Install VSAM Reference Data

Use the following VSAM reference data installation steps to complete and validate your installation:
Load Seed Data
Use the following information to find and populate a VSAM KSDS file to hold the lookup data.
Edit dataset names in GRIDT01.LIB.RUNJCL(KSDSSEED) and in VOLUME as required. This job creates and populates VSAM (GRIDT01.VSEED) with seed data from the dataset GRIDT01.SEED.DATA. 
The following JCL parameters control the process that loads the seed data:
  • STEP03.PARMCD
    Lists the available seed lists held in GRIDT01.SEED.DATA. 
    Note: 
    Seeds that are prefixed with "—" are loaded into the VSAM lookup KSDS. To select the seedlists to load, delete "—". These seedlists are available for lookup with the functions HASHLOV, RANDLOV, and SEQLOV.
  • STEP05.PARMCD
    Add the seedlists to be available for lookup with the functions HASHLOV1, RANDLOV1, SEQLOV1.
    Note:
    Select these seedlists to load in STEP03.
Verify that the VOLUME information is correct for the allocation of the KSDS. Edit the information as needed.
The supplied JCL loads the US STATE ZIP CITY COUNTY seed data (STEP03 and STEP05). Because this data is used in the installation test, keep this data for the test.
Note: 
Run this step as required to refresh the seedlists that are available in the lookup VSAM.
Load Message Data
  1. Edit the dataset names in GRIDT01.LIB.RUNJCL(MSGLOAD) as required. For example, if dataset GRIDT01.MSG.SOURCE is renamed when it was received from MsgData.xmi, rename this dataset.
  2. Verify that the VOLUME information is correct for the allocation of the KSDS. Edit the information as needed
Also rename GRIDT01.MSG.KSDS as required. If this dataset is renamed, make corresponding changes to the JCL procedures in GRIDT01.LIB.PROCLIB and submit the job. The job should complete with a condition code no higher than 4.
Create XREF VSAM KSDS (Optional)
  1. Edit dataset names in GRIDT01.LIB.RUNJCL(KSDSXREF) as required.
  2. Verify that the VOLUME information is correct for the allocation of the KSDS.
This job creates an empty, usable VSAM (GRIDT01.VXREF) file to store and lookup XREF data masking.
Create Subset VSAM KSDS (Optional)
  1. Edit the dataset names in GRIDT01.LIB.RUNJCL(KSDSSUB) as required.
  2. Verify that the VOLUME information is correct for the allocation of the KSDS.
This job creates an empty, useable VSAM (GRIDT01.VSUBSET) file to store and lookup Subset data.
Validate the Installation
Flat File Masking:
  1. Run job GRIDT01.LIB.RUNJCL(GTXPRT). This job should complete with a condition code no higher than 4.
  2. Run job GRIDT01.LIB.RUNJCL(GTXGEN). This job should complete with a condition code no higher than 4.
  3. Run job GRIDT01.LIB.RUNJCL(GTXMSKVS). This job should complete with a condition code no higher than 4
This test uses seedlist US STATE ZIP CITY COUNTY. If this list is not loaded into the VSAM KSDS seedlist, the test fails with return code 8.
