Issue:

The customer wants to know which the JCLCheck is checking to GDG number datasets or GDG base datasets when we have the following JCL.

//INPUT DD DSN=TEST.GDGFILE(+0),DISP=SHR


TEST.GDGFILE.G0003V00 ==> Latest GDG files
TEST.GDGFILE.G0002V00
TEST.GDGFILE.G0001V00

In above condition, does the JCLChek veryfy the TEST.GDGFILE.G0003V00 or DSN=TEST.GDGFILE of GDG base?

Environment:
z/OS
Resolution:

The JCLCheck will verify the TEST.GDGFILE.G0003V00 (latest) for your case.
You can check REPORT3 of the result of Bacth JCLCheck for datasets information.

If you have a GDG base datasets, the JCLCheck verify the GDG base dataset.
If you have a GDG number datasets, the JCLCheck verify the GDG numbers datasets.

 

Our test result as follows;
//SYSUT1 DD DISP=SHR,DSN=CATEST.NAGTST(+0)
//SYSUT2 DD DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),UNIT=SYSDA,
// DSN=CATEST.NAGTST(+1),SPACE=(TRK,(1,1)),
// DCB=CATEST.NAGTST1
