DISK and TAPE files information

Post by deepu » Tue Apr 28, 2009 5:21 pm


For a tape file if we give TAPEINFO..it will show all the information like created date,created from which job,user,LRECL,etc.,..

Can we get all the information for a disk file especially who created the job and from which job it's got created...is there any option/command to get that info for a disk file....

Thanks in Advance,

Command "TAPEINFO", which you talk about is some in-house tool at your shop. It's not from standard ISPF commands.Actually, this all depends on how the Tape Management System is set up at your shop.

Get in contact with your support people they can help you in this.

it is possible to find out only if the job which creates that file ran through Ca7.

Below command u can use at that time.

Code: Select all

ldsn,dsn=file name,list=users
