Question: 

How do you add data sets to the external data set tracking table?

Answer:

The following document describes how to run CAS9 (CAIRIM) to update an existing external tracking table for a CA 7 instance.

  1. After adding new data set names to the table, you will assemble and link SASSXDSN and also refresh LLA (if needed).

  2. You will create a new member in your L2OPTS pds called XDSNUPD and it will have the following control card:

    CA71 UPDATE XDSN(SASSXDSN)

  3. Next you will run CAS9 (CAIRIM) to load the new table using the following os command:

    S CAS9 ,L2OPTS=XDSNUPD

The following is a sample CAS9(CAIRIM) JCL:

 
//CAIRIM EXEC PGM=CAIRIM,REGION=0M
//STEPLIB DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.common.services.loadlib
// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=your.CA7.loadlib
//PARMLIB DD *
PRODUCT(CA-7) VERSION(L2B3) <-- change version if needed
//L2OPTS DD *
CA71 UPDATE XDSN(SASSXDSN)
//KEYS DD DUMMY
//
