Define/Create VSAM-E file

Post by ballj35 » Fri Mar 04, 2011 12:29 am

I need to create/define a VSAM file with Extended Addressability or a VSAM-E file as it is known. We do not have a Systems Programmer or Storage Admin person here and therefore, I have been tasked with creating this file.
I think I need to define a DataClass for it. When I tried this, then I found out I need to Define a SCDS. I am unsure of the values to input here and need some direction.
Is there anyway someone can give me the condensed version of how to do this or an easy way to create this VSAM-E file. We are running on Z/OS 1.12.
Thanx in advance.
