Introduction:

Procedure for reallocating the Queue Dump Data Set with CA 7.

Instructions: 

The Queue dump data set temporarily holds the queue data being moved during a DMPQ/MOVQ operation. It must be large enough to hold the contents of all the queue data sets combined (Active, Preprocessing, Prior-Run, Ready, Request, Post processing and Trailer queues).

This data set is referenced by //UCC7QDMP DD in the CA 7 execution JCL.

To enlarge the size of the Queue Dump Data Set, do the following:

  1. Pre-allocate a larger queue dump dataset with a new dataset name.

    Note: Make sure it is large enough to hold the contents of the combined queue datasets.
  2. Change the CA 7 started task JCL to point to the new queue dump dataset. 
  3. Shut down CA 7 Workload Automation (z1 or z3). 
  4. Restart CA 7 Workload Automation with type ERST.
