Rename a Dataset

Hi everyone,

could anyone please let me know among IDCAMS & IKJEFT01, which is the better option for renaming the dataset?

thanks in advance

Opinions are probably pretty varied on this one -- a RENAME affects the VTOC as well as the catalog, so I would probably use IDCAMS (or maybe DF/DSS). I'm not sure there's a whole lot of different in the methods, though -- probably not enough to put a lot of time or effort into. Just pick one and do the rename.
