Issue:
Why has the allocation changed in this refresh job for MCOLIB?   In the job, we're using MODE=RPT.

We are confused because the PSP doc states should be FB.

We are putting on the 1710 PSP for V14.0 to 14.1.


 
Resolution:
The RPT run is only to determine if you will have space problems in the PSP datasets.

MICS maintenance is not delivered for PSP.MCOLIB. Any changes to sp.MCOLIB is done via the upgrade checklist/jobs..

It is suggested that you delete or rename it and allocate a new.

Record format . . . : FB
Record length . . . : 6144
Block size . . . . : 6144

Then, run the load job with MODE=DASD.

It has always been FB so it was changed in the customer's environment at some point for some reason.
