Closed as new function.
Introduce new IDCAMS ALTER attribute USERCATALOG which in conjunction with NEWNAME parameter allows to change the User Catalog name. USERCATALOG/UCAT attribute can only be used together with NEWNAME parameter.
Currently IDCAMS ALTER command does not allow to use NEWNAME parameter for user Catalog itself. The following error message is displayed on the attempt to rename a Catalog: IDC3009I ** VSAM CATALOG RETURN CODE IS 48 - REASON CODE IS IGG0CLBD-8 Based on the customers' requirement, the process of rebuilding a Catalog can be rather time-consuming when a simple Catalog rename is required. This line item should add an extra ALTER parameter which would allow renaming an existing User Catalog on the system without rebuilding it from scratch.
Conclusion: ----------- 1. Introduce new IDCAMS ALTER attribute USERCATALOG which in conjunction with NEWNAME parameter allows to change the User Catalog name. USERCATALOG/UCAT attribute can only be used together with NEWNAME parameter. 2. Modify ALTER function support routine (IDCAL01) and Catalog management code (IGG0CLBD) to be able to change the Catalog name in HKR entry and related LKR C-type entry in the User Catalog itself. 3. Modify Alter FSR (IDCAL01) and catalog management (IGG0CLBD) to be able to update HKR entry and related U-type entry for specified Catalog in the Master Catalog. 4. Introduce new error messages and reuse the existing ones for the following cases: - Catalog is Open in another partition IDC3028I DATA SET IN USE IDC3009I ** VSAM CATALOG RETURN CODE IS 184 - REASON CODE IS IGG0CLEX-4 - Entryname specified is not a Catalog IDC3190I 'USERCATALOG' PARAMETER INVALID WITH ENTRY TYPE - Catalog name specified with NEWNAME parameter already exists IDC3013I DUPLICATE DATA SET NAME - Entryname or newname specified is restricted as a system catalog reserved name IDC3192I RENAMING MASTER CATALOG (IJSYSCT) OR SYSTEM USER CATALOG (VSESPUC) IS NOT ALLOWED Note: ----- If the user catalog name is changed, all existing labels using the old catalog name will point a to non-existing catalog and thus fail when referred to by the application. The user should take care of such labels separately (ALTER does not perform this processing automatically).
