I recommend to run the VSE/VSAM catalog check service aid (IKQVCHK) before the
migration to z/VSE 5.1 to determine whether a catalog is damaged - and after migration.
You may check your catalogs from time to time during normal operation too.
I also recommend to run the VSAM LISTCAT before and after the migration
and verify in the output, e.g. if there are space allocation mism
For IKQVCHK and LISTCAT please consult your VSAM docu
You may also find a little tool useful, that analyzes the LISTCAT output.
The tool runs on your PC and takes e.g. the LISTCAT output you
downloaded to your PC as input.
The tool is called Multi Instant Logic Analyzer4VSAM and
can be downloaded from here -> http
