Today I want to talk briefly about our stand-alone dump program. I hope you never need it and you system always runs fine.
You may write the stand-alone dump to tape or (ECKD / FBA) disk. Because of performance reasons I would prefer the stand-alone dump to disk to reduce the down time.
If you upgrade your system to a new z/VSE version, release or refresh level, please always create a new stand-alone dump program (tape or disk) with the DOSVSDMP utility.
If you have to take a stand-alone, please "store status" first and IPL the stand-alone dump program on tape or disk.
More information is in the z/VSE Diagnosis Tools and z/VSE Hints & Tips books, that are located on our docu
