Description:

Default DEVICE type is 3380 now and needs to be 3390 and default BLOCK SIZE should be 27998 instead of 4096.

How can these default values be changed in CA Datadictionary?

Solution:

Update the attributes (U ATT in DDOL) on columns DEVICE and BLOCK-SIZE in DATA-DICT table AREA.

Put 3390 in attribute value for column DEVICE
and
Put 27998 in attribute value for column BLOCK-SIZE

After doing the apply, run program DDCFBLD with card -HSD RESET in SYSIN.
