Can you tell me if it is possible to order DFSMSDSS without DFSMSHSM? Or do you have to order both at the same time?
DFSMS is a single product. DFSMSrmm, DFSMShsm, DFSMSdss, DFSMSdfp, etc., etc. all come together, they are not separately orderable features. And in fact, DFSMS by itself cannot be ordered any more. It is part of z/OS, and the last standalone release of DFSMS, DFSMS V1.5, could no longer be ordered as of 3/5/2001. Therefore, if you want to order a higher level of DFSMS, you will have to order z/OS V1.6, because that is the only release of z/OS that can be ordered at this point in time.
