Retrieving MGMTCLAS information of datasets

Postby er_hariharan » Wed May 04, 2011 8:59 am

Hi
I have a list of datasets (say 100 in number). The objective is to retrieve the MGMTCLAS information of all the 100 datasets. Kindly request to advise
if there is any way to get this information in a single shot - say using any utility or running a job.

Best Regards
Hariharan.

The ISPF SMS panels may provide management class information for a dataset. There is also the IGWASMS function, which is described here. I have used IGWASMS since 1997.

You can also use the result of a DCOLLECT to retrieve the MGMT CLASS.

==> read the field DCDMGTCL of the D record to get it.

Here's a link toward DCOLLECT output structure

Using the Data Set option off the ISMF (not to be confused with ISPF) panel you can generate a list of DSNames. Use the Catalog as the source for the list. Once the list is up, page over to column 26 for Management Classes.
