcl
'VOLUME=SER=(serial number of)LEIDS1' while specifying the other unit and
disp parms will be working fine.

Yes, I should have mention If i used the field VOLUME SERIAL using 3.2 (ISRUAASE) and in JCL as describe in the previous reply it works fine but I have it working now,
Post by vitoriarest ***@aol.com [hercules-390]
The volumes are either storage or private.
I change the VATLST00 parm, LEIDS1 from 0,1,3390 to 0,0,3390 so it mounts as storage.



VIEW ADCD.Z110S.PARMLIB(VATLST00) - 01.04

Command ===>

****** ***************************** Top of Data ********

000001 VATDEF IPLUSE(PRIVATE),SYSUSE(PRIVATE)

000002 JASYS1,0,0,3390 ,Y

000003 LEIDS1,0,0,3390 ,N ADDED AS STORAGE VOLUME

****** **************************** Bottom of Data ******



So now if I use the 3.2 and allocate a new dataset without specifying any VOLUME SERIAL info it creates the dataset on the LEIDS1 volume, as least for now.



I'm not sure if this will stay this way when i add more volumes.



Mike not sure yet if the volume with the most space or extents is allocated first when there are multiple storage volumes will affects this?



I will do some more trial and error testing to see how this works. Thanks everyone for the replies.

Non-specific volume requests without SMS will go to volumes mounted with use attribute of STORAGE. Use MOUNT command to change from PRIVATE to STORAGE and vice-versa to influence which volume(s) a DSN will go to when no VolSer is specified. Parmlib member VATLSTxx sets those volume attributes on IPL. Mount command can change without IPL.

On z/OS, the SMS (System Managed Storage), four ACS routines checks to see
if the dataset should go to a Storage Group. These routines are written by
each installation and are often LPAR specific. It will assign a storage
group then the routine will select a volume in the storage group. If not
assigned to a storage group then the PARMLIB(VATLSTxx) use attribute will
specifiy Public for Temporary datasets and Storage for Permanent non-sms
datasets. These are custom and specific to each LPAR.

Prior to SMS control, or if your ACS routines are told to
ignore specific HLQs, we would create a dummy dataset
spanning any number of volumes, to do a refer back.

Example, create a dataset called SYS8.PERFDATA using
IEFBR14.
//DD1 DD ..... SPACE=(TRK,0),VOL=SER=(PERF01,PERF02,PERF03)

Then in any JCL, you can use VOL=REF=SYS8.PERFDATA

See if this works for you...

An unspecific allocation will go to a volume marked as STORAGE.

To prevent unspecific allocations to go to a volume, mount it PRIVATE.

Hello!
Let us be polite to the fellow Tony. For all we know he's running an
older release of Z/OS (Ycch!) via Hercules, or even, (something forbid
it) a newer release the same way. And naturally we'd need to know more
about how our friend is indeed doing that.

And let us be careful, there's still a rumor going around (very fast I
think) that IBM does read this group and probably the others.

release. :-)

I believe I was perfectly polite. But regardless of the z/OS release,
IBM-MAIN is the place for this kind of question. I, personally, don't care

IBM-MAIN is going to ask either. But there are plenty of people on there

Yes you were.

But anyone who just joined the group might not think so. And the rest
is for the same reason.

And the z/PDT system is actually intended for the pro developer,

dataset using the HLQ JS51 I want it to go to a this new
volume (LEIDS1) I created. Instead when I create a dataset
like JS51.TEST1 it goes to a VOLUME called JASYS volume. SMS
is generally not being used on this system. So what in the
Z/OS setup (without SMS) tells it to create the dataset on
JASYS ? I want to change it to point to LEIDS1.
This is a z/OS question that doesn't belong on the H390
group. I can't see that it has anything at all to do
with Hercules.

Any pointers

Ask on IBM-MAIN. There are lots of z/OS-knowledgeable people
there.

Yeah, I combed through IBM’s site to find the price and I was shocked to find that the annual cost is more that my computers, phones and all my kitchen countertop devices. Probably my TV too. And that’s just the annual cost. A permanent license is in used car territory. This either fits in with IBM’s general soak ‘em pricing policies (software and hardware) or a way to dissuade hobbists like us. Strange because I can only assume that the pool of mainframe knowedgable folks is diminishing and if I were them I’d want to encourage us. The bigger the pool of potential empoyees, the more likely companies are to want to stay in the mainmain biz. Example in point. Oracle gives away copies of the database and Java, not to mention a few other things, if you have a developer’s account, which is free. Oracle is among that set of enlightened companies which believe that the more you can generate interest in your products, the better the likelyhood of future corporate licenses. And lets not talk about Linux.

This all of course assumes that IBM wants to stay in the mainframe business..

People asked for something like that for years,
and IBM delivered it - zPDT - which costs less
than a car.
BFN. Paul.
I truly hope that IBM does read this group, and maybe realizes that perhaps it wouldn't be a bad thing for them
to have "less expensive" options available to those of us who are retired hobbyists! But then again there's
those letters I-B-M .............. :-((((((

Hello!
Let us be polite to the fellow Tony. For all we know he's running
an older release of Z/OS (Ycch!) via
Hercules, or even, (something forbid
it) a newer release the same way. And naturally we'd need to
know more about how our friend is indeed
doing that.
And let us be careful, there's still a rumor going around (very fast
I think) that IBM does read this group and probably the others.

All works fine except when I create a
