Question:

CA PMO does not manage PDS/e datasets, then why are they listed in CA PMO displays?

Answer:

CA PMO provides toleration support for LNKLST and private library concatenations containing PDSE data sets.

CA PMO is unable to manage PDSE-type libraries due to PDSE structural characteristics. CA PMO now has a DESERV parameter that, when set, installs a Directory Entry Services exit that captures GET calls to intercept and resolve directory searches when a PDSE library is in the LNKLST or private library concatenation.

Required PTF:

Without QO80610, CA PMO will not manage any PDS's in a Private Library concatenation that are after a PDSE. When QO80610 is installed, CA PMO will manage the Private Libraries that follow a PDSE in a concatenation. But, CA PMO will still not manage the PDSE.

The D9 display lists candidate libraries in descending order by total number of searches. So the dataset is listed , because of the high number of searches.

However ultimately the library is marked as ineligible because it is a PDSE.
