Specifying the copied SDUMP data set name pattern (SDUMPDSN)

Use the SDUMPDSN setting in the HFZOPTLM configuration-options module to specify the pattern for naming copied SDUMP data sets.

The data set name pattern should include symbolic values to ensure that each allocated data set is unique. For example:


For additional information about the use of symbols, see HFZOPTLM data set name symbol substitution.

One or more data set qualifiers must be used with the HFZSDUMP_HLQ XFACILIT profile to grant access to users who need to create the data sets. For additional information, see Using the XFACILIT resource class for copied SDUMP data sets.

If no data set name is specified in the SDUMPDSN option, or if the high-level qualifier is NULLFILE, Z Abend Investigator will not create a copied SDUMP data set.
