Question:

Does CA PDSMAN support Extended Address Volumes (EAV Devices)?

Environment:
PDSMAN V7.7z/OS 1.12 and above
Answer:

Yes. CA PDSMAN does provide support for Extended Address Volumes (EAV Devices) with required APAR RO22426 applied. This is the description of the APAR to provide information regarding the various CA PDSMAN components affected:

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                 
With z/OS 1.12 IBM announced support for Partitioned 
Data Sets (PDS) and Physical Sequential data sets    
(PS), as well as most other data set types, to reside
in cylinder-managed space of EAV devices.            
                                                     
This fix adds support to CA PDSMAN space management  
functions for these data sets. Specifically:         
                                                     
 - FastCopy XCOMPRESS command is modified to report  
   space added or released to/from cylinder managed  
   data sets correctly.                              
                                                     
 - EZYEDIT RELEASE command is modified to report     
   cylinder managed data sets correctly.             
                                                     
 - EZYEDIT ADDSPACE command is modified to correctly 
   report space added to cylinder managed data sets. 
                                                     
SYMPTOMS:                                            
Without the changes provided by this PTF, PDSMAN may 
not correctly report space management functions      
performed on data sets residing in cylinder managed  
space.                                               
                                                     
IMPACT:                                              
Impact is limited to FastCopy XCOMPRESS, PDSM10      
EMPTY/RELEASE, and EZYEDIT RELEASE and ADDSPACE      
commands.
