Abstract: Couple Data Sets (CDSes) are the cornerstone of sysplex. Careful planning is required to ensure CDSes are always available, never corrupted and never misused such that they trigger a high-impact failure scenario. This paper contains a list of the best practices for CDSes. The paper also notes known field reported issues associated with CDSes. For greater detail on the best practices and known field reported issues please see “Couple Data Sets Best Practices and Avoiding Disasters” white paper WP102281.
