Un-Answered Questions { Sysplex }

is there any other way to install s/w in mainframe apart from smp/e system?


INCLUDE is used ONLY on MVS/ESA Version 4 or higher systems to name an INCLUDE group. An INCLUDE group is a set of one or more valid JCL statements that are stored together in a JCLLIB data set or a system procedure library, and that are read in and used to replace the INCLUDE statement itself within the job. Any number of INCLUDE statements can be used in a job, but the name field value used on each should be unique within the job. The INCLUDE statements can appear in a job anywhere after the JOB statement, but may not appear between a CNTL and ENDCNTL JCL statement.


How is it possible to do a cross-sysplex copy of a PDS dataset by running one JCL on the target sysplex? I tried to use IEBCOPY with SUBSYS & CSM as follows: //CSMTRAN1 EXEC PGM=IEBCOPY //SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=* //SYSUT1 DD DSN=PDS-Dataset-name-from,DISP=SHR, // SUBSYS=(CSM,'SYSPLEXNAME-FROM') //SYSUT2 DD DSN=PDS-Dataset-name-to,DISP=OLD, // SUBSYS=(CSM,SYSPLEXNAME-TO') //SYSIN DD DUMMY This did not work. I always get the following error "IEB1071E DD NAME SYSUT1 IS SUPPOSED TO BE A PARTITIONED DATA SET BUT IT HAS NO DIRECTORY. EXPECT A TERMINAL I/O ERROR. (DS1LSTAR=X'000000' DS1DSORG=X'0000' JFCDSORG=X'0200') " The source dataset is a catalogued pds dataset with many entries. The target dataset is allocated in the same job some lines before the transfer. I got an example like this for PS datasets with IEBGENER. But for PO datasets there should be a similar possibility...
