Introduction:

Historically CA SymDump for CICS had no batch utility program to manage dumps captured to the PROTDMP dump repository.
The only option you had for copying dumps was to use the IDCAMS REPRO command to copy the entire PROTDMP file.
Starting in release 8.5 a batch utility program IN25DMPU is now available to manage dumps stored in the PROTDMP repository.
This new utility now allows dumps to be copied, deleted, list, locked or unlocked.

Instructions:

The following JCL example uses batch utility program IN25DMPU to COPY an individual dump from one PROTDMP file to another.
In the sample JCL below transaction abend DEC2 is copied to a second PROTDMP file.
Note the keyword ODSN identifies the INPUT PROTDMP file and keyword DSN identifies the PROTDMP file being copied to.
This utility is outlined in the CA SymDump for CICS User Guide in the Batch Utility chapter.
