I/O error with specific member

Postby atodpquery » Sun Nov 16, 2008 4:58 am

I have a problem that I have error while trying to get a record. I have a PDS which has a few members in it. It does not matter the access to the member is via REXX programming or to browse member manually. It saids I/O error. Is it possible that there is some built in functions to lock the member with a specific name or any other possibility. Is there a command to check that the individual member status.

:idea: Thanks.

What happens if you try to "copy" the member in batch?
Hope this helps,

Chances are very good that some job added a member and changed the BLKSIZE to a smaller number. This makes existing members with large blocks unreadable. COmpare the current attributes to the original. Run an update job again and specify the original BLKSIZE on the DD card.
