Hi, We are switching to use the unload utility from the unload program (dsntiaul). I would like to know how to use the template feature to allow multiple volumes to be used in the output. Since we use SMS to manage our storage devices and we want the output on dasd not tape, we normally can code UNIT=(SYSDA,10). I can't seem to see how we can do this using template? When using dsntiaul we code the output jcl as follows: //SYSREC DD DSN=DB.Z1OVMT.ZMX1E.S3INTXT.ETL.F000.DATA, // DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE), // UNIT=(SYSDA,10), // SPACE=(CYL,(150,50),RLSE) When using the template feature, we can only code UNIT SYSDA. TEMPLATE UNLDDS DSN 'DB.&DB(6,1).&DB(8).&DB(2,4)..&DB(6,1).&JO(5)..&TS..ETL.F000.DATA' UNIT SYSDA DISP(NEW,CATLG,CATLG) SPACE (250,250) CYL

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

UNIT=(SYSDA,10) means that up to 10 volumes will be searched for additional space if needed.

So, if the template does not support it I guess you cannot use it.

However, I would think your SMS would be setup by storage groups and the searching of additional volumes should be automagic.

To test if SMS is setup that way, you might try running your job without specifying “,10″ and see if indeed SMS will spread your data across multiple packs… you also might ask your storage admin
