VSAM Cluster Definitions

Is there a slick way that I can reverse generate a VSAM CLUSTER defintion for IDCAMS from an existing VSAM dataset? We are missing our actual cards for many VSAM datasets and am too lazy to write them all myself. Please advise.

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

If you have FileAid/MVS then there is a batch option under 3.5 where you can allocate a cluster using your existing one as a model and then view the jcl that it generates and save it in your card library.

    The method KellyO describes is exactly what we wanted to do. However we no longer have access to FileAid. We are now using IBM FileManager. Does anyone know of a way to do the same in FileManager?
