The IBM® z/OS® Problem Documentation Upload Utility (PDUU) is an utility that sends large amounts of documentation in a more efficient manner than sending one large data set to IBM sites. This utility sections the input data set (such as stand-alone dump data set) into smaller data sets that are compressed and sent in parallel using multiple, simultaneous transfer sessions. This results in shorter transmission time for very large data sets. You can also encrypt the data sets. These sessions can send diagnostic documentation to IBM using Secured Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) or File Transfer Protocol (FTP). We recommend using HTTPS for data transfers.
IBM PDUU updates
Check for PDUU updates at IBM Support for PDUU.
Examples for important PDUU function updates:
- Support for IBM My Support CASE number:
Refer to IBM technote, in order to get IBM My Support case support for IBM PDUU
(usage of new parameter CASE to be used instead of parameter PMR)
- Support for new HTTPS transfer protocol:
Refer to PDUU documentation and according to IBM technote
For details of using HTTPS upload with IBM PDUU, refer to our 'Help - z/OS utility help' section
Reference for old z/OS releases:
If the system is running z/OS 1.13, see the MVS Diagnosis: Tools and Service Aids manual (PDF,3.38MB) for directions on how to use this IBM PDUU utility, e.g. AMAPDUPL module (go to chapter 18). For earlier releases, see the IBM z/OS Problem Documentation Upload Utility page for directions to install and use this utility (MTFTPS module).
Download the z/OS Problem Documentation Upload Utility for z/OS releases before z/OS 1.13
In the "Target System" parameter, these addresses must be entered manually.
Note: Use the server closest to your physical location.
