Unit
Can be one of these:
  • A 3-digit hexadecimal device number.
  • A 4-digit hexadecimal device number prefixed with a slash (/).
  • Device type (generic name).
  • Group name (installation-defined symbolic name).
Data class
Name of a data class defined in your Storage Management System (SMS) installation. Do not enter a value on a system without SMS.
Storage class
Name of a storage class defined in your Storage Management System (SMS) installation. Do not enter a value on a system without SMS.
Management class
Name of a management class defined in your Storage Management System (SMS) installation. Do not enter a value on a system without SMS.
Default High Level Qualifiers
Temporary Data Sets
Can be any multi-level qualifier, which is used by Z Data Tools as the high-level qualifier (HLQ) in names of created datasets. You can use these symbols as part of the HLQ:
&USER
Represents the user ID.
&PREFIX
Represents the TSO prefix.
The default is none (unless changed in your Z Data Tools installation).

High Level Qualifier
Can be any multi-level qualifier, which is used by Z Data Tools as the high-level qualifier (HLQ) in names of created datasets. You can use these symbols as part of the HLQ:
&USER

Data class
Name of a data class defined in your Storage Management System (SMS) installation. Do not enter a value on a system without SMS.
Storage class
Name of a storage class defined in your Storage Management System (SMS) installation. Do not enter a value on a system without SMS.
Management class
Name of a management class defined in your Storage Management System (SMS) installation. Do not enter a value on a system without SMS.
Model Data Set Name
A data set name to be used as the model file for defining the auxiliary data set for a full function edit session. The TSO prefix (as defined for your user ID) is used as the high-level qualifier for any name that is not enclosed in quotation marks.

A model file should be used to determine the volume placement of the auxiliary data set in a non-SMS environment. The model file must be a VSAM cluster. It should be defined as a RRDS or VRRDS depending on the attributes of the data set being edited. You can provide both RRDS and VRRDS models by specifying a model data set name that does not exist and represents a prefix for the data set name that will be used.

The model data set that Z Data Tools uses is the name you provided suffixed with ".RRDS" for fixed and ".VRRDS" for variable length records.

Auxiliary Data Set Name
A data set name to be used as the auxiliary file for a full function edit session. The TSO prefix (as defined for your user ID) is used as the high-level qualifier for any name that is not enclosed in quotation marks.

The auxiliary file must be a REUSEable RRDS file, whose record length definitions must be compatible with the file being edited.

If this field is left blank, a RRDS file is automatically defined for the edit session and subsequently deleted.

It should be defined as a RRDS or VRRDS depending on the attributes of the data set being edited.

You can provide both RRDS and VRRDS data sets by specifying a data set name that does not exist and represents a prefix for the data set name that will be used.

The auxiliary data set that Z Data Tools uses is the name you provided suffixed with ".RRDS" for fixed and ".VRRDS" for variable length records.
