How can you determine which CA PDSMAN $ACCESS and $UPDATE rules match a particular library?


CA PDSMAN provides a utility program named PDSM34. This utility will provide a report that provides the rules in play for a specific dataset name. Whatever the matching $ACCESS and $UPDATE rules are for a library name you specify will be reported on. The CA PDSMAN utility will process the rules in order. The utility can be executed as a batch program or online by selecting option 4 on the PDSMAN ISPF Master Menu.

Sample Batch process

//PDSMRPT  DD  SYSOUT=*                        
//SYSIN    DD  *
