This portal is to open public enhancement requests for IBM Sterling products and services. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it thoroughly with my developers. Unfortunately we don't believe that this is a candidate for C:D z/OS enhancement due to technical limitations. I must reject this request, but I've included some suggestions from our development team on other ways to meet your needs. Please don't hesitate to contact our support team if you have questions.
SMS compression and allocation is controlled by SMS generally with an SMS Management class. Data class or Storage class definition and each zOS may define those differently with different names. A CD Process cannot propagate those names from the PNODE to the SNODE because of that. Adding DCB Space information into the Process is one way to do that; however the more effective way is on the receiving side define an SMS class to handle that allocation and override what the CD Process attempts to do.
