Title: Modifying data set name qualifiers

Abstract: An apparatus, system, and method are disclosed for modifying data set names. A communication module receives a data set name as an index of a catalog entry for a catalog. The data set name comprises at least two qualifiers. A modification module modifies at least one data set name qualifier using a naming algorithm, wherein an alias qualifier is not modified. A store module stores the catalog entry indexed with the modified data set name in order to optimize the location of that entry within the catalog.
