Abstract

Configuration Data Set BUILD (CDSBUILD) complements Interactive Storage Management Facility (ISMF) for managing Storage Management Subsystem (SMS) configurations by providing an MVS batch alternative with fast execution for initial setup of complex configurations; backup of configuration input specifications; hardcopy listing of specifications; full use of system editor functions (global changes to constructs, find/change, browse).

Configuration Data Set Build Batch Program

      Configuration Data Set BUILD (CDSBUILD) complements Interactive
Storage Management Facility (ISMF) for managing Storage Management
Subsystem (SMS) configurations by providing an MVS batch alternative
with fast execution for initial setup of complex configurations;
backup of configuration input specifications; hardcopy listing of
specifications; full use of system editor functions (global changes
to constructs, find/change, browse).

      CDSBUILD offers the following features for creating SMS
configurations on MVS/ESA* DFP systems:

o   Easy to use and understand scripts with keywords similar to ISMF
    panel keywords.

o   SMS Configuration Services interfaces for defining entries in an
    SMS Source Control Data Set (SCDS), for error checking, and for
    consistency checking.

o   Batch interface for testing of Automatic Class Selection (ACS)
    routines with a configuration previously defined by either
    CDSBUILD or ISMF and script ACS read-only input parameters.

o   Simplified updating of configurations to take advantage of new
    release enhancements and specification changes.

o   Fast execution in batch mode saves time in initial setup and/or
    redefinition of complex SMS configurations.

      CDSBUILD builds parameter lists and data structures required by
SMS Configuration Services and invokes the desired SMS service for
MVS/ESA DFP systems.
