    QUESTION:

    If there is no repository already in existence, DBC will dynamically create the dataset at start-up based on the DBCPARMS options.  In some cases it may be desirable to create the repository outside of DBC for better customization. 
    How do I manually create the DBC Repository (DBCREPOS) so that it pre-exists?


    ANSWER:

    The job to define the DBC repository is an IDCAMS job and does not require any XML statements.
    The sample job is distributed in the DBC sample control library as member DBCIDCAM.
