Object Directory List (option 6.1)

Use this option to list the objects from a collection, or a primary or backup optical volume. You can print the list, or, if you display the list, you can browse, print, update, or erase any of the listed objects.

Select the objects by a fully qualified or a generic object name, and specify the collection name, the volser of an optical volume, or both.

The information listed includes:
  • Object name
  • Object size
  • Object location (DASD or optical)
  • Volume serial number (if known)
  • Creation and expiration dates
  • Storage class
  • Management class

Sort the list by object name, size, creation date, or expiration date.

You can use the display as a selection list. To invoke a Z Data Tools command for an object, position the cursor on the desired line, press Process function key (F6), and select the function from the pull-down menu, or type a line command over the beginning of the object name.

The following figures show the object directory entry and display panels.
