I didn't know that! I then went to the z/OS 1.13 JCL Reference manual and confirmed it. There are some interesting other comments there one should read. Dynamic allocation allows the longer retention period, too.Blackthorn wrote:What release of z/OS are you on?
I believe in 1.13 the maximum value for RETPD is increased to 93,000 which is approximately 254 years.
