Dataset in Migrat2 status

Postby rahuloso » Tue May 03, 2016 11:19 pm


I have a dataset in MIGRAT2 status, but when I do a list ttoc on it, it shows nothing for MCDS and an entry for BCDS.

I am unable to delete it using HDelete,delete and monay other ways that I could try. Please guide.

Not sure if this will be of help but HSM para says:

What error do you get when you try HDELETE?

Don't you have a site-support group that deals with issues like this? :x :x :x

Have you tried EXPIREDDATASETS(SCRATCH) to see if it goes away? If you have one such data set, it's a good bet that it's not the ONLY data set in this condition.
