PS-E not releasing with HSM Migrate/Recall

2013-07-08 Thread Gibney, Dave
Hi everyone, I may be all wet, but this is my best resource for help on this issue until I get back on support with z/OS 1.13. I am running z/OS 1.11 (unsupported). Back in January, I applied all maintenance to bring it up to RSU1301. For years, I have had a MGMTCLAS of ATMBKUPS with

Small product with just a few libraries and fairly stand-alone is ok via XMIT. Especially if it is mostly maintained by replacement. Anything more complex is helped by SMP/E, but even with IBM (and CA) when done with SMP/E, there is still usually half or more of the install doing configurations

Unless you are really out of the ordinary, I would expect the use of SORTWKnn on tape to be rare. AFAIK, It's purpose was for large sorts in the ancient days of expensive disk. It took extra effort to set-up. I believe we had one job back in the 80's and it was changed away from TAPESORT at

Yes, PDS/E shared outside of Sysplex is a problem if the sharing is not close to strictly read only. Specifically, address spaces with the PDS/E open in LPAR A will not like it after you update the PDS/E from LPAR B (we have 4 monplexes and I know this for sure:). There is stuff in memory in

It is unlikely we will ever move to this version of COBOL. The life expectancy of mainframe computing here is low. If we were to need to make this migration, we would find the PDS/E requirement a serious obstacle without some way of mitigating the cross monoplex sharing problem. We have
