I have a scenario where there are three steps in a job.
Step1 Creates GDG with (+1) i.e. a new one.
Step2 Does nothig related to GDG.
Step3 Creates GDG with (+2)
DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE) for steps 1,3
Step1 executed successfully. The job fails at Step2.
If i have to restart at Step2, can I create Generation (+2)?
My Answer was: No, since step1 went fine the latest generation was created and now is (0).
Please let me know what is correct. I don't have access to mainframe, so couldn't try it out myself.
