This one is untested since 1997. A little warning, though I believe it will still work.
During a z/OS migration (probably still MVS/ESA or maybe OS/390) we needed to restructure the catalog layout. The client did not have a good catalog structure in place and almost everything had ended up in the master catalog. A small nightmare, especially for a smooth upgrade. BEtter worded: they made a mess of their catalogs. (The company does not exist anymore.)
I created some custom programs to compare catalog contents with contents on disks.
The job in CMPLCLVJ does the following:
- Step INTRPOLD – Interpret an existing LISTCAT result for easier handling during the compare
- Step LIST: Create LISTVTOC of desired volumes
- Step INTRPLV – Interpret the LISTVTOC output for easier handling during the compare
- Step COMPLCLV – Compare the Listcat and LISTVTOC
The following Rexx programs are used in this job:
INTLISTC – interprets the LISTCAT output.
INTLISTV – interprets the LISTVTOC results
CMPLCLV – compares the interpreted (transformed) listcat and listvtoc results and reports the results.
