MADS considerations

Multiple area data sets (MADS) are not supported for offline reorganizations.

The offline reorganization function searches the area data set (ADS) list that is registered for each area (in collating sequence by DD name). The product selects the first ADS that is marked as available for use and that has no error queue elements (EQEs). If an ADS is found that meets both of these criteria, it is the only ADS that will be reorganized. All other area data sets are marked as unavailable. After the reorganization completes, use the IBM Online MADS Create utility to resynchronize the other (unavailable) area data sets.

If no area data set is marked as available, or if all available area data sets contain one or more EQEs, reorganization is not performed for that area.
