PCSEVBR is an MVS utility program which processes FAQS/PCS back-up tapes created in the VSE environment with the PCSEVBR utility. Using PCSEVBR, an OS/390 or z/OS installation can restore VSE JCL streams from a back-up tape and load them into a partitioned data set (PDS or PDSE).
PCSEVBR was initially designed for VSE sites which migrate to MVS and have their VSE JCL stored in FAQS/PDS libraries. PCSEVBR can be used during the course of the VSE/MVS conversion to facilitate the transfer of application JCL streams to the MVS conversion environment.
PCSEVBR extracts JCL streams from the FAQS/PCS back-up tape and generates an input stream which can then be loaded into a PDS using IEBUPDTE or PDSUTIL.
PCSEVBR produces several reports, including a list of extracted members.
Restore the FAQS/PCS back-up tape into a sequential data set and load its contents into a Partitioned Data Set.
