I am seeing the retention period of a dataset as 0. Is that because this is a VSAM dataset. If it is a VSAM dataset how will I find its retention perdiod.

It means that you can delete the file using the PURGE command anytime you want.

RETPD is the minimum amount of time that the file can NOT be deleted using the PURGE command.

IIRC if the file has one, it should be part of the output of a LISTC ENT('filename') ALL command under IDCAMS.  I don't remember ever creating any file with the RETPD option.
